Here she is 'Felicity'....
After a year of struggling with my older model I bit the bullet and bought a brand new spinning wheel!
A bit of research and quizzing of friends' and I purchased a MAJACRAFT AURA from New Zealand.
It was the one wheel that could spin from laceweight to artyarn without having to change attachments. She is a joy and so easy to spin with. Isn't she beautiful!....
Its like driving a Cadillac after the old paddock ute!! So smooth, and Fast, a dream come true....
Look here is Clover introducing her calf to the rest of the menagerie. The horses are fascinated by the new edition. Young man is taking it all in his stride. We have a name, after much deliberation by the family we have decided to name him 'Seamus'. (Thanks Linda)
His Dad's name is Douglas so it fitted right in. We had lots of lovely suggestions for his name and it was funny to see that my local friends and other Aussies came up with names that should have been on a dinner plate and the overseas friends all thought of nice Regal Bull names.
Unfortunately we can only keep him until he is 6 mths old because after that his dad will fight him. He will go and live with my friend who will raise him until he is 2yrs old and then yes, he will be in the freezer. I can't do it but my friend can!
So he has a double barrelled name. The boys wanted to extend his name so he is to be 'Seamus Meatballs'.... he will always be Seamus to me though!
I have spent half the day in my Pyjamas spinning and making yarn with 'Felicity', want to see who else is being crafty today?
Pop over to SunshineParadise and see and have a great Sunday.
