Sorry I've been away for so long.  I've been really busy and not crafting.  I did take time to carve a couple of soup mugs.  These took forever to carve, but I'm happy with the results.

The wood is figured poplar, and I based the size on a regular soup mug, so I'm guessing they will hold a pint of soup.  They are going to Renaissance Faire with us in a couple of weeks.

I made some potion bottles today.  These are 1.25 inches high.  I used glitter glue and snow crystals for my potions.  And the plugs are cut up pencils.  Hokey, but I like them.

My first offering from the garden.  This is the earliest that I have ever got strawberries.  I'm surprised that they are ripe.

Ok, so here's my latest. 

A set of dominos.  No ordinary dominos.  These are jumbo size, about 4.5 inches long.  Just a fun thing to do.



I even put my logo on the back.



I also made a wizard stick, with marbles, crystals, brass filings and ivory dust in it. Also has a small burl stuck to the side of it.  The stick is made from diamond willow, which is why the colors are so vivid.



Another diamond willow.  This one had a LOT of diamonds in it.



And this one looks like it has caramel swirled in it.

So many wonderful projects.  Y'all are a busy bunch.

I have made a few things.

First, I tried my hand at making sheep.  The body is carved and the fleece added on.  Not the best pictures, so I'll try to get some better ones.



One of them has a drawer in its back end.



Then my friend and I experimented with making stepping stones with portland cement and marbles.  We learned a few things about this, which we will try to correct the next time we do them.




And, last of all, for a knitter friend, a stitch counter.

I have been sick for so long that I can't remember when I made anything last.  But today, I made it into the shop to get something done.  Not only did I get all my dust collectors emptied and cleaned, I made a few bud vases for the upcoming spring flowers.

All of them together:



And a couple of my favorites.  I like this one because of the grain in the wood.



And this one for the gentle sweeping curve that I managed.



Hope you like them.

Ok, so I've been working on this project off and on for the last week.  Turned bowl, maple with walnut feet, 16 inches across, seven inches high.  This was made from a solid chunk of wood.  More specifically, half a tree trunk.  I put a polyurethane finish on the bottom of the bowl, but the inside has a mineral oil finish, so that it can be used for food.

It is for making bread.  A dough bowl. 





I have no desire to sell this item on craftster, but I am asking for an opinion on what you all think it might be worth.  I am taking it to a show this weekend to try to sell it.

Your watercolors are amazing.  I love the tiled piece.  I always wondered how that is done.

My latest piece, a celtic circle knot.  Just another experiment.  It's about two inches across and about a half inch thick, in walnut.

The watercolors are beautiful.  I love the hummingbird.  I think it came out nice.

I had some old books and decided to make another box for charity. 

I started with an old world atlas.



Nothing on the back....



But inside...ta-da.  A box.



I was going to carve pages into the book, but the grain in the wood was so perfect that I just left it.

Ok, slight departure from the wood for awhile.  My hands have been giving me grief, so I decided to let the carving rest. 

These earrings are made from rescued charms and ivory piano keys.  It was just to see if I could come up with something different.  I'm very happy with the results.

Please excuse the lousy pictures.  Anything this small is hard to photograph.  They are 1/2 inch wide and about one inch long or a little longer, depending on the size of the charm.
