Only When There's Food....
I was happy to have her use it. When I got this stool for Christmas, years ago, it was plain pine and flat surfaced. I liked the shape, but I needed darker furniture. Walter's dad bought it at a second hand store and it was nice, but not my cup of tea style wise. So....
I got out the carving tools. I drew a design directly on the wood and went to work. It was a roughly made stool from Mexico and I didn't think that it would hurt it to do some carving on it. Then I stained it. I didn't put a finish on it other than that. I oiled it yesterday and revived it.
To make a long story short...er, One thing led to another and I grabbed a piece of needlepoint canvas and did the same thing with that. Drew a line drawing of the center of an oriental rug that I had a picture of. All in all, it turned out pretty good. That just shows you what impulse is for. If you get an idea, go for it.
Last but not least, I have been making cookies by the dozens. Walter just left with this tin for a friend of his.
He had to rescue it from the Terrible Two. I don't think that they got any of them before he slammed the lid in place.
Anyway, I am off to make more cookies. I made a couple of jars of Taco Seasoning this morning for gifts. A couple more batches of cookies and I will be done! Back to the bowls.
See you tomorrow.
