I am about halfway at this point. The Sirdar is also moving along, but taking a picture of the black yarn doesn't come out so well.
You see how neglected she is? I hope to easily disassemble her and refurbish her to get that finish or a new one, looking fabulous. I love working with wood and finishes - so this will be a fun project. Cross your fingers on this one :-} that she will spin well!
