I spent a couple days last week getting the wood bowls added to the website. We have a lot of different sizes at the moment. They range from larger ones at the $55 price point which are big enough for holding a full ball of yarn down to some mini bowls ($20) which are perfect for holding small items like beads, stitch markers, coins, etc.
We will soon be bringing back some other wood tools we have not had in stock for quite a few years. Jerry had some big logs of walnut and cherry that he hadn’t had time to process. Well we have time now, so he started working on that this week after we returned from a little trip to the Smokies for Mother’s Day weekend. I’ll tell you more about that next post. :-)
My last day in Nashville on Tuesday, we had the windows open and it was about 80 degrees. The grass already needs mowing and the trees are budding out. Today I am in Pittsburgh for the Pittsburgh Creative Arts Festival and this is what it looks like here.
Seriously? What is this Narnia before Aslan returned? Always winter but never Christmas? Yuck. Let me tell you, 28 degrees with gusting wind feels pretty darn cold after 80 degrees. I am praying for some change for the better in the very near future, and lots of patience in the mean time. The bright side is that the venue is very nice and bright, and I don’t have to load and unload the trailer in the elements. The loading dock is inside. I will be going over in a couple hours to do the booth set up.
I have written the pattern for the Honeydew Lace Square, which I think is what I will be calling it BTW, and hope to have it ready within a week. I have finished the first draft and consulted my friend Dee O’Keefe, designer extraordinaire, who was generous enough to help me with some edits. If I get any time this weekend I will be making her suggested revisions. As soon as it is ready I will announce it here, on Facebook and my newsletter.
I took these in the hotel room this morning to try out how it looks against a darker background. I really need to get some pictures that weren’t taken in a hotel room for the pattern at some point. ;-) These really aren’t half bad though.
