A canteen gourd, leather dyed and carved with a dremel.

Everybody is making such wonderful things.  I love everything, but I have a hard time keeping up.

It's been three months since my surgery.  I'm halfway through my healing process and I decided to try carving something.  Please don't laugh too loudly.  This is my first attempt for awhile.  It's a simple carving, a whittled knife.  It's made from a piece of weeping cherry, pulled from my firewood pile.  Makes a pretty good letter opener, though.

So many wonderful projects have been done so far.  I feel like I'm already behind.

Here's my first project of the new year.  I carved all these spoons in the last couple of days.



And here's a separate photo of three spoons that are all the same type of wood.  I thought that this was funny they all came out a different color.  They are all poplar.



These will be going to the carving show in a couple of weeks.  It's the only big project that I can do now.  I will have my surgery day after tomorrow, and then no crafting for awhile.

4  whoppers in Dessert by pinokeeo on: December 22, 2013 08:44:27 AM
I'm sure this has been done before, but I tried these and was pretty happy with the results.
They aren't exactly round or all the same size, but they taste just like the whoppers that you buy.  Better, actually because you can use whatever chocolate you prefer.





Here's what I did:

Melt one half cup of almond bark in the microwave.
Add one half cup of malt powder and stir well.
Form into little balls and set on waxed paper to harden.
Melt chocolate of your choice (I used Ghirardelli 60% cacao).
Dip hardened malt in melted chocolate and set on waxed paper to dry.

Eat and enjoy.

Well, I am back, now that my partner has had her eye surgeries and can see again.  Yay!!

Everybody is doing some incredible crafts, and I haven't been keeping up, but I went back and looked at everything.

I have always wanted to try to make my own malted chocolate balls, so I thought I'd give it a try.  These are amazingly easy to make, and I am mostly happy with the results.  I will probably tweak the recipe until I have something a little better.





They taste just like whoppers that you buy, except that I used dark chocolate.  I also want to try a peanut butter layer next time.

CRAFT CHALLENGE

OK, I have finished my 50th project.  

I made some ornaments for a swap on another forum.  While I was at it, I made a few extras for family members.  

I can't post all of them, because some of them are still in transit, but you'll get the gist of it.

Ornaments with bells.



glass dolphin



glass hummingbird



The colors look kind of funky on here for some reason.

Ooooo, your liqueur sounds and looks delicious.  I remember many years ago when I made orange flavored liqueur by suspending an orange over the brandy in a gallon jar.  Nice job.

My next project is complete.  Well, sort of.  This is a practice piece and has only 16 links in it.  The next one of these that I will do will have 48 links in it and I'm going to put it on my Christmas tree, probably not until next year.

My carved chain.  This is all one continuous piece of wood.





Most of this was done with a small detail carving knife and a flat chisel, but I did some smoothing with a dremel.

Ok, sorry for the back-to-back posts, but I finished this ornament and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  This is carved from a 4X4X4 chunk of basswood.  I carved the whole thing with carving knives, gouges and swiss files.  The heart in the middle was from an old necklace.  There are eight rays in this carving.

So, I was asked to finish a project that was started by another person.  These were made from crappy wood, and some of the parts were cut out already.  Mostly, what I did was to clean up the parts and do the assembly of 24 dune buggies.



They will be going to a hospice care facility for the Alzheimer's patients to paint and/or decorate.  They will then be sold at their annual art auction.  Sorry for the crappy picture.  This was a hurry-up job and the photo was taken with a phone.

CRAFT CHALLENGE

Ok, here's the start of my newest projects.

I've been practicing with my scroll saw, and since Christmas is coming, I thought I'd start with some basic ornaments.  No paint here, just cuts in the wood.







Then I decided to try doing some in 3-d.




And I also finished another rug.  This was supposed to be an order for someone, but she backed out and I decided to finish it anyway.  I've never done a rug in all solid colors before, or in black and white.  I like the results.
