Mom has been away from carving spoons and dishes for a long time. Recently, a friend of hers asked if she could make her one for something very special and mom thought about it and checked her wood supply and said yes!
But first - it's been YEARS since mom has carved so she needs to get back into the swing of things.
You all ask about mom's wooden ornies on the Airedale Christmas tree. So now you can see. She has to slice the handle so it's not so thick and voila - the ornie!
Remember this stunning AireArrangement from Putter's mom and Sunshade's mom~
Mom has tears in her eyes again. We know where this stone came from, don't we? It came from the Rainbow Bridge and it was sent by angel Maggie because she knew that it would be the perfect addition to HER dish!
The dish is made out of butternut wood and the flower is mahogany and the flower center is maple and the leaf is cherry and the eyebrow is chestnut.
So mom has been spending time in the workshop carving in between spending days at Crumpie's barn helping dad on the cupola project and she's having the best time!
So until next time...........
Love ya lots,
