Getting "lost" in your carving!

More whittlings from small scraps.  The pocket knife is for size reference.  

My most enjoyable carvings are those in which I become completely "lost" in the actual carving.  I become so focused and absorbed in the effort that I am not aware of anything else going on around me.  For me, this means a small carving.  A piece so small that I have to hold it very close to my eyes to see the knife blade make the cuts.  So small that it takes total concentration.   This for me is fun!  It might be fun for you too!
