I did a Bad, Bad, thing......

Some people are addicted to drugs, some people are addicted to booze, and the select few like me are addicted to all things fiber.....................

I was trying so hard to be good. I searched and searched and finally found an intact minors head for some one who was interested in buying a local antique walking wheel. I thought I might be able to find another one some where so I just started browsing online through all things spinning.

Then, I saw it! All pretty and blue and cute. But the price just was not quite right, so I sent an offer. Imagine my shock when the offer was accepted!



My new wheel sporting a bit of blue on it's way to me all the way from Lithuania.

Shhhhhssss...........
Don't tell Bill!

I was looking at this wheel too. At the time, I couldn't afford it. Is she really as pretty as the photo? Does she spin well? If I couldn't have her, I'm glad someone got her that will appreciate her.

Weeellllll..... This is one of those wheels that looks a lot better in the photos. Two of the legs are about 1-2 inches short. Flyer needs repair. And they forgot to mail the footman. Oh and they broke part of it when they disassembled it. I was so very disappointed, but......................

I have taken it to friend who is a woodworker and he's giving it a major overhaul. He's repaired several antique wheels for me, so I have great faith this one will get the same great service.

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
