Finally Back

Posted on May 14, 2011 by Furls Business Academy | 2 Comments

The past few weeks have been really hectic with two family deaths and preparing for an enormous move this summer, but I’m back on my feet (for now :D) and making more spoons. Believe it or not, this post isn’t actually going to be about spoons because I’m waiting for my camera battery to charge before I take any pictures of the five that I did this week. I’m finally getting to a good working pace and I chopped a whole bunch of really good blanks this weekend.

In other news, I’m really happy with what’s been happening on etsy lately. I’ve made it to the front page several times this week because of the awesome new group I joined called Beautiful Home. It’s a wonderful little team focused on professional quality home decor and I absolutely love it. Here’s to more views :D

In other other news, I’ve been marathoning some crochet hooks recently (as well as spoons) so pictures?

Yes. I recently ordered some very nice native Texas woods and gave them a spin. Most of them turn excellently and I’ve recently started stropping all my tools, so woodturning has definitely become more enjoyable.

I’m pretty sure most of these are going to make it to Furls, but at least one is going to be gifted to my girlfriend. The one above, made out of Texas Ebony, is definitely one of my favorites and I find it nicer to turn than Nigerian or Malagasy Ebony because it is just not as brittle.

They are all about 5.5” in length of varying hook sizes and, I think, they feel wonderful in the hand. They’ve all been sanded down to a silky smoothness and been finished with organic, handsafe, and baby safe beeswax. Anyway, more pics to come and esp more pics of spoons to come. Hooks here

OH AND A PICTURE OF ONE THAT I TURNED LAST WEEK AND THAT I SOLD TO A WONDERFUL CROCHETER SOMEWHERE. The wood is pecan and it’s 5” long.

If I were a Tenaege Mutant Ninja Turtle, now I’d say “Kowabunga, dude!”

Hi again i love this, my daughter bohugt yarn for my mom, for baby blankets, with this pattern how many chains would you do, i don’t want it to shrink up while crocheting, and what do you think this would look good in the multi color baby yarn or with the changing colors, mom wants to know lol, by shrinking i mean i measured my son’s with the yarn on the back of my couch and it came out much smaller, like is mentioned before i only did an afghan years ago and my mom showed me thank you Diane
