Barn Quilt and Spinning Wheel

My niece is visiting from Kansas and helping me finish paint my barn quilt. It is really looking good!

We also went to visit the Old Church Gallery (art gallery and museum) in Floyd, Virginia. Elizabeth is standing by a spinning wheel used by a spinster in our family, Frances Keziah Allen McNeil. She had no children of her own and spun for her husband’s large family who all called her Aunt Fanny. History courtesy of Old Church Gallery and Clara Martin.

Someday, I would love to try my hand at spinning and knit a scarf from my hand-spun yarn.
