Needlework and Wood Working Update - June, 2020

Good morning,

Kjell made the custom order box with a Texas theme that you see above.  That's the only entry from the wood workshop this month, although he has quite a few other projects in process.  The engravings on the top, front, back, sides, and inside the lid are all very time consuming.  An absolutely gorgeous work of art!  We have a variety of wood boxes in the shop here that are available to ship now.
Above is a new sweater design that I have developed.  The sweater has been sold and delivered to the customer.  We have other sweaters available here.
Part of the sweater order are this coordinating hat,
and boot cuffs.  Of course, we have hats, headbands, and boot cuffs available in the shop, too.  Explore the shop section links listed at the side of the main shop page.
I needed something small to make between the larger projects.  These are kitchen scrub pads with cotton on one side and acrylic yarn on the other.  They're washable in the laundry to keep them fresh.  The pads pictured here are spoken for, but I may be adding some to the shop to coordinate with the large pot holders that are available.  They are perfect items for kitchen wedding showers.
I'm still making masks upon request and have several in the shop.  I photographed this one with flash so the open texture design is visible. The design keeps the wearer from being overheated and the mask holds a disposable coffee filter fits and works perfectly.  Of course, the masks are washable either by hand or in the washer.  A mesh laundry bag is recommended when machine washing to maintain freshness.

These have all be delivered.  A variety of colors of masks is available in the shop here.
I've designed and made an "ear saver" to wear on the back of the head to hold the mask elastic in place without putting pressure on the ears.  I've given this one to our daughter to test market.  If it works for her, I'll surely make more for the shop.  Of course, they'll work with our masks or any other masks with elastic ear loops.

Our shop appears on many social media platforms as well as on Etsy.  We sincerely appreciate your comments, likes, shares, favorites, and purchases, too!  Please come see what else we've made here:  EvensensProductions.com.  Thank you so very much for your support of small business.

All the best,

Original and Traditional
