OMG!!! My distaff arrived today from Alden - oh, WOW. It's just - WOW.

Looks like cherry wood; the picture shows 2 levels of curves (don't know how else to describe it) - mine has *3*. Gorgeous, as all of Alden's stuff is, the wood is smoother than a baby's butt, it's just - WOW. Steph even tied a red and a white ribbon to the top of it for me. *g*

Alden calls this his "fairy godmother" distaff - I can see why. It resembles a magic wand...and have I mentioned it's beautiful????

Pics later, when I get home and can use the camera (I don't know how to get the pics Off of my Phone and onto the 'puter, or I'd do that).

Wow, oh wow, oh wow! Now, to get J to make me a stand for it (I would get Alden to do it, but....his distaff stands are $200. His floor distaffs (distaves?) are $300...this was $90. Much more affordable!) so I can set it behind my lovely Saxony and learn to spin flax!
