I dusted off the ol' lathe a few days ago. Wood dust became an issue after I started turning, but since I didn't have a proper method for keeping it under control, I had to close shop for a while. The recent warm weather gave me an idea: haul that sucker outside! So I did, and I turned a spinning top. Tops are a lot of fun to make, and to play with! I'm hoping to turn several more (weather permitting), and possibly paint or stain them. And hopefully I'll have more to share on this dusty ol' blog. Poor thing has just been sitting here for months...

A few months ago I offered to make a baby blanket for a friend. Being a devoted Whovian, she requested a Tardis. I was really excited to start on such a new and different project, but I had to do a little research first. In my internet searches I stumbled across some wonderful 8-bit character blankets that used granny squares as pixels. I fell in love with such a clever idea and started designing an 8-bit Tardis. I've never made so many granny squares in my life, but my friend's reaction upon seeing the finished blanket was totally worth it.
