Wooden shoes

My Dad carved these and brought them here for me to paint for him. They actually fit me. So much detail and so much work in carving all this.

And the hummingbirds? Not my favorite bird, but they are graceful looking.
And my wool quilt that I started. My Mom got this pattern for me for Christmas and it was shown on a medium color background, but I could just see it on black, so I am trying one block on the black to see if I like it before going on.




A group of us went to see Menopause, the Musical yesterday. What fun! I have not laughed that hard in quite awhile. If you get the chance, go see it. No matter what age, it is funny, we have women from their 20's to 80 and everyone found it just as funny.

Wow, your dad's craving is exceptional! What a sweet daddy! Love how you painted them as well. I think the black background on the quilt block looks fabulous.

Those shoes are beautiful....My Dad used to love to carve birds...it was amazing to me that he could take a block of wood and turn it into a bird. My Dad is no longer with me ....I have some of the birds he carved. Treasure those shoes your fathers hands so skillfully crafted.

Wow, those shoes are just absolutely beautiful. The craftmanship is just amazing. I can't even imagine how much time that must have taken to hollow them out and the detailed carving. The painting that you've done is perfect too! Is your dad for sale by any chance? :)

The carved shoes are lovely, Cathy! I saw Menopause the Musical last year...what a hoot! Glad you enjoyed it, too.
Oh the quilt square is just beautiful! Good luck with the entire quilt. It should be very beautiful and sooooo striking on black.

Cool wooden shoes!

I LOVE the shoes Cathy, as a huge hummingbird fan I think they are beautiful! I can see where you got your talent from! Stick to the black, I think it's perfect. Menopause has been here a couple times, and I can't get anyone to go with me to see it, so next time I'll go alone!

Wow! It always amazes me at how talented people are.
The shoes are a real work of art and will be a real treasure to pass down from generation to generation.
What beautiful work by both you and your dad.
