come on England!!

...well football fever is well and truly here, and I write this just before kick off for that all important final first round match. Now, those of you that know me, may find it odd that I have got excited about all this chasing a ball around a field business, but I have discovered that it is a brilliant excuse to sit down in front of the telly with my spinning wheel for a couple of hours!!

'Piece of kit' of the week: - goes to ........the drum carder. It has come out from winter hibernation (under the bed) and complete with new drive band it has been working hard. The fleece has all been washed and is now going through the carding process. I have also bought a Cotswold fleece from the Cotswold Farm park and it has washed up nicely. Has a nice shine and luster to it, so I am looking forward to see what it will spin up like.

Well the football is about to kick off, and my spinning wheel is calling.

Keep on crafting and I hope to see you at PubCraft on Monday 5th July. (7.30 at the Red Lion)
P.S: Photos added after Football match finished. Clearly England appreciated the spinning that took place. Two whole skeins to show for this afternoon's work!
