Note the umbrellas , not just for decoration given the Met office forecast of heavy showers which fortunately didn't turn up until after we got home.
I have been told off by other spinners about the state of my wheel, the dinner lady stickers are not very becoming, the other stickers just ruin it, look at the state of the wood and where is your wooden thingy that should be on the end of the bolt bit sticking out at the back??? Well, this wheel has been dragged halfway across the country on more than one occasion, its been on buses, trams, cars, trains and pulled along on a little trolley. Its been used in pubs, clubs coffee houses, art galleries, office staff rooms, fibre festivals,outdoor events, on camp sites and an ukulele festival to name just a few.
Why was my wheel sulking? because it's a Kromski?? no. it's because I was spending my time giving some tender lovin care to this..
And this cute little wheel belonged to the owner of theses lovely beasts :-)
Well, the rain mostly stayed away, lots of people came to see how to spin mainly because of a TV programme shown last night about spinning and weaving and we all had a good giggle including the clown who remembered us from last year when we got him spinning on a drop spindle whilst on stilts!!
Please forgive me if you have seen this picture before, all in all, a grand day out!!
