shopping fun

shopping is fun :D
other ladies go and buy shoes, i go and buy spindles
actually i was just wanting a jenkins …. so i went to ravelry and had a look if someone sells one
nope - but i found this little pretty one …

and then i though … well the one i got, from is fantastic, some more of them is a good thing too

there comes more - much much more ….

so i wrote them a mail, asking if they could make me one, and got the above link to their shop - which is alllllllllllllways empty *lol*
but you can look into the sold section, and can see what fantastic spindles they make
and i wrote them my favorite 7 woods, and left them to them, which one to choose for me.
BUT - Dana (he says he got carried away) made 5, which i was supposed to choose 1 *sigh*
now you know thats impossible righ ? *lol*
and after a while i desided to get me the 3 with arrows pointing
