cotton spinnin…

my tahkli’s arrived and i spent the weekend before last spinning cotton collected from beside the A2 highway out past dalby [qld] and baby camel roving.

it was an awesome weekend in the hills behind nimbin, peaceful serene, magical and productive! it was not hard to rise with the sun and sit on the verandah spinning watching the day unfold.

i started out attempting to roll cotton poonies to spin from but ended up preferring to spin straight from the boll. the cotton is quite long stapled and silky – it is lovely.

it was hard not to come home with some new pottery bowls to support my tahklis 🙂
