Will There Be Spinning Wheels In Heaven?

A few years ago I became very interested in spinning wool. I shopped for a spinning wheel, found the one that I thought fit the bill, and then....did nothing. When it came right down to it, I didn't want to spend the money. So, ever since, I have said to the hubby, "maybe I'll spin in my heavenly life." Do you think there are spinning wheels in heaven? I'd like to think so. And there is still a sliver of hope that I may have one in this earthly life someday.

Spinning wool is such a domestic pastime. I love domesticity. Busying myself around the house comes as natural to me as breathing. I am what my mom refers to as a "putzer." Inside or outside, I am completely contented caring for my little home acre.

This may be the last pic of a washcloth and sachet for a while...because my hook is moving over to this lovely project, the Anne scarf by MK Carroll.

I received an award from the very nice Jean. The rules say I have to pass it on to seven of my favorite blogs.

Here goes...there's Emily, Sherry, Beverly, Brin, Ruthann, YaYa, and Deb. I have many more "favorite" blogs...I need to take time to add them to my "Blog Buddies" list.

Please accept this award from me and ...
1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Link the person from whom you received your award.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put the links of those blogs on to your blog.
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them!

Here's hoping you are enjoying making a home.

Oh, my goodness!! This is the first ever award I win, I'm so thrilled! Thank you so much for thinking of me. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to do this, but I'll try and follow your instructions in passing it on. The hard part will be deciding which blogs, they're all wonderful!

I really enjoyed your post as spinning is something dear to my heart also. I too have longed for a spinning wheel, but they are rather costly. I still have hopes of someday getting one. But you know what? You can still spin, but using a drop spindle, which is like a little wooden yo-yo. I made a post about it a while back. It's very cheap too, under $20! In fact, mine cost like $15, I think. I also have another one that cost only $10, and spinning on them is SO MUCH FUN!! So don't give up hope, Amy, spinning is something you can do!
