Making hazel pegs

After building in the morning, I spent yesterday afternoon sitting out in the sun making hazel clothes pegs. It was another beautiful day. I have decided to make a bundle of pegs to sell on the pedlars tray.
Today's going to be much the same, build in the morning, walk the dogs then make pegs in the afternoon. I am hoping something will arrive in the post today which will enable me to photograph the next notecards too. Busy, busy, busy :)

Love the pegs BG. It's great to see rustic and traditional crafts still being made and in use.

We used to call them dolly pegs when I was a kid, I found some for sale a few weeks ago in a local shop and could not resist buying them, they last far longer than the plastic rubbish which is sold, but I rather bought them for craft use, not too sure what I will do with them, but maybe for pegging up my herbs for drying.

Anne, I have been using mine for washing and they have been really good, even in the wind. I think they look much nicer than plastic ones. It's a good idea to use them for herb drying, infact I bet they look lovely
