The weather has been a little too glorious to be inside blogging. And the birds have been singing a little too sweetly to be on the computer updating the shop. And so I have been spending a lot of time on the back porch, drinking tea and watching the children play in the garden, while I spend some quality time bonding with my new best friend:
It was my birthday last week and so my family and friends cobbled together and got me my heart’s desire — a beautiful Lendrum spinning wheel. It is an absolute joy to to spin on, such a smooth and gentle motion that it fairly seduces the yarn from my fingers. Spinning on it is all I’ve wanted to do. A-a-and… I’ve hardly gotten anything else done all week!
But the garden is now in full bloom, and full of inspiration. So when I have not been spinning, I have managed to bring a little Spring to the dyepots..
As you stand at the kitchen sink, doing the dishes and gazing absent-mindedly at the garden through the open window, a little breeze gently blows the curtain and carries a scent so beautiful and sweet that you instinctively breathe in deeply and, called out of your daydream, realise that it is the smell of the sweetpeas, climbing up the wall beside the window in a riot of wild pinks, their delicate heads bobbing gently in the breeze.
