A generous veggie group friend had given me some wool (roving) that she had living in a cupboard. I've been spinning it into a very fine (for me) single and then after watching several youtube clips, had a go at Navajo plying, which is a way of plying the wool from one single bobbin, creating a yarn by looping chains together to form a three-ply.

A kind hearted spinner also sent me home with some of her homegrown apples. Yum!

This week also saw the appearance of another Meal Tree, which you can find more about here
We have an extra long weekend this week, with Monday being a holiday and the kids home from school today with a student free day. It's nice to stay inside, cosy and not be rushing anywhere.
What's been happening in your week?
