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.

Ok, you all remember these chairs, right? 



Well, I finally got started on a project with them.  I started with two chairs and some poplar that I found.



I cut the front of the chair off and sanded down all the cut areas. 



I cut, sanded and painted the pieces of poplar.



I also cut some corner pieces for support, and a piece of plywood for the seat.  And here is my new garden bench. 



I still need to cover the seat, but it will come soon.

I don't think I'll have any more challenge entries.  Not enough time in a day.

Here's some of what I've been up to.

paint chip bookmarks



record journals



wooden baskets:

made from scraps of beadboard



woodburned elements (earth, air, fire, water)

Several years ago, someone on here made a scrabble clock.  I don't remember who it was, sorry.  Anyway, I duplicated it.



Then I changed it.  The newer scrabble games have tiles that are a different color.

Several years ago someone made a scrabble clock here.  Sorry, I don't remember who it was.  Anyway, I made one similar to that old one.  The difference is that the newer games have different colored tiles, so I made a clock with some of the old letters and some of the newer ones.

Here's my version.

I worked a puzzle that was in panels, so I fused the puzzle together and cut the panels apart to make mini art pieces.  Framed them up and I'm good to go.









I also saw some stitched pieces of wood on the internet somewhere a couple of years ago, and decided to try this at home.  I had some scrap pieces of wood and some leftover pieces of embroidery thread, so this is what I did.  There are eleven different pieces here, but only four drilling patterns.

Ok, so I'm finally back to crafting.  I've been playing with copper wire and thread.  I made these suncatcher ornaments.








Then I made some earrings, using the same concept.
