Don't get me wrong, I do like the holidays, but I also enjoy the relative quiet of winter. My son tells me we are in a Blowtorch year- between the highs and lows of the jet stream, so little to no snow this year. As much as I am disappointed by this, I can take advantage of it and walk every day.
Speaking of holidays- Santa came a little early this year.
Rappard Wee Peggy. The owner had not spun on her in years, but she came complete with 4 bobbins, orifice hook and complete flyer. After a clean and a wax, I sat down to spin, and the fact that it is a single treadle is something I will have to train myself in. But she's cute and spins lovely. I was looking for a Haldane (Shetland Wheel) but most are in the UK and hard to come by. The Rappard was made in New Zealand and based on the Shetland style.Whoville". I am sort of making up the pattern as I go along.
The turkey is thawing, and I will make the stuffing and potatoes on Wednesday. The family will all be together on Friday. What more can you ask? Presents are nice but having a dinner together is lovely and seeing everyone laugh together is the best.
My dear friends whom I have had the great privilege of getting to know in Blogland, I wish you the very best for this time of year, as well as 2016. Wherever you are, whoever you're with- you deserve every good thing coming your way.
