Carving in Oregon

Three New Girls

Three New Girls

Constance and her human, and two other carvers and their Hittys went to Oregon last week.  We attended a carving retreat  hosted by TC Vollum.  The result of four days, many woodchips and a few blisters, was  a new Hitty carved by each of us, except for the participant who carved bodies and  limbs for two resin shoulderheads.  The shoulderhead dolls unfortunately had to leave for home before these three girls were ready for the “end of retreat” portrait.

In intervals between chipping and sanding, there were several opportunities to visit the nearby beach. Various Hittys took full advantage…here they are studying the sea anemones…

We are rich!

We are rich!

And agreed that the wonders and riches of life are infinite…

  1. I feel very placid after all the work you put into these lovely, lovely dolls. Thanks for such beautiful scenery and a glimpse of the beautiful creations.

    • Just the girl on the left in the bottom picture is mine – the others were carved by one of the other carvers (on the right) and our host, tc (the middle girl)…but thank you for my part…it was wonderful fun!

  2. I love the different personalities of each one that are reflected in their faces. I think that is important when carving dolls. Wish we could have bumped into each other. The ocean is only an hour and a half away from me. It’s so beautiful! laura

  3. Oh such wonderful photos…the girls are all so cute. I also love how each face has such personality. And of course a glimpse of Constance in her shawl was a delight. The adventures on the shore made me smile. Riches indeed!!
