Great Turnout!!

Today I hosted our weekly spinners gathering. This is the first time I've done so in quite some time... I think last summer or fall. During the winter I don't host as my driveway is "nasty".

Today we had a good turnout: Louise, Fran, JoAnne, Rosalie, Barb N., Barb H., Bernice and of course myself made 8 in my tiny living room. It was wonderful.

As well as working on spinning, inkle weaving and other fibre related jobs each brought along, we talked about the upcoming Sheep-to-shawl demo at Lumby days June 10 ... ideas for the shawl we'll make there and at the Salmon Arm Sheep-to-shawl competition in September.

I really enjoyed having the ladies over! I served bread pudding (2 kinds... carob chip and raisin.. variety is the spice of life) and tea (again 2 kinds... Almond Rooibos and my home grown, fresh picked Chocolate Mint which was very popular).
