A sign I did for a Lady who did some sowing for me and didn’t charge me~~~So, I made her a sign.

I really love the colors…..but, I think that the name is at a slight angle and that will bug me until the cows come home…..

Thoughts/questions/suggestions~~~all welcomed!

Might be a little off, but it almost looks like the bottom of the board or the edge makes it look that way.

Either way, nice looking sign. View from the end looks pretty straight.

Thanks~~ I was going to do something else with it and I messed it up~~so, this is the ‘2.0’ of it~

Here is a picture of what it looked like before…. I was trying to keep it simple but it just never works~

This is ALL the same piece of wood and the border on the finished one was made like that because I had to
‘erase’ the birds. So, that is why the border is the way it is~

These look nice and I think that the style will appeal to a lot of people.

Jon it looks great. Quit worrying about the small stuff that just adds character to the project.

I cannot ‘just let it be’... I end up scrapping 5x what I end up posting…. Even if it is something only
I would ever see, it has to at least be defect free~~no paint bleeding ect
