Garden Party

I've decided to break out the spinning wheel once again and have some fun. I dyed this Border Leceister roving a few years back so it's time to spin. Two different colors to spin then ply together.

 The craft room was in overhaul and I finally found a spot for the wheel so I'm giving it a whirl for 10-15 minutes everyday.
 Love this roving, it's smooth and feels like butter through my fingers.
An awakening has occurred around here and just like the song "Garden Party" by Ricky Nelson (yes I know, I go back a few years on this particular day) I've come to the conclusion you can't please everyone so you've got to please yourself. Pleasing oneself can be a daunting task after XX amount of years (no, I'm not revealing my age...lol) of giving up for so many and realizing perhaps that it's not as appreciated as it could be. It's very early in the morning here and so far the morning isn't going quite as planned, no thanks to Mr. Bettis who discovered the raccoon is in the trash again....*sigh*
Anyone else have a hobby to make your day a little brighter?

Right now trying to keep up with my bloggy friends is the only hobby I have time for!

Happy birthday, friend. I'm sorry it totally fell off my radar. :(

Oooh...I love those colors! I need to sit down with my wheel a little more.

As soon as I can find the time, I have plans to get out my wheel and spin myself some sock yarn for little old me. :) No one else. Just me! I am working on an afghan right now for a Christmas present.
