Some more gifts I’ve been working on. This lap quilt for my mom. I loved the coin quilt Hillary did over at Wee Wonderful’s. This was hard just because we are always together!
I’m glad he liked them so much. I also made his mom a scrapbook of our Alaska trip and she liked it so much she cried!!! I felt so super happy that everyone liked their handmade gifts. I’m working on a pair of these for my little brother Taylor as we speak.
And finally the hugest of projects was refinishing this ginormous chopping block for Bj. I got it at a yard sale for $15 dollars a couple years ago and it was covered in grim, and had been over oiled. Bill helped me get the feet off, and then I had it sanded front and back on an industrial belt sander. I scraped the sides, sanded them, and also sanded the feet. Then I put the feet back on and bleached the whole thing. I oiled it and there you go. One of these in stores would be like $250 so I’m really proud of this find. It’s huge, like 17" by 26" I’ll have to take a picture of it tonight on Bj’s counter!
