Needlework and Wood Working Update - February, 2020

Good morning,

My Honey has threatened to say I keep him locked in the Wood Working Workshop and send him raw hamburgers down the laundry chute a couple of times a week.  Not true.  I cook the hamburger first.  I really should be serious here.  Kjell loves working with wood and designing new items.  This month he has produced spectacular wood art!  And, no, there is no lock on the inside of the door to the wood workshop.  ;)

Above is titled "A Red Rose for My Love" and is carved into 2" thick Walnut wood.  He hand painted it and it is just stunning.  What a lovely Valentine that will last long after fresh roses are wilted and gone.  This will be beautiful on a mantle, desk, table, or wherever you want to enjoy it.  $54. It's available in the shop here.  Be sure to click on the images in the listing to see all angles of this gorgeous piece.
Here is something else new in the shop this month.  This first one sold within minutes of it being posted to Facebook so...
...he made another that is available here.  $84.  This is a unique piece for a school or church choir room, a child's room, your favorite musician and everyone else who loves music.
This is an outstanding piece engraved into two inch heavy Walnut wood.  This free-standing Eagle is spectacular.  $155.  What a fabulous gift for Fathers Day, Graduation, Valentine's Day, any day!  Be sure to look at all of the images taken at different angles and in different light to appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of this piece.

"Eagles in the Wild" is the title of this piece.  What a lovely piece for a Den, Office, or anywhere.  $77.  Click here for more images and information.

This three dimensional Eagle Shield Plaque will be a beautiful addition to any patriot's home or office.  $64.  More images and information here.
This truly unique three dimensional hand painted engraving of two horses in engraved frame is even more beautiful in person.  $95.  More images and information here.
This was a custom order for three of the engraved Old Glory with The Pledge of Allegiance.
 Here's another now available in the shop.  It is carved in Cherry wood.  $65.  More images and information here.
 Kjell also engraved the Pledge in Hard Maple that can be purchased individually or part of a set with the following two items.  $73.  More information and images here.
"First Amendment" engraved with Old Glory is also $73.  More here.
"Second Amendment" engraved with Old Glory can be a companion piece to the two above.  $73.  More here
From the Needlework Studio this month, another Lady Bug Baby Sweater Set was added to the shop to restock those already sold.  $55.  More images and information here.
This custom order Peony Pink Cables and Filigree Lace Sweater has been delivered to the buyer. 
 This headband...

...boot cuffs...
...and hat were also custom orders.
I truly enjoyed making this crochet lap blanket.  It is in muted colors and a medium weight that will be perfect for a man or a woman.  What a great Valentine gift for a man's reading chair.  $45.  More information and images here.
Quite a few of our cloche hats/chemo caps were sold last month so here are more that were both custom orders and restocked the shop.  More than four dozen in a variety of styles and colors are available here from $8

And, finally, here is a dish cloth that I made while working with corner to corner crochet.  Look for more items with this stitch in the future.  In fact, I have a shawl in browns and gray coming soon to the shop.

Also in the works now are another Cables and Filigree Lace Sweater custom order (back finished, 1/2 of front finished) that's in a gorgeous purple/red yarn, a neck warmer, and other projects already assigned to project bags and ready to go. 

I'm publishing a Work in Process blog post here weekly now, too.   It's a preview of what's coming to the shop.   If you see something you like, let me know and I'll be happy to make up a custom order for you.
