We have a small farm nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. We try to use our farm to help sustain us and our lifestyle as much as possible. We have a flock of chickens, ducks and geese for fresh eggs and meat. We also raise Katahdin sheep for meat and raise Nubian goats to give us milk. We have created a life that we love here on this farm and are so thankful for our Savior, Jesus Christ. Without Him, we are nothing.
Can I spin...? No
Well, the wheel is here and it is beautiful. It went together like a dream, every part was wrapped so nicely. It is made in Poland and it made the trip without a scratch. I had it almost put together by the time Tim got home from work. It treadles so smoothly. I am so happy with it. I attempted to try my hand at spinning, that, however, did not go like a dream. I can see it is going to take a lot of patience and time to accomplish that. I plan to spend the day, teaching myself. Maybe in a year or two, I'll get it. No one ever said it was going to be easy, right? "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." And I am going to need His strength, believe me.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments I have been getting lately. I love hearing from all of you and knowing that I have made some wonderful friends. The Lord has blessed us and our farm so much and without Him, we are nothing. Ok, I'm off to spinning land...
