Merry Fishmas...

This is a simple folk art decoy I carved and painted for Megan's parents
for Christmas. It was fun. I hadn't done one of these in a long time.

I haven't forgotten about the fish I promised some of you.
I have a lot of the carving done, but you'll just have to be patient.

That's AWESOME! I'd love to try some carving. That looks really professional. I love it. What wood did you use?

Have you ever tooled leather? I'd like to do that also.

VA- It's carved out of basswood, a nice, soft wood for carving. I have not tooled leather, but I have been called a "tool" on occasion.

I love these. Can you add me to the list? I don't mind being last and receiving it when I'm 80. It'll give me something to anticipate.

Your carvings are so cool! It's somehing I've always wanted to do but I don't believe I have the touch.

That's really impressive. I've taken on many a craft project in my time, but I've never tried carving anything. How long did it take to finish that, btw?
