More woodcarving pictures

This is a display of our combined work. The display is at Tannehill State Park in Alabama. That is where our club is located. I am no longer a member, but they are still very active and have a show every October.

These painted canes where purchased from me by the Birmingham Museum of Art! They sold them in the museum store. I was ever so thrilled! The one with the darker handle is made from Crepe Myrtle wood cut in my yard. It is the one I am using now that my knees are so bad.

This display is in a mall in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. (Club sponsored.) The big picture in the center is one of my Dad's masterpieces. I think one of his finest works.

These to woodburnings are boxes made to look like books. I enjoyed doing these very much. The one on the left was made for a friend who was very ill and I gave my mom the one on the right.

Thank you Tattingchic. They were fun to do. I need to see if I can find some more of them.
Does being "gobsmacked" hurt? LOL I hope not. Thanks Jane!
Thanks Diane. God has blessed me richly as I am nothing but what He made me!
Thank you Bonnie.
I'm glad you like my work Steph. I hope I can find more boxes.
I love wood too, Gina. It is such good therapy, but not as good as tatting!

I know I do not have to tell you how talented you are, as I have told you many times in person.

I have to agree with whoever said that you have to carve a tatting shuttle!!!

Thank you Madeline. You are still my best cheerleader!
Pamela, thank goodness for gobsmacking! I do still have most of my dad's stuff. I have given things to my niece and nephew as well as other family members. I have cousins on my dad's side that loved him so much. They have lots of offspring so I will be sure they get plenty of heirlooms.
I guess I will have to try at least one shuttle!
Thanks Wickedtats!
