Gearing up for Spring...time..Spinning !

Spot the snow......and the alpacas ..
The grass..has been a welcome sight !

Younger boys....and Norris....on the move ..


The weather has been quite kind over the last couple of days...mind you, its still very cold.

We have had a couple of lovely sunny days...and then back to bitter cold...today, its in between !!

I have been in touch with a very nice man, who sells and makes Bobbins. Regular readers will recall that my electric...spinning wheel, has only one bobbin. I am hopefully going to have some made...if all goes to plan. I should have three made...that will enable me to spin two up with yarn...then blend direct onto the other bobbin....which will make things much easier....hopefully I should have one spare....for emergencies...so that would be great...see its not an item of extreme torture...after all ...!!

If all goes to plan this will make my life much easier and I should be able to get on with spinning up larger quantities...of fleece...over the spring/summer.

Things are quiet here at the moment....as the back is still fragile !. so I'm just doing what I have to....I will catch up later on, when my back improves....at this time of year, there are plenty jobs to be getting on with.

I shall be having visitors..next week, my parents are coming up to see me...as my B'day...is pending....and sadly I'll be another year older....!! and I hope another year wiser !!.. Hopefully they will stay for a couple of weeks and the company will be much appreciated....I'm sure that there will be plenty jobs on the list !!!
