September

Here it is the end of September already, spent the weekend cleaning carpets and doing some outside work to get ready for the dreaded winter months.  Earlier this month I went with my sister and brother -in-law to the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool festival.  My sister is getting into spinning with intentions of weaving her own yarns.  I have been to the festival several times and enjoy it every time, this was their  first visit and they were pretty overwhelmed with all the vendors and activities that were going on. On the way home BIL wanted to stop at Mt Horab and look for trolls.  He found them:

The shop these were in front of had a lot of fun stuff:

This past week Son was driving past a rummage sale and spotted a spinning wheel, they had just opened the sale and he was the first one in and he grabbed this little wheel:

Spinning wheel EG 4

Here she is all cleaned up:

Spining wheel EG2

From the looks and feel of the wheel it had never been spun on, probably just used as a decorator piece.  The wheel was made by an Erwin Griesbach, there is a date of ’84 under the table along with his signature.

That’s all for now.
