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.

Ok, so I'm a little behind on posting.  I'm trying to get caught up from my harvest.

My latest spoons.  I tried to use some exotic hardwoods.  I was successful, but I really had to work for these.  They are myrtlewood, padauk, rosewood, basswood and walnut.  These are all oiled, but not polished.



I also tried carving a piece of emu egg.  The egg starts out dark dreen and as you carve down through it, the colors change.  This piece has nothing added to it.



I am also working on carving my first lovespoon.  This one isn't quite finished, but it's close.

More of my canning.  Blackberry and plum syrup, to be used for gift baskets for my neighbors this year.





And the last batch of pickles that we will make.  Lemon cucumbers, anyone? Cheesy

I love your running commentary, Smeddley, and the cow is too funny.

And I really like your recycled yarn holder.  Nice work.

My latest project:  I have been playing around with piano parts lately.  I had received an entire piano keyboard, minus everything except the keys and arms.  The person that gave me all these parts to play with issued a challenge.  Bet you can't make a clock out of these.  Well, I couldn't pass up a challenge like that, so here's my version of a piano arm clock.

All of the pieces were ground down on one end at a 7.5 degree angle per side, so that all of the pieces met in the middle.  Then I added a backer board to hold the clock mechanism, and cut to fit some clock hands and added numbers all around.



The arms aren't straight, so the clock looks a little tipsy, but I assure you it keeps pretty good time.

Well, I guess I missed all the challenges, but that's ok.  I've been very busy anyway.

Fresh picked this morning from the garden. 
Strawberries.  I'm picking this many about every three days now.  What we don't eat is going into the freezer.  Five pints, so far.



Red onions and lemon cucumbers.  These are getting jarred up into sweet pickles.  The exhibitor tag was from the county fair.  The onions were picked a couple of weeks ago, for the fair, but I pulled up the rest of them this morning for storage.





We also canned peaches.  What a chore these were!  I've never done peaches before, so I'm quite proud of these.

I think I forgot what the challenge is all about for this month.  No matter.  I've been so busy that I don't know if I lost a horse or found a rope.

I've been mostly carving.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of some of my carvings and I sold them.  Here's my recent stuff.
Ornaments. 





Another spoon.  I have a couple more, but I think I lost the photos of them.



And a baby spoon, my first attempt.  This spoon is only five inches long.




I also was asked to carve a small bowl.  It didn't turn out real well from my point of view, but the recipient was very happy with it.



This bowl is 5.5 inches across.

So, I took the bench to a local county fair, just to see what the reaction would be.  Here is the result.

The blue ribbon is just the usual blue that is handed out by the local judges.  The yellow ribbon was by popular vote among all the fair goers that voted.  I've never had a people's choice before.

Ok, finished bench.  It has a beach theme, so crayfish on newspapers.

Nice job everyone.  I haven't had much time lately for anything.  But I did finally finish my bench.  I decided on a beach theme, so I have crayfish on newspaper.  I liked the color.

CHALLENGE ENTRY!!!!  At least I hope you'll accept this one, since it isn't technically finished.

Anyway, here's the link.

I pulled eight chair carcasses out of a dumpster, and decided to make something new from them instead of just finishing chairs that I really didn't need.

My almost finished garden bench.
