Antique Spinning Wheel and Knitting Progress

I completed a little project – a small purse with a finger-woven handle – and a a bonus,      a yarn snake to “hide inside”.   Who says little girls have to play with dolls!   They can play with truck, mud, insects, and even toy snakes!   (I’m thankful that when I grew up, daddy wasn’t focused on “girl toys” vs. “boy toys” – he was thrilled that his girls were interested in trucks, trains, baseball, and Erector sets!)

I also made a cute little cup cozy for my friend Paula….part of her birthday presents.   She loves mermaids, so I thought this would be perfect!  (It’s blocking right now…)

At spinning this week, Alice showed off the adorable antique spinning wheel she’s “fostering” – isn’t it adorable?   It’s a very petite and elegant French wheel of some sort.
