This is the finished project from my Wednesday WOW last month. I really enjoyed working with the wood. I played a bit with smaller blocks but probably would not have done much more.
Except . . . I went to the Woodcarver's Show this weekend. Oh my! Oh me! Long story short, I came home with some tools and lots of inspiration. And here is what I've done in the last two days!
This guy is about 4-inches tall and made from a local type of cedar. The wood is so pretty to carve!
And this fellow is just under 2-inches and is pine, I think. The wood is softer, but it also splits very easily. That's why he's lop-sided (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!). I may decide to make a body for this one.
What's next? I bought a magazine and there are some interesting Santa Clauses. Oh yes! I do have a quilt top just about finished and a few other projects on the table. I need more hours in the day. Let's see, I don't do housework or cook already. Maybe I can cut out sleeping!!!!
