Al l of a sudden, this year’s Shows, Classes , Carve-Ins and carving-projects  are over! The Holidays have arrived with Thanksgiving and will finally be over too with the New year 2011! We are “officially” in our annual “Winter Hiatus”, a time for re-charging our batteries and reflecting over the year past with a view towards  doing even better (not more) next year.  It’s a time when you’re not on my calendar so much and I’m not on yours so much either. We’ll  enjoy re-engaging with the whole ball of works again in the Spring.  While on our down-time and not having to work  around class-schedules  on the calendar, I have a lengthy list of former class-projects to finish-up.  All of these are former class-projects that were set-aside so I could commence the next classes coming along.  I’ll just mention the one I’m currently working on is the Eastern Bluebird. I have the best intentions of taking some “world-class” instruction on habitat along the way. Our Carving Year always commences with the Miami Valley Wood-carver’s Show in Middletown, OH. ,on the first weekend of March each year. I’m honored to have again invited to be a judge at that show. Our first classes always commence on the second weekend of March. We expect to do five shows again next year.  I realize that more than a few of our Hamonhaus Carvers also have a few unfinished class-projects to complete. Please be sure to be in touch with me to set a mutually convenient time for you to come by.  That applies to any painting, as well. Please remember to keep those bird feeders filled.

Happy birding and carving,  Bill
