spinning together

 i got a new wee spindle, 
a friend's recommendation, 
and it's gorgeous!
  10 gram weight. 
you can see that i wound on the tiny bit of spinning i did the wrong way. 
oh well
it has absolutely wonderful action.
 l + j, louise and josh, 
the folks that made their wedding paper with me, 
dropped this by.
 i love this little tree home.
i hope that i will be around for their day, 
but i think i will be traveling out west then. 
i'm too lazy just now to double check. 
and my nose is running with whichever pollen is blowing through the ethers.
it's surely spring!

the little spindle is definately drop gorgeous, and i see it's made of lilac - i haven't seen lilac turned before.
and such a simply beautiful wedding invite, says it all.

Hi Velma, it's that novice weaver from Tanglewood threads! Your new spindle is adorable. I haven't tried spinning yet.
