Sweet Abigail and Eleanor too...
Today is the first true warm day we have had this spring! Of course I was torn with wanting to work in the garden and put Abigail together. Yes, yes she arrived a couple of days ago and I have been waxing her for the last two days. Not much to guess on what won out.. Abigail of course! :D
I remembered to take pictures as I progressed with her assembly to share ...
Eeek! What was I thinking?
So far so good, Abigail is now upright with her legs attached and treadles partially on... (OK, so I put the treadles on backwards first try; second try I forgot to make sure they were seated below the table base... this is growing pains, for me and her)!!!
Wheel is on and treadles are positioned correctly but still not attached
Treadles are now attached to the crank and those little stick looking things (give me a break, the names for spinning wheel parts are still living in the 17th century I got lost after treadles) LOL!!!
... still an awful lot of pieces left !&#%!!?
And finally Abigail has all the little bits and bobs that were left on the floor securely attached and in the correct places, even the Lazy Kate (see, I told you the names of the parts of a spinning wheel still reside in the 17th century) :D
Not long after Abigail was finished Eleanor arrived from my favorite brown truck!!!
She should be easy though, she came with her finish on and put together, all I have to do is add her handle and a couple of other bits and she should be ready to go, pictures soon!
Now for the disaster parts of the last week... you know about my nice neat new studio?
*sigh* It gets more scary as you go further into my studio...
I guess it couldn't be helped what with the studio de-stash going on... I had to get things out to photograph and to put up in my Etsy shop... yes, yes I have fallen way behind on uploading things but what's a girl to do? Abigail was calling after all!!! lol
Once the de-stash sale is over there will be new studio pics, oh and of course you simply must meet Eleanor! Squeal... now there is some incentive for clearing out this mess!
As always, Hugs and thanks for popping by for a visit!
