I'm so very happy about the presidential election! Obama's speech last night was perfect, as always. I wish our senate race was final and favoring the other direction, though.
Look what came today!! Two great things in 24 hours that I've been waiting for forever - it's a little overwhelming! The red inlay is darker in person, as is the wood. It's a cloudy day and the flash really brightened things up.
When people see this picture they think the flowers are painted, but they're real flowers laid in resin:
Look at the grain in that wood!! Honestly, I can't believe this is mine. I've done a little spinning on it and it's very different from the Lendrum and it's going to take some getting used to. It's going to be great, though, I'm so excited! The first thing I spun was almost invisibly fine, so I envision some lace projects coming up!!
Here's a spinning project I just finished... it's Lisa's superwash merino roving in Petroglyph. Came out a little thicker than fingering weight. This roving was WONDERFUL to spin!!
