default New spoon

Post by Adrian on 25th August 2011, 10:10 pm

So on Sunday gone I was told to sit down and do something for me, so I tuned in live to Genevieve Tudors Sunday Folk, sat on the kitchen hearth and carved a new spoon from a fallen branch.

I'm pretty chuffed with the results, especially as it feels like I haven't carved anything in close to a year.

Here is is, oiled and ready to post to my sister as a belated birthday gift.
