Well, there's an unusual combination! I'll explain that title when I get to my Cutting Board. In the meantime, I wanted to show you what we did yesterday.
We decided to drive south to Coos Bay. We stopped by the Umpqua River Lighthouse to stretch our legs and to take a few photos.Shore Acres. It must have been amazing to live here...almost a pinch me, I can't believe I live here every day. To be able to view this rugged yet gorgeous coast every day...
then to go to walk through a shelter of woods to your formal gardens with dahlias and roses near the house.

Can you imagine living in such a place? Talk about a dream world!

What a delight to find some dahlias still blooming....
along with some of the roses.

On The Cutting Board
The title has to do with everything I have been working on this week. Oh, you already figured that out!
Okay...so here's the Witch! She is all done and ready to go. I added a piece of driftwood for a more natural look. I gave the driftwood a good scrubbing to get all the sand off of it.
I braided some fabric with twine. I thought using twine would also give the hanger a more natural look.
Sorry the pictures are not better. We are in a very shady spot. The sun never hits this site. The Witch already has a buyer, so I won't be listing her on Etsy.
Now for the Cupid/Angel and Snowman.
As I was finishing up the wall hanging, I received a request for two more custom orders. This time both mug rugs are by Nancy Halvorsen. The customer asked for a few simple changes.
The main change she asked for was to change Cupid/Angel's hair to a blonde bob with bangs and to straighten out her eyes.
I will also be making her a snowman with straight-er eyes. I told her two weeks, but I would like to ship them to her by the end of next week. Well, I better get to it!
