Last few weeks work



This is what I have been doing for the last few weeks as the weather and my health would allow. I can do the woodburning inside, but have to be outside to spray on the sealer and do the sanding.

I have several more shapes ready to be sanded and burned or painted. Maybe even something Christmasy!

One of my special friends and I have worked out a barter for thread winders and some of her tatting. She likes what she calls the "beau-tree-flies" and the flower with the vines. Can't find anymore butterflies right now, but I have other things I think all of you will like.

Also, while searching for something entirely different on Wednesday, I found the photos from my woodcarving period. There are pictures of my dad and I at at a show and more of our work. Would you like for me to scan them in and post them? You won't believe it's me!

Laura, these are fabulous! My favorites are still the oak leaves!

Jane Eborall said...

Love the trees too. Of course we want to see more pictures - you silly moo.

Thanks Diane. I'm glad you like them. Daddy always loved to carve and paint leaves.
I knew I could count on you Jane. I've always loved cows and being silly, so being a silly moo is too much fun!

I was wondering if you were still doing these. I am pleased to see that you are!

ohhhh....why do you have to inspire me so much when I have so little time!!!!

Oak leaves are usually my favorite motif, as far as leaves go, but butterflies are a favorite too and I just love the way you've made the tree growing in the butterfly. That one is my favorite.

Family photos always fun - SHOW them!

Hi Laura, I was wondering what you where up to. I hope you are feeling better. Your thread winders are beautiful and you bet we would love to see pictures of your wood carving days.

These are all so lovely! It's funny, I could've sworn I left a comment on this post earlier this week. Maybe blogger is doing it's wierd thing with comments again, LOL.
