Sunday we went to church, where all the Mothers received beautiful long stemmed roses.
Sunday lunch was a picnic at our local ice cream shop.
I had afternoon drinks on my Mom and Dad's deck, and Mom surprised me with a gorgeous shawl pin in Denim blue, and a Willow Tree Angel (Mom's gift is the trip to Maryland Sheep and Wool each year).
I got to spend some of my afternoon on my deck, spinning some merino and silk from Hobbledehoy Fibers. I love her fiber so far - this is my first spin with it, but it is incredibly soft and look at these colors!
I am still learning my Lendrum DT spinning wheel. I have yet to name it. Do you name your wheels? I have never come up with a name for my Ashford Traveller.
This Lendrum is a beautiful wheel, so pleasant to spin on. I plug in my Pandora on the Indie Folk Singer-Songwriters channel and away I go.
And I'm almost finished with this little spot of knitting - a Woven Cowl.
It's knit in, you guessed it, The Plucky Knitter yarn. It's primo worsted in the Edwardian colorway.
I got great little buttons for it from Melissa Jean at Maryland. I love handmade. How about you?
