Today’s date!

It’s fascinating how our brains work, and what will is amusing or intriguing to some people but not all.

Ed’s been having a blast letting pieces of wood suggest the form for him to shape into spoons. For months making spoons has been his playtime. He’d made dozens excited to debut them at Oregon Flock & Fiber. Just a couple weeks ago a friend off-handedly asked if he was planning to have a table at the Santa Mouse Holiday Bazaar, an annual bazaar on the 1st Saturday in December at the local high school.

I called the school. Yes there were still a few open tables; an application would be mailed to us. It arrived right before Thanksgiving. A check was written, the form filled out and mailed right away. Yesterday we received email confirmation that we’re in.

Twisted Eddie’s Spoon Thingies (his name!) will debut this Saturday. We’re very excited to finally be able to sell at an in-person venue.

A tiny sampling of all of Ed’s spoons.
No two spoons alike.

Originally we’d planned to take only the 250+ spoons but I know there are bound to be down time when I’ll want to spin. If I’m spinning the odds are people will be curious. Curiosity could lead to spindle sales… I’ve talked Ed into taking Roadrunners as we have an ample supply of them.

Perhaps we need to change our business website to “Spindles and Spoons”

Interesting number combinations of dates amuse me,
Carving unique, twisted spoon amuses Ed.

I never dreamed my life would be entangled with fiber and the tools used to produce fibery items. When I bought a boat shuttle used in weaving 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, and a dozen Great Wheels, until his spindles became so popular that he had to devote his time to making only spindles. 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 a fiddle beside a stream or with good friends brings sweetness to my soul. Sundays are set aside for worshiping God with our small, Scotts Mills Friends Meeting and occasionally riding our bicycles on sunny afternoons.
