What I've been doing

I've been busy making spoons for the Christmas weekend at the shop and I'm thrilled to say all of them flew out the door yesterday, super cool feeling to have them go to new homes!
I also made this basket, took me ages and ages, it's about half a meter wide and is made from dried seed pods glued together.

The florist built a tree in the middle of the shop out of some old logs! her ability to visualise these things never ceases to amaze me!
