A new baby...

Not the people kind of baby, but a neglected Jensen Tina II (my guess from pictures online), that I got for FREE from my good friend at my most favorite LYS. I'm going to use it until I get a wheel of my very own someday, isn't she lovely? Tina's got all her parts, she just needs a proper drive band, and a good dusting. I'm getting the hang of spinning, after this picture was taken, I got into a groove and spun some decent stuff, I can say that spindling really helped because I knew how to draft consistently.

And then Robby woke up from his nap!
