Spinning yarn better than being spun out

oh, I kill me with the title...LOL

Lookie what I got treated to at our Canada Day Celebration - spinnnnnnning on a drop-spindle!! This lady was very practiced at it and made it look so easy...I must get out my supplies that Rebecca so kindly RAOK'd me with and yes,....I'll admit, I've been chicken to try still. What a dolt I am hey?
