I have such great friends!

I never make a big deal of my birthday. It's not like I dread it, but I've never been one to go on about me-me-me (except for this blog, I guess). Hubby's the same, and so while we let the kids know that we love them and that they're special to us, we don't make a big deal of their birthdays either. As my sister says, "one day, they're grow up and realize that they're not the little princes and princesses their parents make them out to be." ;)

My sweet friend Michelle tells me that she and her family aren't big birthday celebrators either, but that didn't stop her from sending me a very cool birthday gift!
Yes, it is a drop spindle! I am SO psyched. I just love fibre (in yarn and fabric) so it was only a matter of time before I want to try making my own of both, and I already bought a loom. Granted, I need to take a lesson now...and maybe buy carders or combs and a niddy-noddy and...oh, I can hear hubby groaning already. LOL!

Thank you, Michelle!! I do appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity!

What new hobby are you planning on undertaking soon?
