Happy New Year 2014! ~ to all our friends, vendor buddies, and customers!
Here’s are some new items we’ll have in our booth this Saturday, Jan. 4 at St. Distaff’s Day Spin In (Photos of previous shows can be seen in the Ravelry group by same name).
Here Kitty, kitty, kitty…. Hand-carved SPINNING WHEEL HOOKS left to right are made of Camphor burl, Yew, Walnut, + 2 cats in Curly Maple. The tallest cat made of Yew has especially nice wood grain on the back. The cat duo are made of Wild Olive & Camphor burl, with a wedge of Manzanita between them. All the cats have German glass eyes (on a wire) securely imbedded, giving them each a mischievous expression.
New SHEEP designs for a Diz (what is a Diz tool?) . The gorgeous blond wood is curly Masur Birch. The characteristic flecks & the wavy grain makes the wood shimmer like rumpled satin as it reflects light. Next up: the Sheep DIZ in the lovely Wild Olive, and a freeform Diz in colorful Camphor burl.
Needle felted SHEEP-in-Boots! And….Sheep-in-Socks too (she’ll soon have her hat).
Wild Woolies “Grumbler” & Tumtum. Poor Grumbler doesn’t have it’s fangs yet, but it will by show time! Tumtum needs nothing more; he’s quite full already. I wonder what Wild Woolies feast upon? Whatever it be, it sure contributes to luxurious curls! Wired legs & arm allow for gentle posing so the can stand, sit or tap impatient toes!
