My morning has been made with the arrival of a very special parcel from Massachusetts in the US. These eating spoons and a tiny mini scoop, made by the incredibly talented and experienced carver, @emmet_van_driesche , are stunning in their simplicity and beauty. I've admired Emmet's work and work ethic for a long time and am delighted to finally own some of his spoons. I really like to support other carver's work and I have quite a wish list... but you know, budget, so these things take time. . So I tried out the cherry eating spoon this morning, and it's as functional as it is lovely to look at - just the right amount of crank and ideal shape in the bowl. . I'm going to make a pot of soup soon especially so I can use the sweet chestnut eater - Emmet didn't know this before but I'm also left handed and the asymmetrical rounded bowl is perfect for me (and soup)! Lefties make great spoons for fellow lefties 🤚 . I'll post some pictures of the mini scoop separately because it's just precious. . Thank you Emmet, I love these spoons. As a carver I admire your craftsmanship and as a person who eats I can't rate them highly enough.👌 . And if you haven't seen @emmet_van_driesche 's work before do have a look at his page - he's a prolific and skilled spoon carver but among other things also scythes and runs a Christmas tree farm. And takes great photos. 👍🌲 . . . . #spooncarving#handcarved#woodenspoons#handmade#madeinmassachusetts#madeintheusa#emmetvandriesche#sloyd#byaxeknifeandhand#maker#makersmovement#woodcraft#greenwoodcarving#simplethingsmadebeautiful#supportsmall#seekthesimplicity

One last shot of my mustard wall hanging, in its new spot. Yep, there are only 2 photo worthy corners in my entire home 😫. But I love this space and I'm slowly filling it with bits and pieces I've collected from independent makers and local artists.
I'm working on some slightly different little "friends" at the moment. They are a wee bit bigger than my usual "friends" and I think they should have matching sleeping bags, but that might be a job for tomorrow! This ones just a prototype - excuse the "more rustic than usual" stitches on his little face! They'll be ready for all your Christmas gifting, by the way! 🎄🎄🎄
