Spindle 2 - Vřetánko 2

Shodou okolnosti byla u nas v klubu pratel vlny akce, kdy k nam prichazi prodejci  a to hned druhy den po tom, co jsem  koupila me prvni vřetánko.  Neodolala jsem  a tak u mne  naslo "novy domov"  vřetánko cislo 2. Pracuje se snim trosku jinak, misto v misticce se toci ve vzduchu. Obarvila jsem take mou prvni varku vlny a  pomalu spradam ( a stradam ) material,  abych se konecne mohla pustit do pleteni.

I bought spindle number 2 at our Woolgatherers guild meeting, the next day I've got my "supported " spindle. This one is  a drop spindle and it works beautifully. I also dyed my first batch of fleece and I like the way it looks after I spun it. Ohh, the possibilities.....I am working on producing enough yarn to start knitting.








 Some odd bits and ends 



Blog Magic with hook and needles navstevuji uz nejaky cas a moc se mi libi  Vendulcino hackovani.  Pro ty, kteri jeji blog a praci neznaji prinasim alespon malou ukazku a doporucuji zaskocit na navstevu. Ne nemam zaplaceno tady reklamovat jeji vyrobky, jsem jen  obdivovatelka jeji napaditosti a zrucnosti :)

I visit Magic with hook and needles blog for a while now.  I like Vendula's whimsical creations and I suggest you go and see more of her work ( this is not a payed endorsement  :) ) 




Dalsi kreace, ktera me zaujala jsou tyto kocky do oken. Vtipne a nenarocne na pleteni (popis v anglictine) jiste vykouzli usmev nejenom na detskych tvarickach.


I also like these   " Window Cats "  Aren't they cute?

Spindle - Vřetánko

Dnes jsem v bazaru objevila tohle nadherne vretanko.Bylo pohozene mezi kuchynskymi potrebami protoze si nejspis nekdo  myslel, ze je to kvrdlacka, mela jsem zkratka stesti! Po prichodu domu jsem  ho hned vyzkousela,  je to u naz tzv. ruske nebo take tibetske vretanko a krasnou ukazku jak se snim pracuje najdete tady nebo tady.

 Jak se předlo na vřetánku


Today at  Value village I found this beautiful spindle  in the kitchen section. I think, that someone  thought, that it was some kind of wooden utensil. Ha,ha, lucky for me! It is a Russian (Tibetan,support) spindle and you can watch a good example of how it works here or here.



Na fotce je take pouzdro na telefon, ktere jsem hackovala vcera a cepicka pro neter dokoncena pred par dny.

 Also in the photo is a case that I made for my phone yesterday and a hat for my little niece, that I finished couple of days ago. 







 Zpracovavam urodu, tady je plna misa jablek, pripravenych do odstavnovace. Z tohoto mnozstvi je asi 7 litru dzusu, vloni jsem zavarila asi 120 litrovych lahvich.


Apples ready to be juice. I made approximately 7 liters of juice from this amount. Last year I caned about 120 liters. 





Prvni houby tohoto roku :)) Tyhle fotky jsou z minuleho tydne, kdyz bylo jeste hrozne sucho. Od te doby poradne naprselo a tak se zitra chystam zase vyrazit.......


My first mushrooms this year :))  These photos are from last week, when the weather was still so gorgeous and the forest was  dry as a bone. It rained a lot since then and I am planing to go mushroom picking tomorrow.......

Thanksgiving long weekend is here and as always, I am  trying to coordinate the busy schedule of the whole family. So....we had our turkey dinner Friday. Our weather is still gorgeous, and suppose to be for the next week or so,  and the fall colors are ohh so beautiful!
