Some of you may remember this post about the third lendrum that had made it's way to my home. (yes you read that right...the third one).....and yet, here we are again looking at the 4th folding lendrum.
As much as I loved the folding lendrum in the above link, somehow the temptation of the walnut combined with the wooly winder was just too overwhelming to pass by....so the lovely little maple wheel is now much loved in it's new home and this beautiful walnut lendrum is settling in nicely here in my home. I have to admit, I am LOVING this wooly wonder! (you didn't think I kept all of those lendrums now do you?...that would be over the top sickness..)
Just what is it about Spinning Wheels that attracts us...tempts us? I can remember saying years ago to the woman who corrupted me, "Why the heck do you need more than one spinning wheel?".
Silly girl I was back then...
Over the years, many many wheels have come to play for a little while and then found their way into new homes, but how could I part with the beautiful Cherry Lendrum Production wheel that I lovingly finished myself, or the little Robin with it's beautiful spalted maple wheel...and Yeeesss ladies, this is the year that Norm is going to come knocking on my door! Seven long years I have waited for this wheel that he is making for me.
So, you would think that would be more than enough, wouldn't you? So did I, until I sat down behind the wheel of this baby. Now mind you, this wheel almost came to live here, but that is a sad story for another time perhaps. Marcy being the generous Temptress that she is, allowed a few of us to play house with her incredible wheel made by Alden Amos and all I can say is ..."Oh My"!
I live in a fairly big old farm house........don't you think every room should have it's own wheel?
Hmmmmm...........yep, I admit it... it is truly a sickness.
