 Day 5 Plying, Spindling and a Silky

An overcast morning cleared into a beautiful sunny afternoon. It was a great day for my next installment of Tour de Fleece spinning. This morning I felt like working with my drop spindle for a while.

While I was spinning my silky terrier Spencer was resting from a rousing round of chase the weasels and birds.

This afternoon’s results are from plyiing the singles from Days 2 to 4.

While I was plying in my studio the bird feeder hanging outside the window was visited by sparrows, goldfinches and a tree squirrel. None of them seemed to mind that I was spinning in the studio about 3 feet away from the window.
What a glorious day!

Fergus and Lila (No Spencer)

Dogs are way cool.  The other day my beautiful Scottie Fergus was sitting out on the back deck.  When i took out my camera he obligingly hung out and posed while I clicked away.

On the other hand, my female silky terrier Lila decided that no way no how was she going to face the camera so this is what I got:

And then there is dog #3, my male silky Spencer.  Alas, he is nowhere to be seen. Every time I take out my camera he runs and hides.  I love my dogs, each with a distinct personality and set of special quirks!
