Thanks for the kirigami links, AIMR.  I am so far behind on my paper crafting.

My latest projects that actually are finished.

First, I made dice.  These are woodburned and so easy to make.  I'll probably include them in some of my homemade games.



My second items is a board challenge entry.  I'm calling this Sidewalk Scrabble.  I cut and sanded all the pieces and stencilled on the letters and number values.  I'll be taking these to another location where the kids will be painting the letters on, then they will play scrabble on a basketball court.

There are 100 tiles in the set, and the two blanks are included.



For size reference.  I'll probably make another set of these in a smaller version for myself and my family.



I don't know if you can read this.  It says, play scrabble.



This was a fun project and it only took one day to make these.

I'm loving all the projects.  I'm working on things, just don't have photos yet.

These are bali cherries, so they are sour cherries, more for pie making than just eating.

Our rainier tree isn't mature enough to produce yet.  I'm looking forward to the day when we get those.  Rainiers and royal anns are great just for eating.

Just sharing a photo that I took yesterday.  Back story:  We planted two dwarf cherry trees about seven years ago.  The last couple of years our harvest has been dismal, and before that we got nothing.  So I'm excited about these trees being full this year.  Here's the first pick from one of the trees.



These are already in the dehydrator.  The next batch will be made into pies for the freezer.

Bacon bowls will definitely be on my list of things to try.  They look yummy.

You radishes look wonderful!  I scaled back quite a bit in my garden and now sort of regret it...only tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers...I should have snuck in a few radishes and carrots!

It's not too late.  Radishes grow in just a few weeks.  As a matter of fact, I'm doing a second planting, and maybe a third this year.  I'm planting every three or four weeks, so that I will have them into the fall.  

And now is the time for carrots, and they will grow until the frost hits them.  After that they need to come out of the ground, but they are sweeter for the frost.

And you can grow either one or both with your tomatoes.  Companion planting is a good thing.

Wow! 5000 cranes is more than impressive!  I have only ever folded half a dozen.  I can't even imagine that many cranes.

Many other projects that look great.

My latest.  I went ot a show this past weekend and was asked to do a carving demonstration.  While I talked, I carved a couple of tricky items.

The first is a spoon with a captured ring, meaning that the ring is part of the spoon and doesn't come off.  The wood came from my firewood pile, so I don't even know what kind of wood it is.  I only know that it is brittle, so I won't be using this kind of wood again.



The second is a celtic tri-knot.  It was just an experiment to see if I could carve like this, but apparently someone was impressed, because I sold it.  Anyway, this one is carved from walnut, one of my favorite carving woods.



And, when I got home, I picked the first of my harvest, fresh radishes.



Hope you like them.

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.

Well, in this case, I used the same size hole that was in a spool.  I'm going to try to make my own nifty knitter, based on what I just did, so I can make the hole any size I want.

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.
