Yay! Photo uploading working now!

Looks like photo uploading is now working. Think my hubby had something to do with it. :)

The wheel is an Ashford Kiwi and comes in unfinished wood. I was going to just give it a coat of something to protect it until I found a Kiwi group on ravelry and there are tons of people who paint their Kiwi's. Now, pink being my favorite color, I probably should've painted her pink, but I went with chartreuse for the wheel, then a dark walnut stain for the rest of it. I may have to decopage a little pink rose on her just to get that pink on there.
I see a lot of other spinners name their wheels, so any suggestions?

May the Lord abundantly bless your day,


  1. Shucks. I was kinda rooting for pink. Names? Hmmm...The only thing that pops into my head is Suzy.

  2. I love your new little Valentine outfit up in the right hand corner!!! I may have to make a skirt to match!!! Ok, names for the Kiwi.....I'll have to think on that! Thanks for the pictures, I had no idea what it would look like. I was picturing one more like Tasha Tudor's!!! Love ya! Linda
    P.s. We name things around here too. Isn't that funny?!?

  3. Ok, 2 more things:
    How old is your house. I LOVE old houses!!!
    And we need a picture of you spinning.
    Ok, done for now!

  4. To answer a few questions...
    Anna, yes, I know...sigh...not pink. BUT, I do have some beautiful pink fiber that I will spin. I knew my first try wasn't going to be pretty, and I probably won't knit it up, but keep it for prosperity. So I chose the olive bit that I had because it was soft, and I didn't want to waste my pink!

    Linda, my other wheel is more traditional looking, but I haven't figured out how to use that one yet. Yes, the Kiwi is more modern than I would have liked, but the price was much better ($320 instead of upwards of $500). And our house...I'll have to do a home tour video one of these days. I've seen them on other's sites and it's so much fun to peek into other's homes, isn't it???!!! Ours is an 1885 Victorian. I'll save more details for another post! Love ya, too!


Thank you for visiting my blog and I pray that it was a blessing to you in some way today!
