It's mine!! It's mine!!!

It's official. LOL I am finally the owner of a spinning wheel. Yes after months of spindling I can finally say that I am now joining the ranks of all you other spinning wheel spinners. Yesterday will while out with my family (dh, my children and inlaws) I got a call from my mom. Remember she said that she was going to give me her kiwi? Well while she was out waiting for her prescription to be filled she was walking through a historic little mall area and happened upon an Ashford Traveller. The lady original wanted $75 for it but wound up seling it to my mom for $50. Yes it's an older one and it needs a little repair but $50 for a spinning wheel? Come on now you know that is a good deal!!! Well since my mom now has 4 ashford spinning wheels: a Kiwi, Joy and 2 travellers. I am now the proud owner of an Ashford Traveller. I get to pick her up later on this week. Have to wait for my hubby's off day so I can get it. I am hoping to percede her to bring it to me before then but I don't want to press my luck. LOL I am soo excited. I really need something to help take my mind off of certain situation right now so this is a blessing. I may just name her that.... My new (to me) Ashford Traveller will be named "Blessing".
