New patterns: Ostrich, Nuthatch, Chickadee, and Cardinal

I just got back from a business trip where I only took carry-on luggage- so no papercutting or woodcarving possible. Had to find something to fill my time in the evenings, so I have a bunch of new patterns that I finished drawing..

New ornamental carvings

Days are geting colder, and I am spending more time carving.. :)
Two ornaments in basswood and butternut, and a basswood Santa pen.

Older pieces embellished, rebacked, and rematted

I have been going through some of my older, less detailed work and 'embellishing' the pieces by adding a lot of finer details to each piece- here are 3 of my latest completed ones.. Maine Coon Cat, Basset Hound, and Australian Cattle Dog. The Maine Coon cat is currently available on Etsy.

It is that time of year- I need to get slides ready for next year's show apps so I finally get around to a photo-shoot with my recent cottonwood bark carvings..
