New Friends

We had a visitor yesterday. It's a seldom occurrance and a wonderful treat. This is the amazing Janel Laidman, the editor of Spindlicity. She is quite a woman! Janel is a handspinner, colorist....check out Chameleon Colorworks, editor, wife, keeper of her own blog....The Bee Bonnet Report and a very enjoyable guest!!
She came to interview us for the upcoming magazine.....*gosh, gee...see me kick the dirt* :)....

She took pictures of our work. She is.... ofcourse going to feature our Don't Drop Spindles as well as orifice hooks and buttons..and, and.....It's quite exciting!!
Here are two of the new Don't Drop Spindles that Michael just rolled out his sleeve. They are so beautiful....Fun to look at & Fun to use!! True works of art!!

Our apples are ready for harvesting and it was the perfect time to make a nice apple crisp to share with our new friend. We shared a few hours together and got to know each other. It was great fun!!

We are gearing up to do the Stitches East show in November. I am really looking forward to going to this show. But it makes us Very Busy, Busy......sometimes working at home, we just keep going......This enjoyable Sunday afternoon with Janel was just what the Dr. ordered!! Thanks Janel ;)

OOOOOOOHHHHHHH, AHHHHHHHHHH, and the glass is pretty, too. :o) tee hee. Michael, you are certainly pulling it out of your sleeve, dear one. So creative and the don't drop spindles are true works of art and I see that they are very practical, as well. Perfect for the Princess and the Pea.

How nice to have Janel visit and how fitting that you were interviewed for Spindlicity. Everyone needs to get their hands on your work because once they do...loogout.

I love that you got all of those wonderful goodies at OFFFFFFF...the Ball Jars are fabulous. Hooray!

Yes Ma'am, Stitches East, here we come!

What incredible spindles! Wow. They are gorgeous. So, uhh, how do you keep them from breaking? (I'm very klutzy)

They are actually much stronger than they look!! Borosilicate is wonderous!!

The don't drop spindles are beautiful! I could sneak one onto the Christmas tree as a special ornament without the spouse knowing what it is! :-)
