and whatever wild life wanders by
I want to spend the day with Clara. There is always so much to learn.
I am always amazed when I see this. I can't wrap my mind around what is happening. It all seems like magic or a miracle happening right before my eyes. Clara has such beautiful strong hands. What beautiful creations she makes. I too would love to meet her. She is an inspiration.
I SO loved this! Thanks so much for sharing it.
I love this post and link! Spinning by look and feel. I love her descriptors- stretch for drafting, bumps, "right here the wool cries". I wish I could spend a day with her too!
Wow. Thanks for sharing.
it's hard to imagine the wool crying in *her* hands. Such a gentle, but self-assured, way about her. Just beautiful. Thank you. :)
What a blessing, Cyndy - you have fed my soul this day.
What a great video - I love watching her hands - thanks for sharing! Melody
What a lovely video. I would like to sit at her feet and just watch. (Although she would probably put me to work!)
