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.
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
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.
