Firstly I would like to apologise to the regular readers of this blog as I have not made a post for over two months. It is and always has been my intention to make a blog entry at
least once a week to keep things fresh and share with you all what I have been up to. I literally haven't turned a thing since the end of February until yesterday. I never really meant to take such a long break but have been busy working(the day job) and putting my spare time into my 'Reef Aquarium' which had been
getting neglected and badly needed a revamp.
The break from turning has however allowed me to look afresh at what I'm doing and hopefully allowed me to move away from some of the subconscious influences of others work. Anyway it felt damn good to be back on the lathe and making those shaving fly!!!
Tomorrow we will be having a stall at my sons preschool 'Spring Fling' event, so I have made several pens and 'Spinney Mushrooms' which always sell well at any event where children are present! I will of course have much more of my usual fare for sale too as well as donating something for the raffle. It was good to get my eye back in making these simple items. Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed for good weather and a wood appreciating, money spending public!
