The next month I will be carving some things to be for sale at a craft sale the first week in December. I want to have a better display of affordable items than last year. We live in a smaller town where we know a lot of the people here. It is nice to be able to visit with people we don't see to often. Last year I was able to barter for a jar of huckleberry jam which tasted very good. I enjoyed myself and it was worth my time.
The country bears are carved from 2 inch square by 4 inches tall basswood. The profile is cut so you can carve a variety of clothes and arms. The front was cut around the head only.
