Bobbins Are Full

I separated these four braids of the combed top into two piles: orange and multi-coloured orange and pink onto one bobbin and then pink and multi-blue and yellow onto the other bobbin. Some I spun forward draw, and some I spin long draw. I LOVE long draw!

Spinning On My Ladybug 🐞

Here are both braids spun into one bobbin. I love how the colour I got from sunflower seeds casts an ox colour onto the fibre. The hibiscus actually cast a blue colour! I said yesterday the hibiscus produced a pink but I was wrong.

One Bobbin Complete

I don’t have a picture of the other bobbin, but to describe it, I’d say it has earthy tones.

Well that is it for today. It is Sunday, so I am heading out to pick some of the last flowers that continue to bloom in zone 7 (gardening term); cosmos and coreopsis.

Cheers,

Keli

You Can Do This!

You admire support spindles not only for how they look but also for how relaxing the atmosphere is as you watch someone spin with one. Be that someone.
