I'm Back


I'm back, I'm tired, I have to download all my (not many) pictures, drive the boy to college tomorrow to move in and then I'll start my vacation blog post. See you probably Monday. Highlight of the trip (fiber related), I spun on my Great Grandmother's spinning wheel. Dad was thrilled because he hadn't seen anyone spin on it in 62 years. Here is a picture of Great Grandma Ingaborg at the wheel. It was built in 1890. Photos of vacation to follow!

Welome back, sounds like a fun time. Looking forward to seeing the old wheel. (I'll bet your dad had an ear to ear grin seeing you spin on it!)

I am so behind on Bloglines. Ack! I just got to the photo of your grandmother and her wheel. That is amazing!

I am totally fascinated with the concept that spinning was a common and necessary skill in EVERY household not all that long ago and now it is a "novelty" hobby.

Way to keep the tradition alive!!!

Cool photo! Do you get to have the wheel? Did someone take a picture of *YOU* spinning on the wheel?
