By late morning, Bill had the lathe wiring finished
and I was able to turn it on! So exciting!
I had a lot of 'stuff' to find homes for and a lot of cleaning up to do but first I did a bit of playing!
I just put the mess out of my mind and played! Very unlike me but I have waited 6 months to actually use this lathe!I loaded a branch and began turning it and had a wonderful time!
And then the end cracked and the rolling pin I was making is going to have to undergo a transformation into a narrow vase!
(there was a crack on the end of the log and I had hoped it wouldn't be a problem-wrong! Sigh.)
After I had some fun, it was time to get to work! I ended up cleaning it all up and Bill even took the junk away for me! Oh, and he had to do all of the rearranging for me--I have the ideas and he has the brawn--what a great combination!
We have a fancy late-comer, another amaryllis is in bloom!
And right next to it, the hibiscus has put out a bloom!
They look as happy as I am!
