Meet Aurora

Well, here is the post! The one I mentioned earlier in the week. What? You don’t remember?

I mentioned earlier in the week that I had some big news… [I am NOT pregnant]. News that pertains to my 2009 goal/resolution list… Meet “Aurora”

Yes, I named my SPINNING WHEEL! 😉 Remember Aurora from Sleeping Beauty? She pricks her finger on a spinning wheel… therefore, the name is quite fitting. Better than anything else… at least I think. I am not normally the type of person to name inanimate objects, but I’ll allow myself to name this.

Yes! I got a spinning wheel! So, I can SPIN MY OWN YARN!! 😀 So, I can sorta cross that off the list, right? I hope to learn how to use this VERY soon. The woman I got it from [one of the nicest people I have met in Arizona thus far] had some other things for me too…

ANOTHER SPINNING WHEEL! This one, however, does not have a name… unless you want to call it Louet… but that is the manufacturer. LOL.

Some bobbins that go with Aurora. [Holds the spun yarn]

Some carders… Essential for spinning! Think of it like brushing the wool, alpaca, or whatever hair you’re using…

She even gave me a pillow case FULL of her brother’s sheep’s wool!!! WOO HOO!! I can start almost immediately. Just need to card and dye it first.

An antique sewing machine…

AND AND AND! A LOOM! I don’t have that yet… I have to go back and get it! It’s pretty big. Anyone want a rug? LOL!!!

No, I don’t know how to spin yarn – yet. But I have been reading a bit about it. She gave me some books and magazines. I will learn!! CAN NOT WAIT!

Anyway. Just wanted to share. I am really excited. Pictures of the loom to come.

On another note… there is another giveaway going on at “The Secret Is In The Sauce”. Click HERE to enter.

Have a fabulous Saturday! Do stop in my comments and say hello!!! 😀

XOXO,

Shealynn
