Projects

The Christmas ornaments are coming along, we have 55 done now…15 more to go and many of those are in progress.

We worked on some more glass flowers yesterday…this one needed a heavy copper pipe.

Blue Glass Flower

I wasn’t sure that this one would hold together because it is so heavy…so far so good. The red reflection is from the red bird feeder above it.  This is five pieces of glassware.

I made a display board for some bark carvings, the carving group is having a display at an event in Park Rapids tomorrow.  A display helps introduce wood carving to others who may not know how diversified our group is. Bark Carvings

I found this perfect piece of Black Walnut out in the woodshop…imagine that!  I sanded it and put a coat of sealer on it and viola I have a display board.  I try not to look around too much out in that woodshop…oh my.

I sent out another bunch of sympathy cards…people are dropping like flies.  I need to make more sympathy cards one of these days.

So that is an update on my projects.

  10. The crafts are a lot of fun and it makes old people continue to learn things. At our age we tend to lose people on a regular basis.

  11. I think it's wonderful that you and your husband enjoy doing the crafting together. Beautiful display you made! I know what you mean about the sympathy cards - - - lots happening in that area here, too. It's weird and disturbing how it comes in waves like that.
