Ed’s not only a skilled woodworker.
The other day while I was in the office doing bookwork in preparation for filing taxes Ed took it on himself to make the bags for the walnut Great Wheel. His brain rarely turns off; he constantly thinks of ways to improve something. It was his idea to use tarps to make the wheel bags to carry the first wheels in. Then someone suggested buying painters’ canvas at Lowes. Bingo.
How nonchalantly he sews!
Sewing the wheel and table bags was a fun diversion for Ed, I’ll sew the bags for the heads and legs as this coming week.
Earlier this week we got a call from one of Ed’s aunts; she’s flying out here on Tuesday for a visit with us, Ed’s dad and great aunt. We’re looking forward to seeing her though it means work will be put on hold a couple of days. Saturday, the 11th we’ll be at the Fiber Fair in Oregon City. Spindles being made are designated for the Fair. We’d like to post more spindles the following week.
