Needlework and Wood Working Update - August, 2019

Good morning,

This has been a busy month for both Kjell in his wood workshop and me in my needlework studio.

Above is a favorite Large Flower Garden Afghan Blanket. $155.  Click here for more images and information.
Here's another Large Afghan Blanket completed and sold this month.  I love these colors.  Have I mentioned I love blues?
I made the wool blend cloche hat above and

this non allergic acrylic cloche hat to restock the shop this month.  Dozens of cloche hats are available from $8.  Click here and scroll down to see them all.
Kjell has made some absolutely incredible wood carvings this month!  Above is Poseidon and the Vikings.  $88.  More images here.

This companion piece to Poseidon and the Vikings is titled "Vikings are at the Roots of Our Family Tree."  $88.  More images here
Kjell has made two Equestrian pieces this month.  Both the horse artwork and the frame are engraved.  This is a larger piece, approximately 21" x 15".  $148.  More information here
This is a slightly smaller piece, Mare and Foal.  $128.  More information here.
The wood art above can be hung on a wall or displayed with our stand sold separately.  The two Equestrian pieces require a larger stand than we have available for other, smaller items in the shop.  This larger stand is available here.
Here's something that Kjell made for us.  This is so much fun!  I did a separate blog post about this and included a video so you can see how it works.  Here it is.
Kjell made this for us.  It is mounted on the gate across the driveway to the back of our yard.  He engraved the wood and hand painted it.  Classy!  Think that's a clear message? 
And, finally, I made several more sets of Luggage Identifiers in a variety of colors.
These certainly are terrific to have on your luggage when trying to find your own among the thousands of others at a cruise or airport terminal.

$5 for a set of 6;  priceless when you travel.  See all the colors currently available here.  Of course, if you want a different color, just let us know.  We'll be happy to make up a custom order for you.

That has been our very busy month!  We both have a number of other items in the pipeline that we'll show you next month when finished.

We truly do appreciate your likes, shares, favorites, and purchases. 

All the very best,

Come see what else we've made!
