I want my readers to know how much I appreciate you - so I will be giving away these Autumn colored Millefiori lamp-work glass beads made in Milan, Italy, topped with a Carnelian, with sterling silver daisy spacer and ear wire. I will send anywhere in the world. I'm all for making things easy. Just leave a comment for 1 entry. Tell me if you're a follower, you get two entries. If you post a link on your blog - three entries. :-) If you don't wear earrings, I will change these to stitch markers for you if you like. Or you can hang them on a silver chain to make two necklaces. DEADLINE: Sunday October 11th, I will announce the winner on Monday the 12th. Good luck!
I have two spinning wheels. One older one, which I do love, it's handmade of solid cherry wood. Dayle brought it out the other day for me to oil - I used coconut oil and it looks and smells so nice! :-) I was told by the person I got it from that it was made by hand in New England. I wish I knew the name of the person who made it and more of it's story!
Cherrywood is really glorious.. don't you think?
There needs to be one repair on it, the "Drive Band Tension Adjustment Screw" has been a bit stripped out. I have no idea how I can get it fixed. Ideas?
Our son Shawn and his family got a new puppy, so they invited us over for dinner yesterday to visit and see the new baby. How many people can you get on one sofa? 6? Michael was playing a game and our little grandsons were watching intently.
Introducing "Shadow" - a black German Shepherd. She joins Schatzie and Meeka. I held her and she cuddled with me and stuck her little nose around my neck and I was smitten.
Kristi found the alpaca roving that I bought last year or so, I look forward to spinning it up.
I got a large batch of gray alpaca roving and a nice dark chocolate brown/black one too.
Can you believe that we are having another sunny day? It's 75 deg. out, too. What is with the weather? This is very unusual. I'm starting to think that Oregon is the new California. :-)
I am going to sell my Kromski Polonaise spinning wheel. Anyone interested? They retail for $800 but I'm selling mine for $500. This is what it looks like, but this is the Kromski professional photo, not mine.
OK.. I did swim on Friday and I'm heading off soon today. What are you up to this week? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
