isn't it pretty...

Naiomi is spinning so well, I'm still predrafting for her, and the last batch she spun up is so even, she made about 40 yards, I'm really thinking about getting her her wheel, probally a
Babes Fiber Starter double treadle....

and DJ well poor girl I don't think spinning will be her thing... or it's taking her a while longer to catch on, try try again.....

catchya later
