These are on a cord, so that they can be worn around the neck, but if I make more I am going to paint them to look like chocolate and vanilla ice cream. 

It took longer to carve these tiny things than it does for bigger items.  I'm not sure why.

Well, I am behind again.  You all have some really awesome projects going.  I have just skimmed through the last 20 pages, trying to get caught up and the amazement is complete.  Blankets, socks, bookmarks, critters, quilt stuff, dolls, and on and on.  All beautiful stuff.

I have been busy but not much for crafting.  Here's my latest big little project.  I carved an ice cream cone.  Then someone saw it and asked for a double scoop.  Then someone else saw it and wanted soft serve.  So here are my three ice cream cones, and one photo to show size of the cones.  That's a quarter in the photo.

They are fun to make, but take a long time.  I have about 47 hours in this one.

This is my second time making a piano arm clock.  I redesigned it so that the middle is scooped out for the clock hands.  It keeps perfect time.

You might also want to try cherry or walnut.  You need to strop your knives a little more, but the results are worth it.

I just scored a piece of butternut that I will be carving for the first time.  I'll post when I have something from that.

Yeah, plywood is hard to carve in.  If you can get some basswood, sugar pine or tupelo, they are great woods for carving.

You did a great job on this anyway.  It looks really smooth.

Wow!  Everything is so beautiful, the shibori fabric, note cards, mosaic, pendants, stencils, and everything else that I've lost track of.  You all are on a roll.

My latest projects.

The first is my second piano clock.  I redesigned it, with a shallow dip in the middle for the clock hands.





The second project was a simple one.  I made a talking stick for my Native American friend En Ne Op eh, who is the head of the Three Feathers flute circle.  She gifted me a flute awhile back, so I wanted to make something special for her.

Yum!  Those sausages get my vote, especially with sweet onions.

Love the quilts and that dress is adorable.

The kids won't be finishing them until Labor Day weekend, but I will post photos of the finished tiles.  I'm excited to see what they do with them.
