xmas is over

12-26-2010 06:34 PM by superdad | 1 comment »

Well I didn’t finish much. My appendix acted up and I spent 3 days back and forth to the hospital before christmas. Luckily I got out on the 23rd and though I was in great pain I was able to finish the sewing of the bedding for the doll cradles and the wife painted them for me. Of course she spent the whole time worrying that she wasn’t doing a good enough job. I had to keep reminding her that they are toys and don’t have to be perfect. So the cradles got finished. I ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #206: The Holiday Continues

12-26-2010 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

It was a very nice day yesterday. Although there was no snow on the ground, my practical side got the best of me and I rationalized that it was far better to drive on dry pavement than in the snow and ice. The Mustang has been parked and won’t see the road until the spring thaw, but even with a more practical vehicle, it was still better to be safe this way than have the romanticism of a white Christmas. When I awoke this morning, there seems to be a hint of a dusting of snow on the ...

One of my favourite blogs, the Flemish American recently posted about the Flemish origins of Santa Clause. If you follow this link and scroll down to the 4th picture (i recommend reading this quality blog, though), you can see Santa in his workshop. The workbench looks a bit English, because of the apron, no?

Christmas Literature

12-26-2010 05:10 AM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

I am overwhealmed this year with new literature for Christmas. I asked for some books and shared my amazon wish list with family. What I got was Handplane Essentials from “The Schwarz” (my hero), The Handplane Book by Garret Hack, and James Krenov’s second and third books (I already have and love the first). I’m about halfway through Chris’s book and can’t wait to read them all. Merry Christmas to all of you on LJ’s and thanks for the inspiratio...
