We have been busy finishing up the winter activities such as dipping our beeswax candles. We always light a candle for our supper meal and we use our own hand dipped candles. They are made from organic beeswax that Mike barters from the apiary just one mile down the road. He helps out with maintaining the hives and processing the honey. Our plan is to buy a hive of our own now that he feels comfortable with the process.
In order to dip multiple candle pairs at once, I needed a place to hang them as I alternated dipping them. I came up with this very simple stand using two logs and a scrap piece of wood on top. I am also busy sewing wool felt bunnies both for our children’s Easter baskets and for sale in our shop. The pattern for these cuties came from the spring 2009 issue of Living Crafts.
Warm wishes, Tonya
