 A 5" x 7" Gelli plate I got on Monday being used to flatten some gold braid : D. A mug cut I just finished fussy cutting (cutting mat just put away). A small cluster of Distress Markers and a Christmas ball which will be two domes. A very mad max Christmas (thunder domes)? lol.

I also got my Great Wheel Monday. I'm still working out the kinks of getting the wheel to spin true so the drive band doesn't fall off. And it's a MONSTER, at least when it's in my living room/lounge. The whole thing is about 6 feet long, the wheel is about 48 inches. I can't get a picture of the whole thing yet because the chairs I had to move to put it in are still in the way lol.

It was built in 1865. I love the little details at the ends of the bench. The leg on the right is a piano. from the 1960s.  The leg on the left is a chrome shelving unit. My furniture is eclectic : D.

The wheel hub. Astounding light, maybe about 5 pounds.I swear the bench and legs are made of locust wood (some heavy heavy wood).

The business end of a Great Wheel. And now you can see how Sleeping Beauty could prick her finger. That is a stack of 78's on the piano which I play on my tabletop Victrola. I'm a bit of a Luddite, and I like to have some activities that operate without electricity as well : D. Can you tell I've had a lot of experience with power outages?

Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for more crafty desks.
