as you might have noticed, I have lost interest in blogging. that only took seven or eight years. I don't know if I will keep this up but I thought I would do some catching up on past events.
today's post, what I did on the rest of my summer vacation.
I made a receiving blanket with this rad civil rights themed fabric - the other side is a flannel polka dot.

I went to North Carolina to take a two week class on making wood jewelry with my sister. She was a lot more prolific and skilled in her output, but I managed a few things...
a set of rings:
striped wood beads/pendants, made by laminating together two woods and then carving down:
a carved wood dogwood brooch for my mom:
wood carving is hard. I think I will stick to two-dimensional crafts in the future. I am impressed by people who can visualize a three-dimensional product within a square block of wood. it is a skill I do not possess.
