Congratulations, Bunny1kenobi.

fantasticmio, that is a beautiful blanket.  Can't say I blame you for wanting to keep it.

Here's my latest small project.  There's a back story to this one.  A couple of years ago I was in a swap with Sevsonlygirl.  I sent her a bowl made from a gourd.  I had cut the top of the gourd off and set it aside for another day.  Well, I finally pulled it out and made a wall sconce from it.  Not my best work, but I really had no idea how to do this, so I just winged it.

Thanks for the link, SilverMoon.  It looks simple enough.  Now I just need to find the time.

My latest project.  I was asked to make a spool knitter that didn't look like a spool.  So, I got out my carving tools and went to work. 

Here's my version.



And here it is, in use.



It seems to work ok.  Stitches are nice and even.

It's been awhile since I've been here, but I haven't been idle.  Most of my time has been spent working in my garden, but I have also been making a few crafts.

Please excuse the picture dump.  There's been a lot of stuff here.

First, some of my garden photos.

Lima beans



garlic



one of four different tomato varieties.  These also have carrots planted with them, but we won't see them for awhile.



cauliflower, with radishes



one of two beds of strawberries



lemon cucumbers.  We decided to try these in oak barrels this year, along with the celery



celery



Then, I tried to make some small boxes, just to see if my hand was working properly.



made myself a crown from reeds, indian style



also carved a bazillion tiny hearts as a giveaway for a class that I was teaching



I carved a very large hollow spiral, just for fun.  I may try to put something inside of this.



carved this spoon, which won a national contest.



and resulted in making this spoon for a customer



a whimsical fish



a sea turtle that's not quite finished.  I think I'm going to color it.



I also made myself some gathering baskets, for when my harvest is ready.



And a couple of aggravation game boards for a friend.



That's all for now.  I have more stuff, just didn't take photos of everything.

A canteen gourd, leather dyed and carved with a dremel.

Everybody is making such wonderful things.  I love everything, but I have a hard time keeping up.

It's been three months since my surgery.  I'm halfway through my healing process and I decided to try carving something.  Please don't laugh too loudly.  This is my first attempt for awhile.  It's a simple carving, a whittled knife.  It's made from a piece of weeping cherry, pulled from my firewood pile.  Makes a pretty good letter opener, though.

So many wonderful projects have been done so far.  I feel like I'm already behind.

Here's my first project of the new year.  I carved all these spoons in the last couple of days.



And here's a separate photo of three spoons that are all the same type of wood.  I thought that this was funny they all came out a different color.  They are all poplar.



These will be going to the carving show in a couple of weeks.  It's the only big project that I can do now.  I will have my surgery day after tomorrow, and then no crafting for awhile.

37  whoppers in Dessert by pinokeeo on: December 22, 2013 08:44:27 AM
I'm sure this has been done before, but I tried these and was pretty happy with the results.
They aren't exactly round or all the same size, but they taste just like the whoppers that you buy.  Better, actually because you can use whatever chocolate you prefer.





Here's what I did:

Melt one half cup of almond bark in the microwave.
Add one half cup of malt powder and stir well.
Form into little balls and set on waxed paper to harden.
Melt chocolate of your choice (I used Ghirardelli 60% cacao).
Dip hardened malt in melted chocolate and set on waxed paper to dry.

Eat and enjoy.

Well, I am back, now that my partner has had her eye surgeries and can see again.  Yay!!

Everybody is doing some incredible crafts, and I haven't been keeping up, but I went back and looked at everything.

I have always wanted to try to make my own malted chocolate balls, so I thought I'd give it a try.  These are amazingly easy to make, and I am mostly happy with the results.  I will probably tweak the recipe until I have something a little better.





They taste just like whoppers that you buy, except that I used dark chocolate.  I also want to try a peanut butter layer next time.

CRAFT CHALLENGE

OK, I have finished my 50th project.  

I made some ornaments for a swap on another forum.  While I was at it, I made a few extras for family members.  

I can't post all of them, because some of them are still in transit, but you'll get the gist of it.

Ornaments with bells.



glass dolphin



glass hummingbird



The colors look kind of funky on here for some reason.

Ooooo, your liqueur sounds and looks delicious.  I remember many years ago when I made orange flavored liqueur by suspending an orange over the brandy in a gallon jar.  Nice job.

My next project is complete.  Well, sort of.  This is a practice piece and has only 16 links in it.  The next one of these that I will do will have 48 links in it and I'm going to put it on my Christmas tree, probably not until next year.

My carved chain.  This is all one continuous piece of wood.





Most of this was done with a small detail carving knife and a flat chisel, but I did some smoothing with a dremel.
