Nick Kirsch

Strawberry Festival

Well, I was planning on heading out to the Vashon Island Strawberry Festival tonight - but the unrelability of the Washington State ferry system circumvented that plan. Actually, I’m not at all displeased. I am quite the home-body.

lo and behold

i never knew lathing could be so much fun. i’ve made two rings, and i’m working on a third. i think the third will turn out to be the better of the lot. but i can’t say that until i actually produce it. ;P

Hot in Tacoma

It is just scorching outside. So I’m relaxing inside with a beer, some sunflower seeds, and the whirling sounds of a metal lathe. Go Mr. Bit, go. ;P

Eriko’s first gift is complete. A purple shirt with some Japanese writing on it. It’s not quite as professional as I would like, but well - I’m not a professional. :P I hope I am able to see her wearing it. X)
