This past weekend Mr. Man was busy per usual. He made yet another kitchen island for our downstairs kitchen. We will be making this (small) kitchen our dyeing kitchen. The best thing about this island is that he made it ALL out of scrap wood from our house and our neighbors house! We didn't have to buy a thing for him to make it AND we used up stuff that was just laying around AND we got more shelf space! Turned out pretty good, don't ya think?
And of course he has been working on yarn bowls. Here's some he made that were almost ready to go in the kiln. The new kiln holds A LOT of yarn bowls!
Here's the new kiln. We have actually had it for over a year probably but now we finally had a place to put it and got it all wired up and ready to go! We had about 7 of those bowls explode during the first firing - it takes a little time to learn a new kiln but the remainder have all been glazed and are up on the website. I'm really glad it is outside because the other one is inside and it makes the house about 120 degrees when it is running!
On Sunday I snapped this picture of a butterfly on our ginourmous thistle bush that we have out on the side of the house. Cool, eh?
