In the passed six weeks, I've made more than eighty spindles, three dozen mini spindles and six lazy kates.

I have stolen some time with friends who seem to think I need a break every once in a while. And married off my oldest original (pre-remarriage) daughter.

Kait and Jordan--hitched!

Lost the last of my grandparents. Celebrated twelve years of marriage. Learned something about my stepfather. Registered my twins for fifth grade. Won a couple of blue ribbons in the county fair. Learned a little about weaving so I could help my youngest son learn how to weave. Listened to a whole lot of TV I didn't actually watch (the announcers on Ninja Warriors sound like they're swearing?) Been asked out for a drink by my ex-husband (does that sound as weird as it was?).

I have not cleaned my house, sorted laundry, straightened up my workshop or cleared off my diningroom table.

where's the beef?

Lazy Kates are back in stock!

You've asked for them so I took a break from painting and made some up. I'm now offering a couple of options...stain and extra bobbins.
