More quilts and a new project...

 Here's a few more quilts from the show that moved me...some...I don't know why...others are obvious...but hopefully you'll enjoy them...







 Here's the new project...Don has been making these. He was looking for something to do with all the reclaimed wood he has collected over the years...I think these are really great...but then I love clean lines along with a really rustic piece of wood...these are reclaimed cedar fencing...they are so full of character...





He spends a long time sanding down every piece til its so smooth...and then he added some great brushed nickel hooks. I mentioned that he should add them to my booth in the Fall to sell...what do you think??
I decorate very cottage...yet I like modern clean lines too...but do you think others would like them too...he wanted some one else's opinions...and I told him I would ask...for now it keeps him busy using his hands...enjoying the wood...I mean he can only make me so many bird houses and table tops...
we value your input...
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

Don does very nice work. I love the look of old wood. I think you would do well selling them in your booth.

Yes you should put them in your booth. And hang your bags from the hooks too!!

The quilts are beyond gorgeous. Reclaimed wood is popular now and always and brushed nickle is everywhere now so I say it is a go.

Of course, he should make some to sell in your booth. I was going to suggest that even before I read your questions about it. He does a fantastic job and they are more special because they are made from reclaimed wood and have so much character.
Beautiful quilts. So artistic.

Don's woodwork is fabulous! I'm sure they will easily sell at your fair! Maybe he ought to open his own etsy shop! He would do great!
