A peaceful Friday evening

Thank you everyone for the help with my spinning questions, especially Celeste! I've spent a lot of time visiting Ravelry spinning groups as recommended by Joansie and watching spinning clips on YouTube.


After work today Ryan and I went to Chapters where we picked up a novel for him and these goodies for moi. Why did I pick these in particular? Well, mostly because while there's a ton of spinning books online from Chapters and Amazon, this was the extent of spinning material in stock in the actual store. I'll be enjoying a peaceful Friday evening reading them.


These blooms have survived all the wind, thunderstorms and hail we've had of late, a lot of others have been shredded or crushed. I haven't watered the garden all summer and there's plenty more rain in the forecast.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Thanks! The white/palest of pink flowers are hollyhocks. My aunt gave me 3 of them a few years ago, divided from her garden. :)

Good luck on your spinning adventure! I hear it's highly addictive! Maybe you can set up a wheel beside your desk at work?? I'm sure no one would notice...

Love your gorgeous flowers! I know how disappointing it is when a rainstorm damages plants. At least some survived!

I subscribed to Spin-off for a year. It was interesting to read the articles, but think the you-tube videos are amazing for teaching!
