Well another show has come and gone. It was great to see old friends and make some new. Forecast of snow kept some people away. But those who ventured out had a good time. I received two second place ribbons, and sold two carvings. But the best part of the show was watching my wife win her first ribbon. She has been woodburning for awhile but never entered anything into the competition. As always the competition was strong. This is a top notch show and if you are in the area I encourage you to attend next year.

Just finished the "Lady" in time for the Kansas City Woodcarvers Show this Friday and Saturday. She was carved from basswood and is mounted on a cherry base. and measures 7 1/2" tall. As I mentioned in a previous post, this is a pattern from Ian Norbury. I'm pretty happy with how she turned out. Female faces are more difficult to carve, at least for me.
