As promised, here are my latest  ©Whirly Girls - OOAK - Russian Lace Support Spindles by ©Dream Spinner Creations-2013.  These first nine offerings, are currently available in my ETSY shop.  I wanted something with a definitely more feminine flair to them than I see offered anywhere else. The gentle curves on these ladies just make them more comfortable in a Spinner's hands whether loaded with Lace singles or empty & on display in a Spindle collection.

I leave the different wood stocks to "tell" me how to turn & design them on my lathe - So each one is definitely OOAK & simply cannot be reproduced exactly. Please READ their listings carefully to make sure the Spindle you might be interested in is still available. I'll annotate & update this posting for Spindles are sold & are no longer available.

Every Spindle's hand-turned on my Jet 1014 mini-lathe, with custom hand-carved detailing & finished with multi-grit sandings & hand-rubbed with a secret hot Carnauba wax process & finally sealed in multiple coats of Wood Turner's C.A. for extra strength & durability.

They've all been personally test-spun & hand-balanced for excellent spinability! Perfect for the Russian Lace or fine gauged Spinner on your list. They hold approximately 325-400 yds. of lace singles, at least they do for me. : } Referring to the photo above - here are the Spindles & their vital statistics.

A. "Slenderella" - OOAK - Is 12" long x .75 oz. Hand-turned in oak hardwood - Orenburg Russian Lace Support Spindle spins beautifully & faster as your yarn cop builds on.

B. "Simplicity" - OOAK - Is 7/8th oz. x 12" long. Hand-turned oak hardwood. Orenburg Russian Lace Spindle with a simple design & shape & is an excellent fast Spinner!

C. "La Bomba" - OOAK - For those wanting a more feminine curved Spindle - is 12.5" long x .75 oz.

D. "Mega-Bomba" - OOAK - This one's a monster - but she spins like CRAZY & holds a LOT of lace yarnage! 1.25 oz. x 15" long - Perfect for a Beginner Lace Spinner! Hand-carved & lathe turned in Oak hardwood.

E. "Le Questa" - OOAK - Is 7/8th oz. x 13" long - Hand-carved & turned in oak hardwood, in a more common Russian Orenburg Lace Spindle design & style in a median weight & length. Just perfect for a Beginner Lace Spinner!

F. "Imperfecta" - OOAK - This one just makes me smile & is 13" long x 7/8ths oz. She's made in aged oak & has an obvious "fault" in her that no self-respecting Turner would probably have used - but sure enough - she Spins like a TOP! Simple in her design - she spins so well, I almost hate to give her up for sale! Lovely  Spindle!

G. "Lady Finger" - OOAK - Ornately turned with deliberately feminine curves - is .50 oz. x 12.5" long. Pretty to look at & lovely to spin! Hand-Turned in lt. oak - A lovely ornate Russian Lace Spindle to add to your collection!

H. "Delica" - OOAK -Weighing in at .75 oz. x 12" long - OOAK - Lovely oak hardwood Orenburg Russian Lace Supported Spindle.

I. "Gravitas" - This one just swirled off my lathe! A truly ornately turned beauty in a lovely oak hardwood. She is 12/5" long x 5/8th oz. Truly a lovely addition to any Spinner's collection!

Will soon post several new Spinner's Orifice Loop Threaders with a WPI {wraps per inch} gauge built into the handle - or not... : } Wait till you see the new ones in Purple Heart wood!

Which Card Are You?

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
