Description

My friend the 'spinner'

This lady, Chan Brown, has been attending the Hull War Veterans weekend for several years. You can see one of my previous photos on the shelf behind her. She spins yarn from all sorts of animals. The bear she is holding was commissioned by a lady from a local village using the hair of her Labrador Retriever (I think!!) It is even quite poignant now because the dog had died recently, and the lady was coming to the show to collect the bear over the weekend. I took this picture and a couple of others in to Chan on the Sunday morning and the lady for the bear had not yet been so Chan said she would give her one of the pictures along with the bear. Wish I could have stayed all day to get them both together!! The yarn on the spinning wheel at the moment has been brushed from a Border Collie
