|The Original Wheel|
You might not be able to tell much difference, other than the lack of a Christmas tree behind her. She's been oiled, cleaned a little more, and she's been spinning. She told both of us her name: Betty. Since she's from Eastern Europe, we decided to call her Bettina. She spins fast, but true, and she's light and easy to work with.
As you can see, I've already been spinning on her. I bought about 8-10 ounces of Corriedale last year.
It's far from perfect, but I'm a spinner now. :) I've been bitten by the spinning bug. I also promised a picture of this:
You can't see the color really well for some reason, but it's a fuschia color. It's actually quite lovely. Now on to some projects.

We learned a lot at Distaff Day, and we were invited back for another guild meeting. It would be lovely to go, and we might in February. We're going to build a basic tool kit for it, and hubby is looking forward to adding to our collection.
I still have to work on my simple skirt, and the kids' quilts. Sewing has been put on the back burner, as I have to clear the table and move the sewing machine back to the dining room table so I can use it. Now, if you'll excuse, Bettina would like some attention.
