I'd love to sit and sip a cup of chamomile tea with you Cyndy while watching you spin that roving. Aren't seed catalogues lovely to browse through this time of year? Quiet little books of encouragement . . .

Hi Dawn-

Have you ever had fresh chamomile tea? Its like drinking a basket of apples (It makes a wonderful hair rinse too.) I grow the German Chamomile/ Matricaria recutita.. a tall annual, for the tea but Roman Chamomile/ Chamaemelum nobile is a low-growing perennial..and I encourage that to fill in as ground cover.

And the catalogues are wonderful...so many choices...

Love the "c's" I've enjoyed spinning camel; it looks great with my fawn angora!

cyndy said...

Hi Leslie,
This will be my first time spinning camel...and I'll just bet it looks great (and feels wonderful) with your fawn angora--(for that matter...what wouldn't! Fawn angora would vastly improve any fiber in my humble opinion!

Spinning is very Calming. Which you will need since it seems you are in a Corundrum looking thru all those Catalogues. Just remember there will be a Crisis if you don't get the seed order done. Consider the Consequences! I love this Craziness!!!!

Love the "C"'s!

Hi Judy- Hi Spinner Gal-

A Crisis of Colossal Calculations!!
I need to Collaborate with my Colleagues and Contemplate the seed Collection at hand, before I Comission a Comercial seed Company!

Ever think of how many plant names begin with C??

Your teapot and chamomile look very inviting. Very clever 'C''s, & nice to follow along. The German Chamomile is my favorite, it is what I grow on the island--just the smell alone can sooth the soul & soles. Yes, apples, "a basket of apples"! Love that description.
