Christmas carving

No, not the turkey !  He's still a work in progress, but I think you can see who is now ...



Our Christmas tree acquires a new decoration most years, and has become a kind of chronicle of our lives; German decorations from when SIL lived there, a star decorated with a camel from a friend's time in Dubai, and various things crafted by DS when he was younger.  Santa here is set to be this year's new addition - or maybe next year's, depending on how much free time I get !

Instructions from the woodworker's institute.

I remember at Uni being taught about the "just in time" approach to manufacturing to avoid the cost of holding things in stock, and I used to joke that I operated on my own, improved, version, the "only slightly late" principle !

Anyway, true to form, Santa here was finished and hung on the tree - on Boxing Day ... Embarassed
