Learning Something New
I want to share with you something new I tried this weekend. I have always loved these engraved spoons. Normally they are made into markers for herbs, but I thought it would be fun to do phrases. So when I was visiting Anne Sutton (of Bunny Hill Designs) blog, Bunny Tales, she had the directions on how to make these and I dove right in.
I have got a long way to go to perfect this skill. Swinging a sledge hammer isn't as easy as it appears, and obviously that causes the letters not to be straight on these first few tries. I love the simple, rustic look about them, though.
My mind is running with ideas, but I need to practice a bit more. I hope that you had a wonderful weekend and that Monday proves delightful.
