New wheel design

My wheel mod

I finally got around to wood burning my spinning wheel. I found cute sheep and fence clip art for inspiration and based my design around that. I really like the way it turned out. An added bonus of the design is that I can easily remember which direction to spin my singles because it is the direction which makes the sheep move forward. Now I want to wood burn everything in sight. So fun! Next up, my lazy kate (something that holds bobbins for plying when spinning). I"m hoping to put an angora rabbit design on the lazy kate.

The hoarder

Hopefully this is a cute phase an not a budding psychological disorder ;)


In recent weeks Lily has decided that before she can nap, she needs to put every possible object she can fit into her crib. The top of the list is Jake, then her balls, next are her bear and monkey, other random toys, books and an article of clothing or two. There is barely enough room for her but that is the way she likes it. Whatever it takes for her to get a good nap, I'm all for it!
