I guess the good news is I'd been busy... messing with flowers - until the warm weather left in Nov. - and camping :1st trip of the year is Easter - last is Halloween - and carving for Christmas gifts - Doane in the summer and MO for a wedding in the fall.
Took a class with the group doing a cottonwood bark tree house (it's not done but NEXT UP) Took another class with Bill & Trudy to carve a cowboy - that dang nerve and the barometer don't alway let me carve when I'd like to... thus.. the cowboy - (who's turned into a biker with a do-rag because I couldn't get the hat to look like what it needed to be in my mind's eye) is waiting for attention.
I have a Kaleidoscope 4/6 ths done - and it has a base too.. a Santa that only needs fur and hair and painted.. a bark house that only needs detailed & one last tree I've not seen yet that will hold a swing - (for Colette who purchased the 4 for her kids years ago).
No new projects.. untill I complete what I've begun. It will be OK if I work on more than one of them during a given time period... just NO NEW PROJECTS... that's the only resolution I made.. and it was emmm last weekend after I finished that 2nd walking stick!
Happy New Year Carvers!
