Spinning sunshine

This sweet shot was taken by Astrophotographer Jack Newton of Osoyoos, British Columbia. Look at more of his images here.

I'm so glad the sun is back. Winter in our area is often the season of mud and gloomy days. Combine that with days that start before the sun comes up and working in a windowless area. Then leaving at dusk and it's no wonder I get a little cranky.

I have my new wheel and have been spinning, the sun is out and things are spouting up everywhere.

Sometimes this is all of the sun I get to see.

The tulip trees are blooming! When we first moved here I had a love affair with Magnolia trees, this is a variety. They grow to be quite large and their leaves are glossy, and waxy.

Now I'm ready to try my hand at plying on a wheel. I have two bobbins waiting for me.

This is at the back of our lot and I let it grow as large as it wants.

Enjoy the sun!!

May your needles fly as fast as dragonflies


  1. I love the flowering shrubs! I wish I had a little yard to enjoy. I guess we never know what we had until we don't have it anymore.

    Your spinning looks very nice. Can't wait to see it after it's plied!

  2. Vicki,
    Your spinning looks great. Good luck with the plying.
