Mailbox Marvels!

This has been a crazy weekend! It started on Saturday morning with a 5k race at our elementary school, followed by a 12:30 - 3:30 rehearsal in C'ville, followed by a 6:30 concert call in Staunton. Today, Sunday, is equally busy: Holy Cross this morning; 12:30 concert call in C'ville, followed by a 3:30 concert and then a farewell reception for our director. :(

This weekend craziness has left little time for playing with the goodies from Saturday's mail delivery.
Jenkins' arrivals!

I'm jumping on the Turkish spindle bandwagon, having ordered three from Jenkin's Woodworking. They are so lovely - I can hardly wait to give them all a spin!

1. Kuchulu in Mora/Ebony

2. Lark/Jay option in Lilac

3. Standard in Canarywood

I'm looking forward to Spring Break and lot of spinning time!

Congrats on the 5k run. Hope you get some down time soon to play with your new toys.

I hope you do a blog post/review once you have had time to work with your Turkish spindles.
