On a less stressful note I finally stained Ponyo! So I love my spinning wheel even when it makes me mad and squeaks. I feel like I am constantly oiling it. Which poses a whole new problem. So I bought an unfinished wheel because it was like 200 dollars less and then I started noticing something...
Yup those right there are oil stains. No matter how careful I was being with the oil on the joints it just dripped everywhere. Those stains were what finally made me stain it. I loved the original color of the wood but I needed something to protect the wood from the oil and sometimes even the dye from fiber.
So a can of wood finish later Ponyo had a whole new look. (Note: If you do this you can get one of the tiny cans because I barely used any of this.)
Its just a little darker in real life and has this nice hint of like a redish color. It is just so gorgeous and it hides all of those oil spots! And now the oil just wipes off!
So now I am finally back to spinning which is great! I really missed it. I am working on one of my braids I bought before the Tour. I have named it Berty Botts Ever Flavor Beans. I finished the first 2 ounces already and just started spinning the next half. I hope you guys are having a great week!
