I started today off walking the dog in the rain i always find this very therapeutic and relaxing and the dog enjoys it too, it gave me a chance to think about what i am going to do for my next project and work out in my mind the best way of going about it.
most of the materials i require to build this piece i already have so next is to make a few rough drawings to confirm my ideas will work.
If you remember in a earlier post i made a Tudor sewing box that contained a genuine Tudor button this time i want to make another sewing box but include all of the implements, scissors, needle case and such but also include a little treasure!
I just love the tools and implements in the photo above so I'm going to try and recreate as much as i can in bone/Ivory even the needles if possible. The box itself will be walnut with an ivory overlay so making the tools in the same material makes sense.Hopefully this project will keep me occupied between now and the new year and i shall post weekly updates on how things are progressing.
A very warm welcome to my new followers and many thanks for taking the time to follow and read my blog.
Have a great and safe week eveyone. Tony.
