In one week! First, take one sheep.
1877

1885 Margaret Evans and her spinning wheel. Wales

1870-1900 Spinning in Palestine

1860s Spinning in Wales

1913 Spinning in Ireland (it's amazing we don't get dizzy and fall down!)

Spinning in Frisia! (It's a very long stretch of, well, beach along the top bit of Germany. They wear nifty traditional costumes there.)

1890s Spinning in France!

1910s Spinning in Sweden!

1890 More spinning in Ireland! This time in Galway!

QVic! Spinning! That's why she always had that expression on her face! She was dizzy!

I like the picture of the little girl with her sheep. The traditional costumes are pretty nifty. Darlene
