Thank you so much to everyone for leaving such lovely comments are my last post. They are very much appreciated.
I think it is safe to say that Autumn has now arrived in the mountains. The lovely cool weather is here and “Oh what bliss”.
It was even cool enough to get outside in the shed and rev up the beast this week. I wanted to make some wooden fat people. I had a couple of accidents, one was when I sneezed and one was when Martha my ninja Chicken came to see what I was doing and started scratching about in the wood shaving. I tell you..she scares me to death sometimes. She just appears from no where!!
So, to correct the accidental scores I had to keep taking more wood off hence their lack of chubby figures.
I know they look a bit…well….strange!! lol! But, they are ‘armless.
I was really aiming for something like the little Kokeshi Dolls but then no brains here decided to shape them to suit the ideas I had for their painted clothes. So the thinking cap is on as to what I need for their arms now. I think it would have been much easier to leave them one shape and paint the arms in.
This is a sort of work in progress and I will be back with the finished ladies soon.
Thank you for looking.
