A Grand day out part one

woke up yesterday, sun shinning, hopped on a bus, stepped on a tram and caught a train to Lincoln

So I got off the train and walked up to the canal,

My Destination was the university where the Spinners and Dyers had been holding a Summer school and they were having a small trade fair. I treated myself to all sorts of fluffy goodness for spinning and feltmaking.

I also had the chance to play on a kromski sonata spinning wheel, spins like a dream although a bit more expensive than I was planning on......thinking about it :-)

hope you managed a cup of tea somewhere on your way up the hill! Love the colours you chose, especially the purpley one x

I would say it was well worth the walk up all those hills for those fluffy goodies! You can't beat a bit of fluffiness on a Saturday, or any day, can you?

I don't know how to spin or dye, but it looks like a lovely place to visit!
