How cute!!!

I have the BEST story for you!

I met-up with my spinning "Meet-up" group a few weeks ago and met the nicest young couple. And what a spinning story they had!

Rob and Lauren live together... They both like to make things... Lauren likes spinning fiber into yarn... So, Rob decided to make her a spinning wheel for Christmas! He started in October, using scrap wood they had in their basement woodworking shop.

He had never seen a working wheel, he just understood the concepts. (He's an engineer, if memory serves me right). So he went to work at night. He said he was doing the laundry! Every night. And, each night, so Lauren would not see the work in progress, he dis-assembled the wheel and hid all the pieces.

He did this for two and a half months. Lauren couldn't figure out what he was doing, and was getting very annoyed at his lack of involvement with anything except the laundry!

Lauren's parents were helping Rob: her mom hand painted a beautiful scene on the actual wheel, her dad helped with tools.

So when Lauren complained about Rob to her parents, her mom would say "yes, but maybe Rob is busy... He's such a nice guy...". And Lauren just got more annoyed at the lack of sympathy.

Rob finally decided he better give her the Christmas present in the first week of December before she became REALLY aggravated!

And won her heart again... mine too with this great gift!
