Can You Spin This? The Prequel by Esther Rodgers of JazzTurtle Creations and the Dani Davis/Pumpkinhaus Giveaway Winner!

by The SpinArtiste on May 12, 2013

On one of my trips to Fayetteville, Arkansas, we took the scenic route and ended up at a yard sale where I purchased a box full of scarves.  One of the treasures in that box was:



This item planted an idea in my mind.  What good was hoarding all my little whacky treasures?  I decided to share.  So, I sent this item to Esther Rodgers of JazzTurtle Creations.  Not that spinning fabric would be a challenge for Esther because she is a superstar at the wheel.  Rather the challenge was to do this little family unit from 1979 justice.  And, while things were percolating in Esther’s brain, I went ahead and launched “Can You Spin This?” on Spin Artiste and we’ve had a number of fine entries over the past several months.

But the Fayetteville Family was not forgotten.  And, a few weeks ago when I was in Florida at the Sway Guild Event, I was reunited with the Fayetteville Family in its new form:

And, viola!  Esther aced it!!!  Here are a couple more shots with the yarn being modeled by our newest garden feature, Little Toadie:



Pretty spiffy, huh?  And, I think Little Toadie wears it really well!!


If you want to try “Can You Spin This?”, just shoot me an email at thespinartiste@gmail.com.  I send out five items per month (there is a waiting list of several months, so please be patient).  There is no charge, but if you’d like to send something in for distribution, that is more than welcome!


The giveaway winner of the custom dreads by Dani Davis of Pumpkinhaus is Deborah Barnes Hall.  Big congrats on that one!!
