Spinning Bliss

The PLAN was to spend the day with a number of other spinners, spinning at a guild members home. Somehow the Universe had other plans for me and I ended up spinning, alone, at a local park. It was pure spinning bliss.

The light breeze gently rustling the leaves of the trees, birds singing, colorful dragonflies darting about, chattering squirrels engaged in a scurrying game of tag....all the makings of a most enjoyable afternoon.

Oh wow. That looks like heaven. How much did you get spun? I'm still in the baby steps stage of my spinning, and would love to have a little peace like that.

How much did I get spun?

Not as much as I once did in that amount of time, BUT that's because I'm spinning so much finer now. I got a full bobbin of LACE weight singles done. When I get two more bobbins full I plan to do a 3 ply with them that hopefully will come out at about sports weight.

Wow, I almost feel as if I were there too. Great pictures. Very convincing, that title of yours = ). Spinning Bliss, am I jealous?

Forgot to ask, on my computer, your journal entries don't start until after the sidebar things, the top is empty space. Thats a recent thing, it didn't use to be that way.

Maggie Ann, that's because I used a picture that was a little too large. Normally I crop my pictures to 6", but every once in awhile PhotoShop refuses to crop properly. When even ONE picture is too large all subsequent postings get shuffled down below the sidebar. It will revert back to 'normal' when the offending post gets packed away into the archives.

Thanks for explaining about the 'empty space' Marlene. I've noticed that before on other blogs occasionally.
