« Shepherd's Pie (with gluten free variation) | Main | being thankful »


I have lots of things to share from our long weekend.  We did not do anything traditionally and I had the time to try recipes.  I am so thankful for my family.  But they both worked most of the weekend.  I took myself off to the Homestead Fair in Waco for the day.

I have never been able to use a drop spindle.  I just use a spinning wheel.  But guess what?  After a patient lady sat with me, I can do it!  See!!!!!

I did that!!!  I am so excited and now I can take spinning with me anywhere.  The patient lady's twenty year old son made this spindle and I bought it at the fair.  I took it to work with me and spun during lunch in the coffee bar.  That means my heavily male dominant workmates asked all types of questions.  Some knew what I was doing, others did not.  This is a good lunch time activity for me.  It helps lessen the stress of work and I am productive. 

Big smiles!  Now, can I get enough yarn spun for Christmas presents?
