Here are some carvings I finished earlier this summer but could not show you then because they were both gifts.

This first one was of a old Russian lady I seen in a newspaper article, I called it "Babushka", Russian for grandmother. It was a gift to my wife's sister's family, who has two adopted girls from Russia.

The other was for my wife's other sister's family, her husband has firefighter ties.

They were fun to do, and fun to give away. I've got some great in-laws and it's fun surprising them.

They are really different from your usual little guys, but very cool!

My babushka is well loved. That was such a great surprise. What a treasured keepsake she is!

Well, you did it again! But then, your work is always so good. I love that Babushka too! Even her name is cute!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
