All good things...

Alas the time has come for me to hang up my saw.
New additions to my family and other reasons
thanks all who have visited and ordered in the past.
but as someone once said
All good things must come to an End

Shuttles and other things

Well I was working away on my brand new buffing wheel (from Christmas) and was thinking wow this is a nice way to polish metal it makes it so shiny and nice and smooth. This got me to thinking. New product line or better shuttles smooth like baby bums. As I have done a few Pendants and Brass Fiber tags not a long stretch from a shuttle why not make a Bracelet. Stretch/Shuttle yeah I know bad pun but it worked nicely.

Absent Friends

I am back It has been awhile and I figure I should stop sit down and write something on this blog as my last post was way back in Oct sorry for you all that keep hoping to see something new.
I have been busy with life lol however that does not mean that I have stopped making shuttles on the contrary I have been making some new ones for my dear motherinlaw over at hankering for yarn for x-mas she was delighted to get it.
If you want to see it she has a wonderful pic
I have also been helping my DW (darling wife) with some neat fiber tags.

I have been working on a few Ideas

It has been a while but I figure somethings are worth the wait
I have been playing with a few ideas some good some bad but I had said that I would share
some of them with you
first thanks to Marilyn getting me thinking about ways that I could do more artistic works on the shuttles she had asked me to do a spider as we all know they are the insect weavers and developing on that idea she asked for a web to be part of it . I thought hmmm yes a spider is no problem but a web with that would be interesting wait a sec Marilyn had already asked about painting on the shuttles and that worked nicely why not engrave and paint the web white.

Ok it is now being tested

Noreen was thrilled to see the newest shuttle improvement.
I drilled a couple of holes in the "hands" of the shuttle and then put a bit of blue paint and varnished a couple of times. it turned out wonderfully so what do you think.

Thank you all for sharing your thoughts.

Wonderfull Idea

A very nice reader wrote me a wonderful e-mail just the other day and described to me a shuttle she has and she very much likes to use. It had a single stone mounted on one side and double mounted onto the other this got me to thinking mounting stones is not something that I could feel comfortable with at this time but ... perhaps something similar so what I was thinking was use my pin vice with a larger pin and only half punch thru the shuttle dab of paint and some varnish on top polish and smooth stay tuned I will post some pictures once I have done a prototype let me know what you think. Thank you Marilyn
