Hitty Coal Teaches Hitty Petal to Bring Another
Out of the Wood
Hitty Coal, having spent considerable time in the Sara
decided to give Hitty Petal a private lesson
in enabling yet more Hittys to come out of the wood.
Shallow cuts, shallow cuts.
Carving is tense work, and Hitty Coal gives Hitty Petal a
much-needed shoulder massage.
Hitty Petal pays close attention to the tips and instruction
from Hitty Coal. She has always wanted to learn
better carving techniques.
"A curved file is perfect for smoothing out the eyes," explains
"We're almost finished," says Hitty Petal, steadying the New
Hitty Coal and Hitty Petal proudly pose with the
new Hittys they have helped emerge!

that much faster!"
