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.

Best of luck to you, Renstar.

I love the encaustic wax art.  It seems that you can get a lot of detail with it.  Nice.

Can't wait to see the temp tattoo art.

I have just carved nine very small moravian stars for pendants.  I think I'm done carving for today.  My hands hurt.



I think I'm going to put a finish on these.  They look pretty blah.

I have been working on WIPs for the past couple of days.  Trying to clear out stuff so I can start with something new.

I made a spoon to go with the fork I made earlier.



I also made a twisted knot, just for fun.  This is about two inches long.



A very long spiral, just to see how long I could make it without breaking.  Nearly seven inches long and stained with a cherry stain.


A couple of moravian star ornaments.



More baby spoons and a full size spoon of the same design.



And a couple of short spirals.  I'm changing this design, so I needed to finish these up.

Happy Ultimate Pi Day! 



I carved a pi symbol from an ivory piano key.

I think all of the amis are adorable.  What are the zippers for on the bottom?

And I love the idea of the inks.  I must put this on my list of things to do before I die or quit crafting, whichever comes first. Grin

I made another box for our charity drive.  This one has a slider lid.  I'm trying to make different shaped boxes with different lids.

I also carved another walnut spoon.  This one is from the same log as a couple of my celtic knots. I love the figure in this wood.

And for grins and giggles, I carved a kiss and a hug.  All carved from one piece of basswood, the X is loose inside the O.
