The Ozarks Foothills Spinners <and others> had our annual “Beat the Winter Blahs” get-together today, and for once, the weather cooperated. It was windy and a little chilly, but considering that a couple of years ago most of us chickened out because of winter yuck, this wasn’t so bad.
We had lots of food [this is only one end of the table!], plenty of fiber, and lots of visiting and catching up. Some stash changed hands, we had loads of door prizes [more stuff changing hands ;o) ] and a good time was had by all.
I am truly thankful for this group of amazing friends, many of whom I’ve known for more years than I want to think about. The lone man, who is a retired teacher and a weaver, taught me to spin over 30 years ago, and he’s inspired a number of others as well. We have knitters, crocheters, a couple of basketweavers, and one gal who does bobbin lace – a talented and wonderful group of friends.
