Okay, I know what you all are thinking, is not 7 dogs, 3 cats, 5 horses and 5 goats enough? Yes, it is, but really how much trouble can one little Ladybug cause?
The long awaited birthday gift arrived home Friday and while the frantic pace of trip packing continues I have managed a little "getting to know you" spinning time in.
It was quite fun getting to assemble her down at the Web-sters with some help from Liz. I broke all the rules and left the box behind! Of course the first thing we did was find the Ladybug. Each one has it in a different place and here is mine.
I've been playing with different fibers in my stash. Basically a hodge podge just to get the feel of the wheel. She is very smooth and I think we are going to get on just fine. The plus is I can grab her easily, and move her around. She fits nicely upright and belted in in the back or front seat of my car and is quite sturdy. So far I haven't had a chance to test her out in the double drive mode, but when I get back from Massachusetts you can be sure we'll have more experimentation time.
Pogo thinks that each wheel should come with a little Chihuahua, or at least a pair of ears. ( This photo reminds me of circling sharks...)
Admittedly there are some days I would like to Velcro him somewhere but on my spinning wheel.....hmmmmm.
On farm news, the crappy weather is back and will be back for the remainder of the week. It will be a messy ride down to the airport early Thursday morning. I leave everyone in Gene's capable hands for the next two weeks. I won't be updating this blog but you can be sure I'll be keeping up with all the blogs I read and enjoy. So those of you who found yourself here somehow and it's seems to be languishing, PLEASE go check out some of the wonderful blogs listed to the right. See you all again here after May 14th!
