Z's Whittling Lesson #2
Back at it, first thing this AM. Zinnie finished up her very first whittling. She did the complete owl herself, except for the stop cuts. All of the cuts were the "Thumb Push Cuts to the Stop Cut". Again, band aids not necessary. I am planning on checking the garden center for some kid sized garden gloves, to rework into carving gloves. Zinnie is happy and I am happy. We decided that 20 minute sessions were better than 30 minute sessions. Zinnie wants to do some more owls. She even said "practice-practice-practice"/
Dahli, Zinnia little sister could not be left out so we decided on some soap carving for her. I knocked the sharp cutting edge off an old paring knife for Dahli to use. She decided on a Polar Bear. As you can see, she did great too.
