Cranberry Woods is the name of our Etsy Shop and also the name of this blog. We're Bob and Diana and in the pages of this blog we hope you get to know us and the things we like to share with our readers. Come visit us often.
I made this small box for Diana about a year ago, but she doesn't have a need for it anymore. I drew a sewing machine on top because she sews. It could be used to store miscellaneous notions, or bobbins, or machine tools, or other things. The lid slides to open the box and is a little different than my usual boxes. If you are interested in it, I will be posting it in our Etsy shop soon so come take a look. -Bob
I had painted this box with a morning glory design, but didn't care for the way it turned out. So I decided to put a Quilt Theme on it instead. This is a "Windmill" Design that I think most quilters would recognize. I spruced it up a little with white dots and I think it came out fairly well. --Bob
Just made this box last night. It was tricky to figure out, but after a few trials and errors got it to work out. I really enjoy doing these "Quilt Boxes". I just hope they are popular enough for people to buy. This is a small box, but it is fully lined in a cream color velvety type fabric, good for storing jewery or other keepsakes. You can see details on it in our Etsy Shop. Just click the link at right to go to our shop. --Bob
Here is a pic of a Recipe Box I am currently working on. I am making it with a "grape" motif design. I still have to do a little work on it, like paint the word "recipes" on the front. And I need to affix the hardware. But I thought I would show a picture of one of my works in progress. -- Bob
Diana made these mug rugs the other day and we just put them up for sale in our Etsy Shop. She is trying something new with mug rugs. Previously she has focused on dress making and table linens, but likes the concept of mug rugs, which is new for her. Come visit our shop and take a look at them.
It has been over a year since I posted anything in this blog. I thought I'd start posting again. I am starting with a picture of my latest project, a Quilt Design inspired box that I just put up for sale in our Etsy Shop. I did it in shades of blue and think it came out pretty good. It is a design that would appeal to either a man or a woman I think. I made the box in our workshop and decided to go with a quilt design because my daughter is a long arm quilter and she inspired me. I plan to make more quilt inspired pieces and I just hope they sell. -- Bob
