Hummingbird's Dance

Last night I just needed to center myself and create. I got out the Country Classic Wheel, dusted it off and oiled it up and went to the fiber room and gathered my goodies. I had some soft brown/gray Shetland Lambs wool that was given to me by a dear friend and then a stash of Casper's locks dyed the many colors of springtime. It has been a while since I have spun on this wheel - never seems to be enough hours in the day so the feel was like meeting up with a old dance partner. I had a core yarn of alpaca and off I went. Soon my partner and I where swirling around as if we had never lost touch with each other. As I switched between the wool and mohair I was reminded of the incredible hummingbirds that live with me. I have dozens of nests in the pine trees outside my doors and they dance around me when I am outside as if to share their stories of adventure. The colors of the men are so shocking while the ladies blend into the background. Just like the yarn I was spinning I could see them all dancing around while sharing their tales of adventure.

I hope you enjoy your day and listen to those who have stories to tell. I will finish up this yarn today and soon I will offer it in my Etsy store. I will be calling it "Hummingbird's Dance"

Would love for it to find a great home where it can tell of it's stories and add to yours.
