Back on Blog!

I'm back home from a wonderful, relaxing holiday time, and now I'm settling down to the last preparations for the Textile Forum.

The whorls have been fired in the meantime, and they are now safely sitting in a box on my table, waiting to get equipped with a spindle stick each. Using the special "whorl-cookie cutters", that were custom made to my calculated measurements, worked really well. The whorls came out very much alike, they fit the sticks very nicely with their holes, and so I'm quite confident about the whorl part. I snuck back to work yesterday already, spending some time to portion and package the small parcels of wool to give out at the experiment, making sure that everybody gets the same amount of wool to work with.

Now there's the obligatory stack of e-mails to go through - as usual after being away for some days - and the last bit of preparation to make. And very soon it will be time to start writing the lists for packing and gather together all the stuff!

Good to see you back.

This entry has me looking forward to the day when your webstore is up and running. I've been toying with the idea of learning handspinning; maybe I should buy one of your spindles and give it a try!

Cathy, I'll do my very best to get the shop up and running soon - but sometimes I'm wondering why the day can't have 24 hours once a week, just to get everything done...

I quite understand that a shop--even an on-line shop--is a lot of work, and you have many other demands on your time! But I will be happy to see it, when the day arrives.

Good luck with your current experiment.
