We finally got our site updated yesterday. I say that with just a touch of exasperation because it seems like getting to this point took much, much longer than it should. It hasn’t been because I wasn’t working – as a matter of fact, I don’t think I have had a minute to ‘goof off’ in over a week! I think it was more that there has just been a lot of things going on and there have been many tasks that take time and needed my attention. It’s all p...
Creating Your Own Patterns and Designs – Class Description In this video lesson series I will show you how to use the Pattern Wizard software to create and print your own patterns and designs on your computer. This program is very useful for creating scroll saw and stained glass patterns, relief carving designs, puzzle patterns, and other craft designs. While we will focus on patterns for chip carving in this series, the same techniques I will teach you can be used to create patterns...
As the deep freeze continues to grip both Canada and much of the USA, we here in Nova Scotia have been very fortunate in that instead of bitter cold and snow, we are having rain. In looking at our weather service, it appears that although we are slightly below freezing today and may receive a small amount of snow, our temperatures will be nothing like the biting cold that much of North America has experience. In fact, yesterday was almost ‘balmy’ as it rained for most of the day...
It’s the month of December already and that only means one thing – Elf Mode. While it appears I am in Elf Mode every day, during the holidays it goes to a new level. Not only do I enjoy making most of the gifts that I give, but I also like to participate in many exchanges that are held from several of the forums that I frequent. Yes – I LOVE to receive small pieces of others’ work! Recently, in my never ending quest to be organized I purchased a nice brush box ...
I am just going to post a quick update today, as I still have quite a bit that I want to accomplish. I am working on writing the pattern packets for the new projects that we are in the process of adding to our site. I finished two of the three packets yesterday and I want to have the third one posted by the end of the day. Keith has also been working on some new projects that will be included in the update. Below is a picture of an ornament from his new set that he designed. He calls t...
Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.
As I am writing this morning, the sky is a very light blue and it is filled with puffy clouds. The bottoms of the clouds are an incredible peachy/orange hue that blends into the peachy/grey tops. If I painted a picture like this, some would think it looked ‘fake’, as the colors are so unusual. But it is there and it is a beautiful sight to wake up to. I can feel already that it will be a good day. I made pretty good progress yesterday on my project. The second version of th...
