I'm having a day off today, everything is ready for Wonderwool, so I decided that a little time to relax probably wasn't a bad thing.
We've also had the building inspector here to sign off on the barn, so I escaped in to the sunshine to walk with the dogs. Once we got back I pulled out all the spinning wheels for their annual spring clean. The Traveller is hopefully going to a new home at Wonderwool so I wanted to give it a good clean and make sure it was spinning nicely for it's new owner. Over the winter it's easy not to notice the layer of dust and grime that develops in the nooks and crannies, but in the spring sunshine they were all looking rather grubby. They all had a wipe down, all the old oil has been wiped off, and they've had a fresh coat of Danish Oil to help stop the wood from drying out. They all look so much better for a bit of tlc, and will probably spin more smoothly as well.
I hope to see some of you at Wonderwool, and for everyone else, the shop will be updated when I get back and unpack.
PS. New postage prices come in to effect next week, this particularly affects European customers so if there's something you have your eye on then now might be a good time.
