As I went to fall into bed last night, I walked into my room and immediately noticed how crisp and cool the air was. It would definitely be a night for blankets (and perhaps a cat or two) to keep me warm. This was the first night of the season that felt this way. After a lovely, warm and sunny day, the night temperatures were cool and crisp and on the brink of chilly. Fall is approaching, and it is my favorite time of year. Overall yesterday I had a pretty good day. I got some chores ...
It is so quiet out this morning that I needed to check if we even had the windows open. They were of course, and if I listen carefully I can hear the quiet flutter of the birds in the near by tree. It appears that everyone slept in this Saturday morning. And what a morning it is! Still and calm and only a few white wispy clouds high in a bright blue sky. The temperature is perfect – I imagine it is about 70 degrees right now – and the humidity is low and at a comfortable lev...
I am terrible at keeping up with posting my projects. I always try to wait until they are up on the site, and then I find I am usually buried deep into the next project and forget about it completely. While many of you read and keep up with the blog here every day, there are also many more who don’t and come to me and ask to find something that I had made an entry about previously. I never mind that, but it makes me realize that I do need to keep my gallery on Lumberjocks up to date...
Today’s post will be fairly brief. I need to get to it and write and send out the newsletter from our site today announcing the new patterns. I had a really good response from people yesterday and many are anxious to get their copies. I am really happy about this, as I also really like the new designs. I think they are both fun to cut and nice to look at once they are done. The four new patterns for the Damask Silhouette plaques are as follows: SLD434 Songbirds: SLD435 Ki...
What an incredible weekend I had! It was a combination of accomplishing, relaxing, beautiful weather, good food, a Saturday night “date” and even some beach thrown in. I can think of little more that would have made it much better. It started off like any other weekend. However, the weather was absolutely supreme. It was sunny and warm, without being either too hot or humid, and it made Saturday just an all around pleasant day. Keith had to run into work for a couple of hour...
I finished all of my cutting yesterday. That was a big plus. Cutting out nine plaques of this type in under two days was an accomplishment that I was satisfied with. I had initially hoped that I would have these all oiled and finished by today, but as usual, things came up and I need to sand and oil them today. I should have better pictures tomorrow. I am pleased with these designs. While they are not really difficult, some of the motifs do present a little bit of a challenge. I think...
Yesterday I really remained focused and accomplished even more than I thought I would. After all was said and done, I am finished cutting six of the nine plaques for the next set of patterns. It just goes to show how much work I can accomplish when I set my mind to it! Keith was called by his former job and asked if he would help out and do some part time work for a couple of days. Since he was pretty much caught up with the magazine and even has some new patterns ready for the next sit...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1095: The Holiday Issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts is Out!
Good day to you all! I spent the much of the day yesterday getting things lined up for my next set of patterns. Hopefully, my new design will be put up on the site later on today, although I don’t think we will do another newsletter just yet. Keith has some new things that he is working on as well and we would like to wait until we have a few things to talk about before sending a newsletter. We try not to send more than two per month, as we don’t want to be bothersome to our cus...
I was pretty happy yesterday. I actually set some goals and stuck tot them and I got everything accomplished that I set out to do. By the time I was finished it was about 10pm. That left just enough time for me to unwind a bit and visit with my friends online before heading off to bed. I know that every day can’t be like that, but once in a while it is nice to know that it can work. The one thing that is the top of my list that I did accomplish was creating the pattern for the trio ...
I am going to try to make this post brief, as I have a lot of things I want to accomplish today. I got a bit of a later start because I slept a little later than usual this morning. I was up for a bit last night and I suppose I caught up in the morning. But that’s OK. Apparently I needed the little bit of extra sleep. I wouldn’t want to be crabby. ;) I pretty much finished up my plaque set yesterday. I had intended to finish up by dinner and spend the evening doing some of m...
