Won’t comment on each piece, can’t type that well. Let me say here, they are all super! Original, artistic and masterfully executed. You should have a great future.

Randolph – In reference to the yarn swift, my wife works in a yarn shop which had a similar swift made by someone up in New England. I had also seen several other type on the internet. I am told that the Shaker’s used some of these which is one of the reasons I made mine of Cherry. So far it has worked well. Thanks for the comment.
