but I love it so much
I couldn't bear to part with it
I'm sorry.
It has a lovely spin

I set up my photo shoot area but still need to work on quality...the backdrop is the same in each of these pics but all are different colors. Part of that is from my playing with editing software but they should all be the same if I did the same edits, right? Wugh.

New stuff coming

I worked on some new spindles (including a couple with hand-turned shafts!) today but ran out of heat before I was able to finish. I'll have a propane refill this weekend and should have some listed by Monday.

I've also been working on a light box set up so I have someplace other than my rumpled bed to take pictures. Hopefully, that will be functional in time for the new listings.

2/13 Update: It's not a secret anymore...
go check out Copperpot's Blog!

I noticed she doesn't seem to have
a link to her shop on the blog--go drool

This was for a friend. She asked for a special Valentine design.
I'm not sure whether it was supposed to be a secret
so I won't mention who, or what it's for.
