New Spool Rack and Spinning Wheel

Today I had fun at the local weaver's guild used equipment sale. I picked up a spool rack that my spouse wanted for warping his loom and also a little double drive spinning wheel that needs just a little bit of work to be a nice wheel. It's such a pretty wheel.
I also picked up some pearl cotton and various little odds and ends such as orifice hooks, sleighing hooks and such.

Sterling Silver Ear Wires

Just got out my jig and wire whacker and made up some sterling silver ear wires using half hard 20 gauge wire that I've had for over a decade. They're all nice and de-burred and hardened. Now I just have to made something with them.

New Pretty Pansies

I'm a real sucker for pansies, and they do so well here.
Here's a couple of new ones I couldn't resist. I may collect the seeds from these and see what they produce next year. When I've done this in the past, the results have been interesting and quite unpredictable.
