I was afraid you would all think I had died or something! I've been working on a "secret project" that is now finished! (Still a secret!)
Here are some more pictures of my woodcarving days. The one of the shore birds is just woodburning, but I like the way it looks. The bulldog cane is my husband's. He got his master's degree from Samford University and they are the bulldogs. The crepe myrtle is carved from wood cut from my yard. We trimmed the crepe myrtles back and saved every piece of wood that we could carve or turn on the wood lathe. We coated each piece with sand and sealer, (can and brush, not spray.) Let them sit for a couple of days and then started carving. They had to be carved green as they are so hard when they dry that a knife won't cut them.
I hope you enjoy the pictures. Maybe some tatting soon.
