Okay, so I’ve been good about the projects challenge, just bad about the posting.  27 days in, 1 project left to do… maybe I’ll wait until Friday night for some last minute, down to the wire drama!

Here’s a quick look at much of what has been going on in, and outside of the shop. Quite the mix of big and small. I wish I was able to do more “want to” than “have to” but I’m also VERY happy to have cleared a lot of those projects off the pre-winter dance card.

I’m happy to say the shop is closer to where I want it… and I’m enjoying my time out there, the challenge is becoming a habit (and rather than a forced obligation like I feared it might.) Work will continue onto Christmas gifts and the like, and we just might have a “very homemade Christmas” after all! Just don’t count on those projects to get posted either – at least not before Santa is home and relaxing in the hot-tub after his whirlwind world tour!

quit the diversified collection scott

congrats on your diligent work
and timeline

leaning the ladder up against the building
and arranging the drop cloth
is a very subtle and expressive statement

sure to draw a crowd

well done

Well done BUD. Fun to see your string of projects. All good but the last brown pen is neat.

Thanks!
DaN, that pen is one spiffed up paper mate, in walnut clothing. I’m hoping the lack of a cap will help it stay in, or on the desk and not wander off in someones pocket!

Seeing all the projects lined up like this Scott, I see a 12 days of christmas parody coming…

Excellent work.

Well done! Can’t wait to see the rest. What’s the stick thingy with the donut?

yeah, I’ll get to the project postings, sooner or later. That’d be a drop spindle Doe. used to spin your own yarn. I’m waiting for the status report from my niece to hear how it works.

You are busy son …. good for you.

It looks like you don’t have to worry about the devil that’s for sure!

What is the purpose of those tall wheeled cabinets? They look interesting!
