my dad made a new friend last week. he's a woodworker and has made lots of wooden...doodads (for lack of a better term since my brain has given up on me at the moment) from trees on his property (like 22 acres I think he said). he gave my dad these wooden snowflakes he made, which of course my dad then gave to me. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. some of the snowflakes are made from 6 different kinds of wood as you can see by the different colors. I don't know exactly what kinds were used, but I know cedar was definitely one of them. it's the only one I can smell. lol
closeup of one of the snowflakes to better see the different woods used.
I just marked off the places to hang them from around the inner ring of an embroidery hoop, then put it back together. it's currently being displayed on a hanger in my doorway since I had no other way to take a picture of it. I need to get a hook in my ceiling tomorrow, but I couldn't wait that long to show it off.
