How about this for Valentine?

Happy Fibre Arts Friday! ... and Happy Valentine's Day, for those of you who celebrate that is. Personally I think Valentine's Day is overrated, it's just another opportunity for commercialisation. Having said that I wouldn't mind if the old man came home with flowers, but I'm not holding my breath. Besides, if he did I might question his motive - yeah, we are romantic like that! ;-)

I remember seeing a poster or a picture that said "yarn is cheaper than roses", but I couldn't find it again,  that's my sentiment exactly!

Something did turn up in the post this week, nothing to do with the old man I can assure you, it's something I was going to get when we were in America but it never materialised, until now:
It's a handmade modular spindle by Ken Ledbetter, made of walnut and maple with a polymer clay inlay. It spins like a dream and I'm totally in love with it!

So, that's my Valentine for this year. Now show us yours :-)

Thanks for dropping by, there is more fibre arts fun at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Indulge your creative side and join the party!


  1. What a beautiful spindle, I think that's an awesome Valentine's day present :-)

  2. It's gorgeous!! I would love to collect spindles like that, but just not into spindle spinning. They would male pretty decorations though. LOL!

  3. Lovely spindle! My husband and I sound just like you and yours!

  4. What a pretty spindle. I would love to learn how to spin! We don't really celebrate Valentine's either.

  5. ooooh, I have one of the Ken Ledbetter spindles and LOVE mine. That is an amazing Valentine's Day gift.
