Document box

Almost 2 weeks ago I did a workshop woodcarving,
given by Ann High.
 
It was a wonderful workshop
and I learned a lot!!
I never did any woodcarving before,
so I'm very proud of what I've achieved!!!
 
I only finished 2 sides of the box
at the workshop,
but today I finished the box!
 


 
 
My little friend E-beertje was with me,
but he wasn't allowed to touch
those sharp instruments!!!
 

 
The workshop was held at the home of Annelies de Kort
and she and her husband really spoiled us
both days with delicious soup and pastries.


 
And this is my document box!!!!



 
Hugs, Margriet

Hoi Margriet! Wat is dat kistje mooi geworden, knap werk! Lijkt me leuk zo'n workshop te kunnen volgen, je kunt er zo lekker veel van leren. Bovendien ziet het er zo gezellig uit met alle anderen. E-beertje heeft zeker alles goed gezien vanaf zijn plekkie eerste rang ;)
Groetjes, Ilona

I'm sitting here breathless - wow, this is incredible, what a stunning success for a first attempt. A wonderful piece! Oh, and btw - I'm convinced E-beertje had at least a paw at the tools when you were not looking at him... ;O)
