No, not a human baby, but a new spinning wheel!!! Woohoo! Isn’t she amazing?
I’ve been borrowing a wheel from a very generous friend for the past year and a half. I figured it was far past time that I get my own. I began the hunt this winter and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get this lovely wheel. It was owned by an amazing artist who passed away 8 years ago and has been sitting unused ever since. For the past couple of months I’ve been waiting on parts that I needed to make her work and then passed her on to a super talented friend who decorated her with poppies and butterflies. I got her back this morning and finally had a chance to sit down and spin. Wheeeeeeeee!
The wheel is made by Schacht and is called a Matchless….. but that just won’t do. She needs a proper name. Here’s where you come in! CONTEST! 🙂
I’m having a naming contest on my FaceBook page. What do you think I should name her? Leave me a comment on my facebook page and, if I like your name best, you will win a hand spun, wire core bracelet from my etsy store (or I’ll spin you one in your favorite colors)! If you share the contest on your page you get a second chance to win!! Don’t have a FB page? Just leave your comment here on my blog. Easy Peasy.
