Yipee!! They are finally here! My long lost swift and winder have finally completed their journey from distant lands to me. I've already been playing with them (and so has Fancy -- the kitten)! Thank you Booga P -- I love them! And thank you to the guys at ThreadBear -- the swift & winder were worth the wait! Gotta go play with my new toys some more, but tomorrow I will have pictures of my first adventure in dyeing fibers.
