Followed by a sunny picnic lunch in the River Gardens with friends.

And a free cake from The Cake Hole (I am SO lucky)!

My spinning wheel is here and unpacked and GORGEOUS, and such a generous lovely gift I can still barely believe the kindness of friends.

I have done lots more gardening and enjoying the sunshine.

    1. We're having such a magical simple week. And the cake IS delicious, if you're ever looking for cake in or near Derby you must look her up! :)

  2. Ohhh, lovely, it's a 1970's traddy (take a look here: http://www.ashford.co.nz/newsite/images/Patterns/traditional-timeline-website.pdf) It is beautiful, it has aged into a lovely colour. It'll be similar to mine, except it will only have one ratio, I believe. So I should be able to answer most questions you have, but there's the UK spinners group and an UK Ashford group on Rav would will undoubtably be able to provide more tips. :) Can't wait to see what you produce.x

  3. Your spinning wheel looks great, hope you can use it soon and share pictures! Mice are not my favourites at the moment, they have a habit of eating and destroying my food crops which they did with abundance earlier thus week boo hoo :(

    1. Oh no! Naughty mice! (These little darlings were eating mealworms and running around in their wheel, so entirely innocent haha!)
