The SMGSW's Annual Spinning Bee was held this past Saturday at Tare Shirt Farm in Berwick. Tare Shirt Farm is the beautiful 18th century farm & home of Peter and Nancy Cook.
Patti, Eileen, Carol and I packed up our wheels and headed there for a lovely afternon of spinning under the apple trees.
Words can't describe how wonderful the day was, so I won't even try. I'll just share some pictures from the day.

I started the day with two two-ounce balls of this lovely Romney/Mohair roving which was part of my gift bag of goodies that Marianne gave me for my birthday. As you can see, I managed to spin one of the balls while visiting friends and enjoying the beautiful day. This fiber is a joy to spin and I'm hoping the weather is good next weekend so I can take my wheel out on the deck for some more spinning outside. There's nothing quite like spinning outside on a beautiful day.
