While waiting for the hinges to arrive (did you notice I didn't mention the word 'patiently'?) I decided I could finish another project that has been sitting on my desk for too long.
Remember I did a workshop with Ann High back in March at the Arnhem show? Well if you don't, look back at this page: It's been a long time. I showed you this picture amongst other photographs:
That was the beginning of my wood carving experience. Now I have finally plucked up the courage to finish it, and after a lot more carving, detailing, glueing, staining and waxing, this is the result:

I am quite proud of the result and rightfully so I hope. ;-) Now if anybody could point out to me where I can buy steamed pear I would be thrilled, because then I could do some more of this wonderful work. I have really fallen for the carving. Love it!!
And before I go I would also extend another warm welcome to Lady Jane, who's my latest follower. Thanks to Rosamargarita I now know she has a blog: For the Love of Miniatures. Go and check it out.
That's all for today folks. See you next time.
