Cleaning Day

I was cleaning today and found these things. I had carved a few years ago . I'm going to try and do some more carving this summer. Out side it is so messy.
I have allot packed away for different holiday.
I have a small Christmas tree with just carved ornament . I use at Christmas.

Yes I did cut myself, my left hand three fingers 27 stitches. trying to cut a boot tip off and the knife slipped.
We where at a carving class , my friend was falling off a chair and I tried to help her and I got cut again that time 3 stitches .

This is my find today

I used allot for gifts Fun to tie on gifts. Bears kind of a Santos .There is a head and boots, buffalo, cowboy, ornaments

Bears Santa's cat head and a head ,boots
for a doll I think I will finish it . The face of the man, is on bark.

I carved a doll for each granddaughter. They are not very cute.
But very different.

The dolls hands, boots ,head are carved the body is cloth. They are painted with acrylic
paint .

It is fun to put a few accessories on them like the glasses
I'm going to find some more things for them.Has to be small.

They where all fun to do. Hope you enjoy.

Will keep posted when I carve.
