Today is Texas Twisters weekly spinning day. It has become a much anticipated event in my week. I get to spin, share and clear my head of other concerns. This group has talent, generosity, kindness, acceptance, and reassurance to share in a most unthreatened way. I think it's my version of the '50s sewing circle. We share fiber, equipment tips, techy computer stuff, and along with business and family concerns. And, some days like today, we will even share homemade pies, this time by Laurie. Wish I knew which flavor she is bringing.
I'm a sure enough Dallas native who spent a good part of my life in northern New Mexico, where I learned the arts of spinning, weaving, and dyeing. Combining those skills with my long time love, knitting, is what I do best these days.
