Up and running

The PayPal buttons on the Aegean, Kuchulu and Lark pages at Jenkins Woodworking are in place and some sales have come through in good order. Except, I need to poke around more to figure out the Add to Cart/Shopping Cart features. Which means there will be more tweaking today.

Once that’s settled I will turn my attention to remaking the website using different software. Going through this has convinced me that the editing software should be easily accessed from any computer and not tied to software on one beast. So, I’ve been checking out lots of reviews and various options. A couple of very thoughtful readers have offered wonderful suggestions and advise concerning FrontPage – thank you! It is appreciated. I’m comfortable with FP, if it weren’t for the fact that it ties me down to one computer I’d stay with it. The old computer needs to be put out of its misery – it crashed a couple times last night at crucial moments, and again this morning. groan. I’m back on the laptop, which is where I update the blog. I’ll move back to the office as soon as this is finished to work from the main computer, which Ed likes to access in the evenings.

I’ve been spinning step-outs for remaking the Learn to Spin DVD! Amy (Boogie) of Spunky Eclectic  (check out her recipe for spring rolls and cheesecake while you’re there!) sent some fiber a couple weeks ago. The colors popped at me begging to be played with so I striped off 9 grams and had a party.

Love watching the colors change! Spun yarn doesn’t need to be wound onto a spindle in any one fashion but it sure makes for pretty designs when wrapping over 2 and under 1. 🙂

I never dreamed my life would be entangled with fiber and the tools used to produce fibery items. When I bought a boat shuttle Ed looked at it, decided to make a better one and the rest is history. For a decade he made shuttles, crochet hooks, knitting needles, until his spindles became so popular that he had to devote his time to making them, as well as Great Wheels. Free time is spent reading, trying to coax food from the ground, and playing in the creek near our place. I love long walks and camping far from crowds. Playing my fiddle beside a stream or with good friends brings sweetness to my soul. Sundays we try to set aside for worshiping God with our small Quaker meeting.

  1. So nice! Beautiful fiber!
    I gave up on my cotton…just not what I want to spin-d hours and hours on.
    I have a birthday afghan to make and I went to spinning some
    my baa beau, “Wendell”, a local Romney with a beautiful grey coat.!
    fun.
    When you are done with the old computer……give it the baseball bat
    treatment…..not very tidy, but oh…..the therapy! yeow!

  2. I just love how those colours wrap around the spindle like a kaleidoscope! Makes me want to get my spindle out again just to watch some colours make patterns….one day….

  3. Oh my, this is VERY dangerous! Much too easy now to see something I like, KNOW that it is available, and BUY! Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear…. One of those heavy Aegeans is whispering to me….

  4. Ooh, very pretty! I was just thinking of you, as I spun a little on my kuchulu, which now lives in my office for those moments when I need a little sanity 🙂
