photos! a review of art from the end of 2010

hello! It has taken me a month to gather all the photos together, but what follows is visual bliss of all of the projects I was working on at the end of the year. Most became gifts, but I'm working out plans and patterns to sell earrings and some sewn goods in the near future.

to start with, at least 40% of everyone I know is having a baby. I decided it would be a ton of fun to make custom bibs for all of my friends. I found a ridiculously simple pattern and went to town. The chickpea sewing studio website is lovely and the pattern is super easy, check it out! Also, a special thanks to Maddie for the use of her beautiful sewing Machine and fabric.

In addition to becoming a little sewing elf, Lindley and I became wood gnomes and together cranked out a dozen cutting boards. Cutting boards are pretty easy to make, and look so polished and slick when they are finished.

Inspired by our friend, Tonia, who was cranking out sushi boards we made a sushi-ish board to keep as inspiration to make sushi in our new apartment!
Above is the butternut box from the box making class that I mentioned in early December. The box turned out so well, with lots of character, and the curly maple bottom just shines.
Earrings! these are the little lovelies that I have been giving away and selling to friends. (clockwise from top left) They first two are made of curly maple, cherry, below that another pair of curly maple, and the rectangular ones are walnut.
A close up of the curly maple leaves.

Last but not least, I experimented with some Stained glass leaves- ornaments and sun catchers for windows.

Thanks for taking the time to check out the photos! More to come- and some new recipes I have been working on as well.
