Wheel: In Progress
I've finished the second coat of stain. I loooove the color we happened to have lying around (lucky me!) BUT I've decided I hate the green I've picked out for the wheel, and now I'm kind of digging just a stained wheel. I'm thinking that I'll still paint the celtic knots in gold, but I'll get some tubes of green acryllic to paint clovers or something and vines around the knots. And I'm still painting the kiwi yellow. I debated over painting the treadles green, but I think it would look weird now since I'm not painting the whole wheel green. I think I might still paint the flyer though. Maybe. Or just decorate it with clovers and vines. AUGH, my indecision is killing me :c ETA: I might even write Ireland Forever in gaelic on the inner circle!

I still have no clue what to name her. Any suggestions?

Pictures so far (click to enlarge):

The Wheel.


Everything together





In progress in my stepdad's shop room. The stain is Sherwin William's Wood Classics in Fruitwood (2 coats)

ETA: I've decided to name her Einin (a-neen), which is a gaelic name for girls which means "little bird". I thought it was totally fitting :D
