Seven Egrets and two Delights will be coming to the Store on Thursday, May 5th at 3 p.m. Pacific Time. Preview pictures will be posted here by Tuesday late afternoon. The spindles will appear in the Store available to buy at the designated time with Add to Cart buttons.
Larks will be added to the Store by next Tuesday, the 10th – time to be announced after they’ve been made.
After dropping a 14 pound cast iron vise on his big toe only to turn around the next day and have another heavy tool fall on the other foot Ed knew he needed a break from the intense spindle making schedule that he’d been under for months. He spent a couple of days cleaning and reorganizing the shop, cutting tree limbs into manageable sizes before coating the fresh cut ends with wax.
All this sawdust will help keep down weeds in the yet to be planted garden. (There was lots more by the time he was finished.)He also painted the ceiling of the back porch. Today he’s back in the shop making Larks.
Meanwhile, the Aurora Colony Handspinners‘ guild held their annual Spring Tea Spinning Day last Thursday.
Judith MacKenzie shared some of her wisdom and textiles that she’s collected over the years.The guild also hosted a weekend of workshops all taught by Judith. Wanda was too busy absorbing information and spinning to take pictures in the plying workshop that she took.
Happy May days everyone! Grab a spindle, go for a walk.
