I finished up some wool stones over the weekend, a project that I really enjoy. These were a request from a customer of mine and something that I haven't carried in my shop in a while. Since I had so much fun making them I decided to do a few extra and they'll be in the shop later this week. These are made with real stones in the middle and I like them as natural decorations scattered around the house and as photo props. My kids really like hauling these around too and stacking them up. I think there's something about the soft wool and the heft of the stone, it makes a nice combination.
I'm also working on few more birch brooches today. I cut discs from downed branches, shape and sand them, and then apply a thin layer of birch bark like a veneer on top. I then drill holes and embroider designs on them. I finish the sides and back by rubbing it with local beeswax. They're simple and natural which appeals to me.
Since I had the tools out I put together some small birch tags for my packaging too.
And yes, I'm making that mess on my kitchen table, much to my husband's dismay. I know. I know.
What are you working on today?
