crafting and a new bag...

Today I thought I would work on the wooden pedestals from Anna Corba's Vintage Paper Crafts, in between the laundry and changing of beds. I rounded up some scraps of plywood in Mike's wood shop and found a couple of scrapped finials that were perfect for the project. Mike was at work, so I had the band saw, table saw, and drill press all to myself :-). After a phone call to ask where the proper drill bit was, I even countersunk the holes! A little wood filler and some sanding and these were my results...more pictures of my progress next time...

Over the weekend I finished up this bag using the barkcloth I bought at the antique co-op. As much as I hate to give it up, I've listed it in my shop...

Thanks for all your well-wishes for my son. After a few days on penecillin he is feeling much better!

  7. I am so impressed with your many talents! Your new bag is so pretty. I love the fabric used this way.
    The cake pedestals are very cool and you're a woman after my own heart with your abilities to use power tools. It's so much nicer to be able to just do things when you want to and not have to wait for help. Can't wait to see the pedestals finished!
