Needlework and Wood Update - March, 2017


Good morning,

It's time for the monthly Needlework and Wood Update once again.  Be sure to scroll all the way down to see all the new wood items.

The item above is quite a brain teaser!  My Honey made this Executive Desk Top or Coffee Table Game of quality hard wood so it will provide a challenge for years to come.  What a wonderful gift for the executive in your life, your spouse, your boss, your very intelligent children (it's fun to watch them figure it out), and yourself!  We get a kick out of the one we have in our living room because every time someone comes in, he/she has to try it.  The one pictured above is available in our shop as of this writing.
 
 The Lady Bug Sweater Jacket above and matching hat below are a custom order in child size 10.
They were purchased by a wonderful grandma for a beautiful little girl. 
This month I also made two baby girl blankets and dolls.  One was a custom order, the other I made to restock the shop and is available at this writing.

What a beautiful Easter gift for baby!  Click the image above for more information.

Also perfect for Spring is this large afghan blanket.  Beautiful, warm, cuddly, and the color of Spring.
This is a toilet brush handle or broom handle topper.  Not only is it a darling conversation piece, it keeps your handle from marking the wall where it leans.
This Tuxedo Wine Bottle Cover and Hat is also new this month.  What a perfect table decoration when paired with our bottle dresses and hats available in many colors.
I do love turtles!  This little fellow hatched this month and is in the shop waiting for its forever home.
Also to restock are more luggage identifiers.  Lavender pictured above.
I have personal experience with these.  For only $5 for the set they are wonderful for finding your luggage among all the others in cruise and airport terminals.  I always have one on my carry on to show to the porter who then quickly locates the other pieces of my luggage.  Royal Blue Luggage Identifiers are pictured above.

This pretty wood box is not available in the shop...
...because My Honey made it for me and filled it with chocolate for me for our anniversary.  Awwww.  How sweet of him!  :)
Kjell also made three more security key chain whistles for the shop...
...and, at this writing...
...one is still available in the shop.  These are hand turned of laminated hard woods and have 24kt gold plated hardware.

That's what we have been doing since last month's update.  It is wonderful to be home with family and where we can work on these projects we enjoy so much.  We enjoy making things that others find useful to have themselves and to give as gifts. Don't hesitate to ask if you'd like something made especially for you.

We appreciate you all who shop for gifts and for yourself at EvensensProductions.com and who "favorite" items in our Etsy shop.  "Favorites," sales, and reviews all help to keep our items at the top of search engines.

We also appreciate your "Likes" and "Shares" on our Facebook Page which also help keep our little shop visible on the Internet.

So, thank you for your encouragement!  Retirement is good!  Let us know if there is anything we can create for you.

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  ;)

All the best,
Lois
