Back To Whittling & Carving With The Girls

The weather has cooled off a bit and the girls are back at learning some new skills.  The first photo shows Zinnia with her carving knife working on a little Penguin.  She's wearing her Kevlar carving glove, as she always does.

In this photo Zinnia is finishing up another 5 minute Owl.

I couldn't resist adding this photo of Zinnia.  I'd say she is concentrating.

Here's what Zinnia has completed so far.  This after three 20 minute sessions.

Now it's Dahlia's turn!

Dahlia is carving soap.  We thought she was a wee bit young to handle a razor sharp carving knife.  She never complained about her older sister being allowed to use a real knife.  I like to think it's because she is using a real knife instead of a plastic knife or worse yet a Popsicle stick.  However Dahlia's knife has a dull blade - it just cannot cut her.

I hope you can recognize that Dahlia has carved a Bear.  In fact she said it's a Grizzly Bear.  I think she's happy with her results.
