Carving Hitty 8 and 9

I first posted about Hitty 8 here.  I put her away for a while to 'think' about.

I started Hitty 9 a few days ago and have been working on her a little at a time to save my arm and hand from getting too much pain.  This is working out much better for me, although it does take longer.  But I am enjoying this process to see a little more emerge each time.

I have done a little more work on Hitty 8 as well - trying to round out her face a little more and adding her features.


They are getting there.  More work was done on Hitty 9's limbs today.


They are starting to show their characters.

  1. It is fascinating to watch a blank become a doll :-)

  2. YOU are the talented one! Awesome! I love seeing how each one is developing their own character and look. I have tried carving and I just can't manage it. It's very hard. You make it look easy. Are you thinking of names for them yet or waiting until they tell you? :o)

    1. I will wait until they tell me their names, although one will be going to a friend as a swap gift. :-) If she likes it of course!

  3. Good for you to keep carving even a little at a time! The girls will thank you for bringing them out!
