« Part 1: Making the Commitment Part 2 of Yin Yang series Part 3: It's all about the curl »

Jan 6/10

Well… I have the idea of what I am going to make.. now it is getting down to doing it.
I’m in the process of getting new glasses (since I’ve had difficulties seeing the fine details when making pens etc). It probably is a safety issue, really… so I’ve decided to wait until the glasses come in before I start the Yin Yang project.

I may not get the glasses until the 20th of January. That still leaves lots of time, really, to do the project but it’s not my style—I like to get things done and then sit back and relax.

And so.. my Yin Yang is on “pause” for a couple of weeks.

I too had some ideas for this contest but with me not being able to get in the shop with my broken ankle, I may totally miss this one again. But I’m still hoping. BTW, you can borrow my spectacles…...............LOL

you’ll just have to get your yin-yang together in something you can do in the house!
carving?

and the temperature is another drawback.. our basement is freezing .. brr… hopefully I can just do little bits downstairs and bring the wood up here where I can do most of the work
or change my plan entirely to something I can do here where it is warm.

As always you have gotten my attention but you are still being rather mysterious about the project. I guess we will just have to be patient and waitfor you to divulge the details. This is something like the shows that would end with To Be Continued…....... :)

We will be anxiously awaiting your next yin yang blog Debbie. Working in the blind isn’t really difficult though. I do it all the time.

Looking forward to the project Debbie. Personally, I find my projects look better when I can see and everyone else is blind :)
