"Wait... What?" Those were my thoughts exactly after I walked into the kitchen and looked out the window. My first thought was that the rain had watered the bush in the backyard and it had grown a whole bunch without me even noticing. After doing a double take, however, I realized that there was a tree in our backyard. The tree that used to grow out of the hillside (which you can see in one of the pictures in this post) is now taking up most of our back deck. The roots are still in the ground, so hopefully the hill will remain in place with the next storms that come our way (one is raging even as I speak). Having a tree in our yard makes it difficult to spend time out there, and definitely not with Goen. I'm hoping they come cut the tree out soon. Besides, I have my eye on keeping some of the wood for a project idea I have. Which reminds me. Does anybody know how to cure wood to prepare it for carving? Any print or online resources that you have found helpful? I'm a complete novice, so something basic would be great.
Hi. My name is Carley. I love to sew, craft, and create. As a Jane-of all-crafts so to speak, I enjoy sewing, writing, cooking, drawing, photographing. But the constant thread (if you'll excuse the pun) throughout my weeks is needle arts.
