Just the Cutest Thing

Let me show you something...

No, I haven't bought a new spinning wheel but if I'd seen this for sale, it would have been really, really hard to pass up.  I don't know if it functions but it's the cutest thing I've ever seen and it weighs about an ounce.  Goodness me.

It's actually just passing through.  Evidently there's a little network out there that will get antique wheels from one end of the country to the other.  I believe this one came from Nevada and is heading to Michigan.  A friend of mine brought it here from Iowa and was supposed to meet someone who could take it to Chicago on the next leg.  Unfortunately, that link seems to have fallen through but since I was headed back to the Chicago area this weekend, I said I would take it.  And the person it's going to lives just a few minutes from where I'll be meeting with the LACE group.  Cool, n'est pas?

I feel honored just to have fostered this lovely little thing in my home.  Fair trip, little spinning wheel.
