A close-up look at the newly wound bobbin, just started. To think I haven't done any spinning for about 4 months! Thats interesting roving (processed wool ready to spin) This was prepared at a mill I think..and they added in strips of the chocolate brown. Can you imagine how soft this feels? Yes, that soft!
At long last, I started doing some spinning again last night. A perfect night to spin....while the snow fell heavily the whole evening long. A terrible night for those on the road though. Including our son who drove 4 hours in it without mishap. There were a lot of cars abandoned last night. What a night of snow & woe.
I just finished reading 'The Frontiersman's Daughter' last night and I loved it !!!! What a wonderful read. I'm kind of sorry it has ended, it was so good. I feel like I know the characters personally...well almost! I was telling my husband about some of the story and kept having to stop a bit....my eyes kept filling up with tears. This author is an outstanding writer. I had a day-dreamy moment of writing her a fan letter even. Her grandmother got her interested in the early history of Kentucky...and their family goes back into the 1700's of that era. She dedicates the book to her Grandmother who passed on during the book's publication...at 100 years of age. She dedicates the book to her 'my granny'...with the words, I miss you more than words can say. Oh isn't love sweet and pure! Four hundred and twelve pages of great reading.
