Getting the dust off the wheel

Remember these that I got from PetuniaLu at SAFF??



Well, so far I have turned them into these. I still need to ply them together.




I ended up with 2 bobbins of the lilac color and one of the fawn color. I am planning to ply one bobbin of fawn with one bobbin of lilac and then leave the other lilac as a single. I'm not sure what I am going to do with it yet, I was thinking of maybe making a hat and using the single for the trim or something like that. Not too bad for having to literally dust off the spinning wheel before using it I don't think!

Here's a picture of Petey swimming out in the pond to retreive his favorite toy. As you can see - the pond is coming up nicely! It is almost full now and NOT LEAKING! YAY! I'll post more pictures of the pond tomorrow.

Are you sure that is Petey? It looks like it might be a cousin of the Nessie? (with fur)
