Turned 50 this week. Acknowledging but not dwelling on it.
Time flies when you’re having fun. And keeping busy.
With that in mind, I’ll just give a brief update on the hoophouse-
We were able to get a little more work done on the north endwall on Saturday, which was beautiful- sunny and about 42 degrees. (About as good as it gets here in January. ) We’re in the home stretch now, but the windows of opportunity are smaller and smaller.
Boo Kitten was also out enjoying some time in the sun- caught here indulging in some catnip remnants in a garden bed
Today is much colder and cloudy. Better suited to spinning.
Elsa is doing a fabulous job on some nice dark brown wool from deep in the stash. She’s such a smooth, solid spinner. And there is something really satisfying about the workings of an antique spinning wheel- the whir of the flyer, the beat of the treadle.
We make a pretty good pair, me and Elsa. Couple of old wool junkies.
