We'll see if the girls find the fire ring, and see what they have to say.
What this selection means, is that "Tisme" will receive five (5) extra chances to win the giveaway. Additionally she'll receive a carved gift for her idea.
Now, off to create.

The "roses" will fray more as it is washed again.
And yes! I did forget to put a border on the quilt.

However, due to continuing problems with BLOGGERS ability to keep listing the current Followers of blogs, you must tell me if you are a Follower, or have just become a Follower; just in case BLOGGER drops the names.
The persons suggestion, that I select to make will receive five (5) chances, plus a small carving. In case of ties, the earliest comment and suggestion posted will prevail.
The folks who have already left comments and suggestions are all ready in.
The comments and suggestions will be collected until August 31, 2009. The piece to make will be selected September 1, 2009.
The drawing for the giveaway will be on December 1, 2009.
"The word "relaxing" was just corrected from the initial way in which I miss-typed it. The miss-type was "relazing". Maybe I have a new word that more accurately describes my actions.

My question is, do others do the same thing?
Since I do this my mind tells me to drill a small hole into the hand wheel and attach a "turning knob".
Anyone have any thoughts on this???
Thanks, Tom H

This slide presentation is about 2 minutes long. It's a step-by-step demonstration on how to carve the 5 minute wizard. Just click on the arrow.
How about some feedback/comments on whether these slide presentations are helpful in seeing how to carve the wizard.

Here's the back side of another Gnome that I am doing.
The front of the same Gnome. I use my pocket knife, and can carve one in about one hour. Course, then I have to paint it. So this is a little project, that while very much fun, is not one that you'd want to try to carve a bunch of to give away at a carving demonstration.

The Noah's Ark and animals is old and has kind of faded and shows it's age. But my Whittlin Gnome is new and bright. I still have some background to add to my Gnome.
Now's your chance to leave a comment and tell me how foolish I am........

My granddaughter was roller skating, and the flower girls went in to get on their skates too. As you can see the youngest prefers to skate in a tutu. Well that's what she wears most of the time. Either that or a princess outfit. A photo of note is the one where the oldest has taken all the knee and elbow protectors and rearranged them to protect her bottom. And yes there is one on the front too.
