Summer spinning and heat

While taking a break from spinning, I happened to

catch a swallowtail on a hummingbird bush.

I found this interesting link http://www.pjsadventures.com/DragonsKeep/personal/PVCWheel.html,

plans to make a walking wheel from PVC.

This is similar to the Babes Walking Wheel.

On another spinning note, I have come across the

Mother Marion kick spindle, I first saw a clip on

">'>you Tube. Looking interesting.

The cicadas started to sing a few days ago. Even with

the dastardly heat it's nice to get out in the evenings.


  1. Looks like a lovely garden. A hummingbird bush is one of my favorite plants!

  2. Vicki,
    That Mother Marion video is neat. That looks like an interesting gadget. How's the spinning going?

    Oh what a lovely butterfly Vicki. I'm starting to take pics now too, mostly posting them on my other pages so as not to slow down the downloading too much. I am so glad you are having so much fun with spinning, it looks fun.
