Nina's Stick




Whilst I was on craft camp Craig took the girls to the bush for the night with Nana and Pa. Nana is determined that age and dodgy ankles won't inhibit her walking up to the top of the ridge (at least partly because that's the only place she can get mobile reception and she is plugged in to technology, my mother-in-common-law). She invested in some fancy hiking sticks and Nina adopted the idea for herself. She chose a likely looking bit of wood and polished it up with Craig, carved her name in it and gave it a coat of varnish. I had a bit of leather that we threaded through as a strap. I'm quite jealous of this piece actually. Isn't it lovely?

  2. That's lovely. My middle made himself a stick (sorry, STAFF) once and it is equally pleasing to the eye and touch. His doesn't have his name on it but it has decorative metalwork. Tres posh.
