This is my new wheel from Wingham Wool Work that I got for a bargain price as it had been water damaged from the floods a couple of months ago, it had minimal damage to the varnish and I thought it was coming unfinished but to my surprise it had a clear finish which was just what I would have given it so my Dad helped me assemble it and I just need to adjust the flyer as the bobbins stick on one side before I can start spinning. It also came with the lazy kate.
My box of goodies came a week or so ago, after catching up from a holiday in France I have finally got round to posting about it! The teas are wonderful, strong and really good with milk, I think the Supreme Breakfast is my favourite! Babette sent me some fibre from her Angora bunnies and I will have fun blending and spinning this some time in the future! The sweets well I have left out some Maple Syrup candies as they got eaten and I forgot to photograph them before this, and my sister is having a birthday this week so we will consume the pancakes with maple syrup for her birthday breakfast. The card sent with the gifts is very apt, thank you Babette for a really fabulous KTS swap!
