Yesterday I started spinning on my new Joy Spinning Wheel, wow, I love it! It’s quite different to my Traditional Ashfords, but once you get the hang of it you’re on your way. I am busy sorting out my studio at the moment, I can’t wait for everything to be in order, I really need shelves and we have been looking all over, you know the ones that are attached to the wall and not free standing? Well we gave up trying to find them today and then I remembered a few years ago, someone gave us some really old Oregon pine shelves! We have pulled them out and my love (Richard) has been sanding them down for me this afternoon. I can’t wait for them to be finished, I will post photos soon. It is so wonderful to have a room where I can work… at least all my fabric and yarn can be in one place and hopefully, tidy:) It is so sweet how my little ones pop in to visit while I am working in the studio and then they like to also be busy with some or other craft or handwork. Caiden made a felt wallet yesterday while I was spinning, he enjoys sewing so much. While we were out yesterday we went to a thrift shop and I found the perfect chair for my sewing table, I just adore thrift shops, I could spend hours in them.
I bought this beautiful Camel Silk roving form Felt Studio UK and have so enjoyed spinning it.
