Those that have read this blog for some time know that I eat my breakfast at a diner in town. I also whittle during this daily breakfast time. I can get away with this, in part, because when one whittles or carves small there's not much mess.
Seeing that Christmas is creeping up, it's time to whittle some simple and fast Santa pins.
I have found that many folks prefer these small Santa pins to the larger ones. I've had them used as tie tacs, lapel pins, and on hats. I can usually get 2 or 3 whittled during coffee - unless we're talkin politics. Then the fellers don't like to see a knife in my hand.
