Default Added 2 Pictures to Gallery

Hello,

For anyone who may be interested, I just listed 2 Santas in the Holiday Gallery. One is wrapped in a Halloween quilt and the other is wrapped in a Fall Harvest quilt. These were probably the most fun (and most work!) I've ever done on a carving, but I learned so much too.

You have some great detail on those Santa's. I particularly like the Halloween theme.

Ahhhh Jill - super stuff.
I'm jealous of the way your Santas keep going ... up by leaps and bounds.
I'm thinking of carving something else - lol

Jillsy .. Those are some of the best detailed Santas I have seen .. The Quilts painting are great .. I love the Halloween one and the painting is super with all the detailed pumpkins and ghost ..

A excellent job on carving and painting both ..

Thank you guys and gals! I did the Fall one first and then got the idea for the Halloween one. After having practiced with the Fall one, I felt more confident and pushed myself further to try and get more details in the Halloween quilt.

My next carving goal is to learn to carve eyes.

Thanks so much again!

Jillsy, you know how much I love your Santas. These two are no exception! Keep up the great work!

By the way, my next carving goal is to learn how to carve eyes, too!
