I wanted to welcome the two newest readers of my blog. Thanks for joining and I hope to get to know you better!
My husband, Marshall, had a birthday the other day and our future daughter-in-law, Nicki, created something quite neat for a special gift. She made a golden retriever out of clay that looks just like my husband's dog, Sam, down to his shiny white teeth! I'm amazed how she can work with the tiny bits of clay and shape them just right. He was quite tickled with the gift.
Speaking of gifts, I finished one of mine the other day. This hand knit beanie was knit using a slubby handspun spruce wool single. I think someone is going to like this!
My husband loves to turn on his lathe, and he gave me another wonderful walnut bowl. I hate to admit this, but I'm keeping my sewing machine feet in it. It's such a lovely bowl, it really should go on a display shelf.
