Finished all my 2022 Santas before our first snowfall. They are all going to merry homes for Christmas. Now, I’m moving forward with new carving projects.
We’ve had a few warm days now in November, resulting in the large milkweed bugs congregating on the bear for warmth. Good luck with that!
This year the Artist in the Wind, Bob Ross will be at our house to help raise funds for the foodbank between October 20 and October 31. It was challenging constructing Bob for this event!
Through the flying wood chips, sleet, rain and gusty winds, I did have fun carving at the Tara Craftshow for two days. Met a lot of great people.
The challenge was to restore the Tara, Ontario mammoth. The Mammoth had serious rot damage along the length of her back. Two days of back surgery with the assistance of Ken, brought this pachyderm back to her proud self.
