I've been tagged ~ Thanks Kim ~ New Spindle

Look at this spindle!!!!!!!!!!! Isn't it awesome, it's a Bosworth Spindle and it's a Moosie. Moosie you say? As a matter of fact the whorl was made from a mooses antler that was shed. It looks beautiful.

The picture below you can see that it sort of looks like Ivory. It has a creay color and it is soo smooth!! The shaft is Movado wood. I love it and I have had many complements.
In this picture here I have it laying on some Lincoln Longwool. To me the whorl just seems to glow. What I like is that the whorl is notched and that really makes sinning a joy. No more fiber slippage when spinning now. Saturday I was in Jamba juice waiting for my order and I was spinning. This woman came over and asked me wht I was doing. She was so fascinated by the way the whorl spun and how the fiber went from fluffy to yarn (or string as she called it).

This is my first Tagged so I hope I have done this right lol. So here it goes:

I've Been Tagged!!
Kim at The Misplaced Midwesterner (I met through ITE, has turned out to be a good friend)
Has tagged me with a double tag. I have never done these but here it goes anyway!!
Part #1
These are the rules:.

1) Pick up the nearest book of at least 123 pages.

2) Open the book to page 123.

3) Find the 5th sentence.

4) Post the next 3 sentences.

5) Tag 5 people.

This is the book nearest me, it has 494 pages it’s called The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks. I love reading his books. I have several of them.
"Why on earth was she living in a small town like this? Julie, he thought, belonged in a city, a place of crowded sidewalks and flashing signs, quick insults and snappy comebacks. She was too sharp, too stylish, for a place like this"

Ok, these are the 5 people I tag:

1. Maryanne at ~ I met thought a Christmas Swap what a blast that was.

4. Sarah at Keeping me sane - - She got me twice when we did different swaps that was funy.

5. Debbie at I met here at a swap and what a wonderful person.
