I Think I'm Addicted

To making spindles that is. If you want to learn to spin, I can hook you up with a cheap yet highly functional spindle (Mine usually cost less than 5 bucks to make, some less than 3).

So, here are the two newest:

The top one is a piece of wood that I covered with fabric and sealed/hardened with Modge Podge. The pottom one is a pendant that I drilled a hole in the center and used the hole that one would hang it from as the spot to place my notch (aides in the spinning process).
I already have a neat idea for a couple more spindles and am going to have to try em out.
In other news the tree guys came today and cut down the apple tree and a couple of smallish maple trees that were pressing on the garage. It was pretty painless but I am a little sad about the apple tree. I am pretty sure it was as old as the house. It really did need to come down though as it was rotted out in a pretty serious way. Electrician coming back tomorrow to install new vent fan in the kitchen.
Next we get the house appraised (buyer's expense not ours - well actually it probably is coming out of our pockets as we have agreed to pay their closing costs). Then we are really done except for the sigining of closing documents, oh and that whole packing and moving thing...I'll start packing soon...

the pendant spindle is really pretty! Nice work!
We will be cutting down the biggest, and oldest cherry tree. I am sad to see it go too.

Those are so pretty! I would love to but I don't think I can take up one more thing ... LOL

Yeah for the trees, I'm so glad it wasn't as expensive as first thought! I can't wait for you guys to have no more stress with this whole ordeal!

I'm not much help but I can always be comic relief :).

As for DH and his attitude of cleaning I so agree with you, I keep picking and choosing battles and more often then not I avoid "poking the bear". But man this is getting old!

As for church it was so nice to go and just have people support and be nice to you! I think I needed a uplifting and it was something I just needed.

Hope all is well, we so need to get together ;)
