I still have the very first wheel I ever bought, which is a Nagy purchased in New Zealand, she is made from Kauri which was recycled from demolition and it is still one of the most beautiful wheels I have ever seen. She spins beautifully, but with only one treadle it is slower to spin and takes considerable effort.
Spinning is on my mind today as I have just joined Ravelry’s Tour de Fleece! The idea is that you spin along with the Tour de France during the month of July. This seemed like the perfect time to haul out a rather geriatric Gotland Fleece that I have had stashed in a closet!
The garden shot for today is a shot from one of my perennial borders which are glorious right now, the tall pink flower in the centre is Agasache 'Sunrise Red' (Hummingbird Mint) and the low orange flower is Helianthemum hybid 'Ben Nevis' (Rock Rose), the tall pink flower on the right is Gaura lindheimeri 'Passionate Blush' (Wand Flower), and good old Alyssum for balance.
