Love the hoops and the cat, and I'm intrigued by all these prayer flags.  I'm not sure what they are for.

My latest effort.  Just a very large fork.  It's not finished yet, and I want to try to carve a spoon and spatula to go with it, but it's something for today.

Well, I'm at it again.  We are building boxes for charity, and this is my first one. 

This is a box made from plywood.  The lid is made by cutting the plywood into slices and turning it  on its side, glueing back together, cutting on an angle and every other one flipped upside down to get this herringbond pattern on the lid.  I've been wanting to try this for some time now and it seemed like the right time for it.



It's about five by eight inches and about four inches deep, a big box.  Here's a close-up of the pattern on the lid.



And the inside of the lid, so the pattern is sealed inside.



I'm very happy with the way it came out.

Always, the loom beading is only for my wedding clothes.  I really don't intend to do this on a regular basis.  And the colors on my clothes will be much softer.  I used these colors just so I could see what I was doing.  And I will post my garments once they are made.

And now I'm back to my regular scheduled programming.  I'm carving again.  Here are a couple of my latest items.  I carved a couple of celtic knots.  The walnut pieces are actually part of a log that I slabbed out, just for this purpose.



And a couple of love spoons.  These are both poplar, but the wood is so wildly different from piece to piece.  This wood is great for carving.



I also made myself a rack for my native american flutes.

Love the origami stars.  I've always wanted to make those, but have never done it.  I bow to you for making them.

I also love the beret and the assemblage art.  Nice work, all.

I haven't been very creative lately, but I did finally get my shop reorganized and I feel really good about that.

I did find the time to try something new.  I took a short class in loom beading.  I am getting married soon and want beadwork on my wedding clothing, so I had to learn how to do this.

My first attempt.



It isn't much, but I know now that I can do it.  This was just a practice piece, so it's just a short design.  Supposed to look like a feather, but it didn't come out that way.  I like it, though.

Love the steampunk jewelry and all the mini quilts.  You all are making great progress already this year.

I have one new item that I made today.  It's my smallest carving yet, I think.  My baby turtle, carved with only a knife.

Nice journal pages.  I see one there from Oregon.  Yay!  And your little fox is adorable.

Thank you!
I love Oregon. I live there, here, er... Grin. I had to go with the popular "heart in Oregon" theme but added the key because my kids were all born here too. Oregon rocks. I'm just sayin'. Wink

I live here too, and wouldn't live anywhere else.

Another item that was late for Christmas.  I actually finished this one on January 2.  I had started it last year, after my surgery.  I put it aside, not knowing how I wanted to finish it off.  Somebody asked me if I could insert something in it for a baby, so I added a small carved heart with the baby's name and year date.  I know it's hard to see, but it's just hanging inside the ornament.




And the lucky recipient of said ornament.  He is the sweetest baby and is almost nine months.

My first project of the year, a Celtic Trinity knot.  I carved this for my son's girlfriend.  We were late with Christmas this year, so last Saturday we exchanged presents and spent the weekend doing things together.



This is both sides of the same thing.

Been gone for awhile.  Somehow I lost my internet and have been offline for a few weeks.

Anyway, here's my latest project.  I made eight sets of these.  Only posting one.



I'm still reading through all the posts that I have missed, but I see lots of crafty goodness.

Sorry I've been gone so long.  LIfe has been hectic lately.  I have an upcoming craft fair that I wanted to make some new items for, so here they are. 

The first six items are copper coil ornaments.








The next photos are my paper crafts.  The first pic is my tiny boxes.  The smallest one is only 3/4 of an inch.  The next photos are 3 inch squares, folded and assembled in different ways.  The last of the four is called a gyroscope fold, because it's three dimensional.  These are fun to make because there's no glueing involved.  I also added buttons to the middle, just for fun.








The last photo is a kusadama ball.  There are 60 pieces of paper in this ball.  I had an old Rogue River map that I used to make it.  Took several days and lots of glue for this one, and I decided after making it that I am not going to do this again.

The game is totally fun, and because they painted the tiles red, they are easy to see from a distance.

Here's a preview from my garden.

Kentucky wonder green beans



Pineapple tomatoes
