Happy New Year!

Best wishes for a happy, healthy 2016 to all.  Our day started off nicely with a walk in the sunshine.  We have new desert landscaping in front of our condo development (drought, ya know; finally getting rid of some grass which is awesome.)  I love the baby palm trees (not really babies, probably, but I don't know the variety.)

I spent the last few minutes collecting fiber to spin for my 2016 Spin the Bin with a group on Ravelry.  I'm challenging myself a bit this year; nothing like what some people do, however.  I've missed spinning and don't think I've touched a wheel since last summer.  Here are the fibers I selected:

My Lendrum is all cleaned up and is sporting one of her new snazzy bobbins.  My bin is full and I'm going to start with one of my oldest fibers, which is Corriedale that I probably bought in 2008 right after I took a lesson on the drop spindle.

I hope your year brings you everything you wish for!
