Today was my family’s reunion at Spring Mill State Park.  Scott and I drove down early to get in some time at the village before the gathering began and while it was still cool.


I grew up very close to Spring Mill and it will always be a favorite place for me to visit.  I love this place.  I love the feel, smell, sights, sounds, just all of it.

Scott has been working hard lately at his very physical job and with trying to get the next graphic novel ready for printing.  His opportunity to just do art for art’s sake comes less and less these days, and I wanted him to have the chance to just draw.

And this is the angle he chose.  You can see why.  It is a beautiful old mill, the stream running next to us sang merrily and the shade felt wonderful.


Lots of people stopped by to see what he was doing and Scott enjoyed talking with them all.  We were there a total of 3 hours.


Most of the time I sat and spun, but there was a fiber arts event going on there, so when it got started, I put my shoes back on and trotted over to check it and other things out.  I’ll have to show these to you tomorrow because I took a ton of pictures and I’m too tired this evening to get them all sorted and the ones I want to use processed.


Finally, an accurate color of what I am spinning.  It says it is Raspberry, but I think it looks more like a very ripe watermelon.  The silk in it is undyed and was sparkling in the sunlight as I spun.

I haven’t been this relaxed in a long time.
