Thanks to Lew and Larry I managed to get my cheese boards done without the scratches! The center board with the two chevron rows I’m calling an Amish cheese board. When I was a little girl there was an Amish lady, Mrs. Swearingen, who taught me how to needlepoint and do other needle work. She taught me that you had to do your very best work to please God, but you never want to be absolutely perfect. She taught me to skip a stitch somewhere that was not easily seen, so as to not disrespect God and to keep our pride in check. I honestly don’t know if that is a true Amish thing to do, I suppose I could Google it, but I’d prefer to keep that childhood memory in tact.
So after that long explanation – if you look closely enough you can see where I let a chevron joint slip and it’s not lined up as it should be. No way to fix it now, so I’m calling it Henri’s Amish Cheese Board. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
All three of my bosses enjoy having parties so I think these three boards should do the trick.
Thanks again to Lew and Larry for the help.
Happy holidays everyone!
