  • Sparkly shoes rejects

    Just kidding

    These are some of the boxes I made while endeavoring to get one right for her and a couple of others I made in between. They are all between 2 1/2" & 3" tall, made of yew and finished with a wax polish.



    P.S I refuse to carve or pyrograph little doors into them 'cos I don't believe in fairies, pixies etc. so

                    Isn't that one of the joys of the independent crafter

                        No No No don't put ideas into peoples heads Scorch. You've been away you don't know what it's been like.

                        Actually that is an idea, a sort of natural edged bowl upside down.........I wonder

                          Heheh - sorry about that! I can't help it - I LIKE waney-edged stuff, and droopy mushrooms would be perfect from branches, and it doesn't matter if they bend over as they dry!
                          Cheers,

                            That was my first thought Pete but know you would kill me if I suggested it would look lovely though. Mo.XX

                              I love them, especially the mushroom shaped ones. I have always loved the colours and patterns of yew wood.
