Location: Horse Shoe, NC, United States

We moved to western North Carolina in the fall of 2010, and bought a house with an existing workshop (16’x’20’). The last person to use the shop had a small refrigerator for beer, TV, and big easy chair in it, so I’ve spent my limited free time making it mine. To date, I’ve torn out most of the old cabinets, replaced the light fixtures, installed a plywood subfloor, repainted, installed a heat source, resurfaced the cabinets I kept, put up some pegboard and shelving and lumber racks, and built a workbench. Now I’m in the middle of building a Stefang inspired shop cart. Someday the shop will be operational, but in the meantime I’m making a lot of mistakes and (hopefully) learning a lot.

I’d like to thank all of you for the welcome.

My wife has belonged to several Russian-speaking embroidery forums for sometime and receives a lot of pleasure from them. This is my first experience with forums and am thinking this one might become habit forming.

I’ve already improved my skills from reading the blogs.

My long-time friend and fishing and hunting buddy past away awhile ago, and I’ve missed the camaraderie.
