Since I have been in kind of a carving slump, I decided to whittle some Gnomes to try to get out of the slump. I think it's working. This little pair seems to be doing the trick. Papa Gnome looks just as pleased to be getting some cookies, as Momma Gnome is to have baked them for him. These little Gnomes take so little time to whittle, that I've got several of them going at the same time. I'll finish painting them tomorrow.
