This morning I mentioned the idea of wood carving or whittling to husband...hmm, he said, looking mildly interested. I set him up with some appropriate videos on youtube, then left him to it while I got on with making soup for lunch (roasted red pepper and homegrown tomatoes, yummy).
Looks like success! He found several videos of wood carving, some with stencils, on blocks of wood, using a small dremel multitool thing - he's hooked! Must be, he spent an hour showing me things and telling me all about them...I'm just glad he's finally found something that seems to really interest him. He's placed an order for some tools, and has sourced some small blocks of wood - a neighbour has loads from a home project he's doing. I'm very pleased he's so keen.
We're off up to the Quantocks dog walking with friends this afternoon, it's sunny and fairly warm, if a bit breezy.
