A Mixture of Works from us both.

The quilt Sue finished after 7 years all hand cut and sewn, double side. Originally for someone else but they had said not knowing that it was being made for them that their colours had now changed, that was just after the quilt was started.

 A single Candle holder made from Bottle Brush finished with Danish Oil. 

 Two more Candle Holders both are Camphor Laurel. Turned from a branch and some bark at the base left as a foot. Its now law in Australia that candles should have a metal drip tray at the top. These have a metal cup insert only and are more for decoration then use. 

Spoils of work done.

These two cake stands are off cuts from the Rosewood and Huon Pine three tier stands I did during this year. The Rosewood just keeps moving, twisting and cupping and then settles and starts all over again.

The Huon had tear out along one edge section it was filed with CA but also has two splits which had to be repaired. The foot is Australian Red Cedar.
These have been seconded by Sue.

 Its Christmas and with Christmas comes a cooking of delicious Christmas treats by Sue.
Fruit Cakes, Mince Tarts, Short Bread and Ginger Bread Cookies. Usually a Ginger Bread House but the steamy humid weather would ruin it and make it soggy.


Just about done for Christmas, we have been busy.

Sue and I would like to wish all those who take the time to stop by and read our Blog a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
