Gnome Carving Time Again!

It's time to carve some Gnomes again. This always gets me fired up. I am trying something different this time. I am trying to do a Mrs. Gnome, as you can see. The trick, for me at least, is to keep Mrs. Gnome from looking like a "biker babe". I think this Mrs. Gnome will be carrying a tray of cookies. The larger Gnome has been cut out with a band saw, and the knife carving has started. The two other Gnomes (Mr and Mrs) are just being whittled with my pocket knife out of a 1"x1"x 4" piece of Basswood.
