Over the Thanksgiving holiday I was lucky enough to be able to meet up with my grandparents, which is not something I'm always able to do. We had a great time exploring the parks and town of Helen, GA; it was so nice to take a break from the Florida heat. As an added bonus, my grandmother brought with her some very special cargo: a spinning wheel!
She found this wheel at an antique shop in DE and was kind enough to pick it up for me. For years now, I have been dreaming of finding a spinning wheel: one that I can try to learn to spin on [because in my over-ambitious mind I have the time for that] and be inspired by. The craftsmanship of wheels like tihs one is so beautiful.
As I've said before, I truely believe that when we surround ourselves with beautiful tools we can be at our creative best. This wheel will definitely help me wind up some of the pattern ideas I have floating around in my head.
