aprairiesunrise Reskeined this yarn from last week and finally finished plying that burgundy yarn that Ruby was "helping" me with. Now I can move onto new pretties on my wheel! #spin15in15 #aprairiesunrisespins 2d

aprairiesunrise It was apparently a day of firsts for me today (see earlier post for other firsts )! Took my first zumba class and LOVED it!! It was more like dancing than "exercise" and I had a lot better rhythm than a lot of the ladies so I didn't feel like a total beginner. It was fast paced and I got lost a few times, but it was so much fun! #aprairiesunrisegetsfit #sweatnsew 4d

aprairiesunrise Can you see the color @pezgurl84x? It's a coppery red, just the underneath and a teeny bit in my bangs. Kinda fun! 4d

aprairiesunrise It was a long day with my wild child so I don't have a caption for this. But I did get my 15 minutes in at least! #spin15in15 #aprairiesunrisespins #mainefibertools #thewoolywitch 5d
  •   pigsandfrogs I really need to get a supported spindle I see so many cute ones here. I need to find a place to try it 5d
  •   aprairiesunrise @pigsandfrogs You should! I love spinning supported so much! @aaronmakesstuff still has one in their shop, I have a couple from them and they spin wonderfully! This one from Maine Fiber Tools on Etsy spins very nicely too. 4d

aprairiesunrise The moment I pulled this out of the box Ruby gasped, threw it on the floor and started snuggling and playing in it! The quilting is perfect @bustylarue, thank you!!! Now to trim & bind. I have approximately 5 weeks until Ruby's birthday. #briarroserainbowquilt #heatherrossfabric #madebyraepattern #RubyVerna #aprairiesunrisesews 6d

aprairiesunrise Took my new acorn spindle out for a test spin tonight. So lovely! #spin15in15 #aprairiesunrisespins #mainefibertools 1w
  •   onetinyhouse So pretty!!! I recently started trying my new spindle (nothing fancy--it's my first one so I'm still trying it out.) I'm having a hard time with drafting the fiber into small, even pieces that don't break apart to spin. Is that something that will come with practice? Or are there tricks? 1w
  •   aprairiesunrise Thanks @onetinyhouse! Yeah, it does take some practice, my first yarns were not pretty! If it's always breaking apart you are probably just drafting the fibers too far apart. Try grabbing the same amount of fiber as you have been, but not pulling it out as far. If that makes sense! 1w
  •   onetinyhouse Makes sense! I'll try it! 1w
