Loving this Week

This week I'm loving spinning!

my first spool filled

I have had this spinning wheel since my 21st Birthday, but last night was the first time I have used it.
 A handful of wannabe spinners ( me included ) brought along our spinning wheels to craft group,
 soooo after last night
and a couple more hours today,
 I think I have finally got my rhythm! 
Apparently I just need to light the fire, get cozy and spin away....

Also loving my chooks, they are still giving us plenty of delicious eggs, but best of all they are a free gardeners!

They have scratched up, and weeded half of my vege garden, ready for winter planting.  Love you chooks!

Loving these leggings....
 I used some of the fabric I scored op shopping see here

I got the idea from dana-made-it found here

And loving that a local friend introduced and lended me her snap press, etc so that I could try to make my own pocket nappy....
I'm hooked!
So after a shared Greenbeans order, I am all ready to sew up a set of my own.... thankyou :)

And lastly, I'm loving this

Whats so special about this?
Well its just one of the many projects that Mike has started to complete on his to do list....
 apparently more renovations this weekend......

I came across some of my old nappy making supplies the other day, including some snaps, would you be interested in the fabrics if there was enough to make something out of it? I'd be glad to be rid of it!

I love all of the above! And I can recommend a good plasterer if you are interested. Oh and if you want a coloured fleece I can save you one at shearing time (wont be till next year tho). Our sheep are Arapawa's which I am told are a feral merino, so the fibre could be quite nice?

@PaisleyJade Thankyou, and if you ever get a chance to spin give it a go.... it is weirdly calming :)

Thanks Jimbillsmum, after many renovations Mikes actually got really good at the plastering part! Also loving those recipes books you lent me, I have been busy writing down recipes today :)
And yeah I would be interested in the fleece, I've never washed/carded from scratch it will be the first
