I Love My Grandma

So I had a phone conversation with my grandmother a few weeks ago which revealed that she had a drumcarder and some wool stashed away on the family farm.  With the help of my grandfather and my mom they searched it out and now I have it!



It even came with a little doffer painted to match.  I'm not sure what brand the drumcarder is or how old it is, but I'm pretty excited to have one.  I cleaned it up & of course I had to try it right away.  I blended together about 2oz. of fibre scraps and this is what I came up with!!


I have the feeling this is going to be lots of fun...and may also result in some new offerings through my etsy shop!  Grandma also had two garbage bags full of natural undyed carded wool.  We'll see what kind of adventure I can have with that!!

All I can say right now is I Love My Grandma!!

    But the carding cloth almost looks brand new!
