This weekend was a flurry of things to do. First Jim and I went to the Fireman’s Pancake Feed. After that it was off to the wood carver’s carve in to carve a spoon. My spoon is made of apple wood and Jim’s wood is made of buckthorn. I was having a difficult time as the apple seemed difficult to carve.
After a few hours, I was ready to take it to a belt sander or power tool as progress was pretty slow. Part way through, I went into Topeka to go to the rug hooking event
We meet once a month to hook. It is great fun. Then I hurried back to the carve in to pick up Jim and work a little more on my spoon.
I finally finished Colin and Julie’s rug that was their Christmas present. It just has to be pressed and labeled. It is the vintage postcard of Minnesota. I hope they like it. I can’t get the pictures to upload so will try that again later.Nola Heidbreder
