« Part 3: A Pause .. Part 4 of Shoe Carving Challenge series Part 5: Remembering... »

Oct. 5/10

I guess I have a bug .. the bug.. the carving bug… Now, I’m dreaming about it!

No, I didn’t work on the shoe. In my dream I picked up a piece of firewood and there staring at me was a wood spirit beckoning to be released from the wood. In my dream it took me some time to figure out what I was looking at and then I realized that I was to carve it.

:)

that’s it.. a short blog this morning. Not very “deep” but I thought you might get a smile from it.

Debbie!

This has been a very interesting read.

I’m sorry I’m not participating in this challenge. I have a personal challenge that I shouldn’t put off much longer. I have too many unfinished things that I should be doing. That’s a huge challenge all by itself.

I’ll be watching the progress of this challenge though.

I had a dream that the leaves were all beautiful colors one minute then the trees were nearly bear the next. I wonder what that means. Maybe time is going by too quickly for me.

I got my bits last night Debbie! I am now waiting for the moment to call me to begin the real thing. :) I can’t wait and I will know when it is the right time.

I will keep you posted.

Are you wearing a mask when you dremel? That sawdust does funny things to your head. I’m joking, but I know exactly what you mean.

I’m with Lee, the more pictures the better.

Debbie! You may see a shoe carving someday, but with hand tools.

Power carving is too much work ”Stressful” for me. Chisels are for us old timers. <(:O}&

It is pretty neat to see you getting pumped up about carving! It is exciting to see results when you are carving something, almost magical in ways, and it is always a personal and unique creation, a way of expression. Looking forward to seeing your pictures!

It seems funny to me that since I posted about my carving class alt of you are starting to carve or post more pics of carving. Or is it coincidence. But I know how you feel msdebbie
