Have you all seen the really cute camels, donkey and horse?
Over at Catholic Icing, there is the cutest post on making wood animals for Saint peg dolls. I knew as soon as I saw the email, my kids would go bonkers if I could get them made by the one and only Grandpa Fisher! I also got lucky and found a Melissa and Doug castle at a consignment sale for $40 for their Saints to live in and celebrate mass in a few weeks ago (again another great Catholic Icing idea with the mini mass kit).
Grandpa completed this assignment pretty fast. I am waiting for my opportunity to pick them up discreetly and get them sanded and painted. He did say the camels were a bit of a challenge- as indicated by the post. But overall he said it wasn't too bad. I have no idea what that tool is called that he used to cut them out and I think they are around an inch and a half thick. I don't know what kind of wood it was either. But I can find out and edit that all later in this post.
This was a text he sent last week to me from his workshop. I can't wait to get them all home!
