I bought a Wing normandy style wheel for $20 on Trademe about a year ago, but it needs a lot of work so it's not been used. This weekend I picked up another wheel; a Thompson Double Drive wheel. I haven't tried her yet, but she's beautiful! I originally organised it for a friend, but she was offered a Wing upright for half the price which is great for her. I still went ahead with this wheel since I do need a second working wheel to teach the boys on. She has 10 bobbins, a lazy kate and also a second whorl for thicker yarns.

We have the final quote for the garage too, now to get things started on getting the money and sorting the concrete pad with EQC; I'll be ringing them tomorrow, wish me luck.
I've been sewing too, I now have 4 new t-shirts
