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.

Love the matchbox weaving.  If there's a tutorial, I'd like to see it as well.

Craft something for your garden or a friend's garden...or bring the outdoors in with a planter, terrarium, etc.  Make a windchime...a suncatcher...it will be one of the challenges for June/July!!!

Do my garden and my gathering baskets qualify?

The hand is mostly recovered, but I'm still working through some issues with my shoulder.

Bunny1kenobi, it just takes a little patience, but you could do it.

Bookstorebabe, the lemon cucumbers have a mild lemony flavor, they are yellow in color and they are burpless.

Yoopidou, definitely get a carving glove.  It could be the difference between a bandaid and a trip to ER.

Thanks, everyone for the comments.  It's good to be back.  Now I just need to focus on that list.

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.
