A Pink Lemon Twister

I got something in the mail Wednesday evening that was made especially for me!

It's a Midi weight Bossie Spindle from Jonathan and Sheila Bosworth! The whorl is Pink Ivory and the shaft is Pau Amarillo (Yellowheart) so yes, it's actually a Pink Lemon Twister! The whorl is not photographing quite as pink as it really is because it's overcast and the camera wanted to use the flash (without flash, you couldn't really see anything). I just love the look of it and have wanted a Pink Ivory spindle ever since I found out about the wood. Of course, being a Bossie, it spins beautifully and quickly spun up the little puff of fiber Sheila always includes with a spindle. I will have to go stash diving later for something it can spin - I think there's a Merino?Angora/Silk blend up there somewhere that might be just yummy on it.
Thanks for the good wishes for Caleb's birthday! He had a great one and he's just as excited about Christmas next week! Finn has asked to help with the blogging next week, so we'll see what he has in mind. Have a great weekend!

I'm not a spinner, but even I can see how pretty that is! Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas!

Wow, that is nice! DH has a mini-lathe, and tries to make things on it, but he's still learning. He made a rattle out of pink ivory, and it's HARD wood...very hard to work with (but he IS a beginner). Pretty, though.

Are custom made things _fun_?
