haha just getting it back together now.

Just got swamped for Easter, that's all. I'm a clergyman in my other life and Easter is our busiest time of the year. That, and I hit some challenges with the other items I am making. I have several pewter pieces I'm casting and made the decision to start over and remake some of the molds to get them to behave the way they should. Had a day off yesterday and cast a bunch of pieces in the new molds and they came out real nice. Now I'm assembling stuff. Designed two-piece shawl pins (my wife has crocheted 13 shawls for the next show so far and I have to keep up!) that combine either a large open gear and a steampunk skeleton dude I sculpted or a gear and a dirigible flying machine I sculpted. Also, came up with a line of brass penny whistles/tinwhistles/feadogs that are turning out real neat. I casted pewter and plastic mouthpieces for them. Now that I'm back on track I should be able to get some bike stuff done ... I better - the show is next weekend!
