Handcrafted with love

It's so nice when your significant other just "gets you". And isn't it sweet when they do something or make something that only you can love. Meaning: it has no value to them other than seeing your happiness. :)

Would you just look at the beautiful lazy kate that my hubby made for me!! It will hold all of my bobbins, one is missing cause it's on my spinning wheel. The only thing I'm gonna add to this is a leather strap on top for carrying. He is working out the best way to add tension to my bobbins for plying. And maybe one day I'll get creative & put some kind of wood burning decoration on there. He is already making plans on a new & improved version, but I love this one & will be perfectly content with it.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

He and the lazy kate are keepers:).

Absolutely beautiful. I would suggest hubby here to make one for me but I'm trying not to recall the table saw war. (he was making a yarn winder for me when that little fiasco took place)

Enjoy and cherish:).

That's beautiful! I thought maybe that bottom, empty space had Sissy's name on it. ;)

Awwww. That's amazing! He's a keeper alright :)

BTW I wandered down the cleaning supply area and saw those plastic cleaning things. Apparently there has been a revolution in dusting that I missed!
