Travelling down another road.....

behold! the newest addition to the house! still working on a name for her. and as long as it took to get my kids named... it may be awhile...and slightly difficult to pronounce. :-)

Double treadle, Double drive. Stained in a lovely golden pecan...which only coloured my hands slightly.

Bruce placed the order last week. it only took 5 days to get here! I have alot of payments to make, but tax money is coming, so it shouldn't take too long.
I have4 not spun anything yet, but just treadling is soo much easier. no clunking, no wobbling. (the old weel had some apparent water damage that warped it.) Bella has already asked for ownership of the old wheel. the older two girls have been drop spindling all week. Both used their own money to buy roving. :-) so it will be a good wheel for them to practice on and keep mine safe.

I am speaking at the ladies night out thing tonight, so pray for me!

Good Job...Looks like a nice wheel. I like the color, but then again, I'm color-blind!

So, did you name the wheel yet? can I suggest OotzliGootzli? It's both appropriate AND difficult to pronounce! :)
