How much patience does this take?

My mom kept telling me that my Dad was making really nice candleholders.
He is always making something and I could not picture in my mind what she was describing.
WOW!
What a lot of work and patience is in these!




 I managed to keep this one!
It was my favorite.
 And Mom made this table runner for me and brought it in also. 
Gifts for me and not just the princess....woohoo!
Guess I need to clean off the dining room table and display this lovely table runner.
The dining room has become a catch all. 
We look like old people.
Wait.
Maybe we ARE old people!

Super Sunday today.
We will have one of our friends here
JWS is making a 23 pound turkey.
Really?

Oh wow Cathy how wonderful, glad you are keeping at least one, those are so time consuming and even though I use a scroll saw I have no patience for fret work, imagine how many times he had to remove that saw blade and reinsert it, wow, just wonderful work
