Needlework and Woodworking Update - June, 2015

Good morning,

It has been a VERY busy month working on our favorite activities.

The lovely light aqua sweater above was a custom order and has been delivered.  That is certainly the color of the season.  So pretty!
These three Mug Rug sets are also spoken for.  They make perfect hostess gifts or to enjoy yourself.  In each band there are three crocheted cloths that can have many uses.  There are more sets available now in the shop. 

And, finally, I made two of these caps.  One has been delivered and the other is available in the shop.
 My Honey was extremely busy this month!

He made pens...
 ...and more pens...

He made Thumb Powered Pepper Grinders...
...and many more Thumb Powered Pepper Grinders!

 This type of Thumb Powered Pepper Grinder has a window.
And, this set is for pepper corns and coarse salt.
 And, finally he made two more seam rippers to restock the shop.
So pretty and useful, too.

So, it has been a VERY busy month!  I hope you enjoy seeing the creations that flow from our workshops.  It is such fun to make things we enjoy making.  We have many of these and many more items available in the shop ready to ship now. 

For Fathers Day and any day, we will gift wrap and ship gifts you purchase directly to the recipient.  Just send me a note in the space provided when you order.  There may be an additional charge for the shipping if the shipping address is in a different area than the address of the buyer. 

Thanks so much for your encouragement and support!

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  :)

All the best,


Hand Crafted Original and Traditional Designs
