Spinning and Flowering

I tried to do some spinning the other day, but felt that my spindle really should be emptied out. I am still spinning that large amount of roving from last spring. So I wound the singles off so I could spin some more. . . yeah right, it took me about four hours to wind these singles on to here. It didn't look like much, but they are thin enough that it took a while. Needless to say, I barely spun that night.






When I worked at the candy store before, I use to take these spools when the ribbon was all done. I use these for my spinning to wind singles off of my spindle.


On another note, I never buy plants whose only purpose is to flower. My green thumb turns into a black thumb around them. I am not sure why. Any who, I bought this Crocus on a whim last week at the grocery store when it was 75% off. I figured even if it never bloomed for me, I love the look of it's grassy-leaves. LOOK, it's blooming . . . maybe my luck with flowering plants is changing.




3 blooms already and such a beautiful plant it is.






I am quite happy with my $1.99 + tax.

  4. That is the one problem with spindles, isn't it? I've been doing a lot of winding myself lately...it takes forever!

    I'm glad your crocus bloomed. They're my favorite spring flowers. They just look so cheerful.
