Handmade Treasures

My creative efforts have been a little frustrating lately. I ran out of fabric in the middle of making another geometric baby quilt top and a shawl I am knitting is turning out more washcloth size then shawl size. I did however finish up a Mala requested by my husband for his woodworking shop. Not only is his shop full of huge power tools, it is his man cave of sorts. On the walls, he has hanging his long surfboard, climbing gear and memorabilia from the kids and I. He wanted one of the necklaces I make before I had used up all my favorite Turkish Tassels. (Tutorial here: https://entropyalwayswinsblog.com/2013/11/08/making-malas-a-tutorial/). I thought it was appropriate in turn to show it off with one of the wood boxes he made me in that man cave a few years ago to store my rings. Isn’t it beautiful? He is quite a woodworking artist.
