New critter..............


What do you think? Isn't he cute? My husband carved him for me! The wood is called Paduke and it is naturally red. I haven't thought of an appropriate bear name yet. For now he is snooping around my knitting essentials and keeping me company. Maybe a sheep next!! I have actually asked him to carve me a folk art nativity scene. That will be so special and likely a family heirloom!

Thanks for leaving a guess as to the purpose of the upside down laundry basket. It isn't a trap, but you were close! The answer is on my current post. Your husband's carving is precious!! Does he do woodworking in general or carving exclusively? Th reddish wood is luminous.

Clever husband! If this was an Australian bear, he'd be called Blue (or Bluey) - anything red is known as blue!! (mainly redheads!)
