It’s that time of the year where I really get busy with my carving! I finished the birdhouse contest entry and worked on some twisted crosses. I had company this past week for my daughter’s wedding and just needed small stuff to fill in some time. I sold my last Santa ornament and gave away three canes and an elf as gifts to different relatives, so I need to get stocked back up for Christmas! This is just a skinny Santa ornament that I made up as I carved it. I like just carving freestyle, simple things like this and they sell OK too. The carving club starts meeting again in September and I’m going to a carving seminar also in September. Starting to get busy!

Looks good except the eyes look a bit beady to me, Santas usually look friendlier with bigger eyes. I like everything else about this carving though. However that is just my opinion.
