« Part 7: Stephen - The Little Sledding Boy Part 8 of Victorian Skater Pond Scene series Part 9: Phillipe »

After a long day of cleaning the house and doing some baking for the holidays, Carilynn made a nice, comforting supper for her family. She had a steaming pot of chili on the stove and caramel baked apples with raisins and walnuts baking in the oven But where was Stephen? He was supposed to be home before dark.

Carilynn left her warm kitchen and headed for the skating pond where she was sure to find Stephen playing with his friends on his beautiful red sled. He will probably be too tired to pull the sled home and she will eventually have to pull him along the frozen city streets. But Carilynn was a patient mother, and enjoyed seeing her son have so much fun! These days of watching him grow will be gone too soon.

Hi Sheila.

You’ll have an entire town by the time you’re done.

You planning on adding to the collection on an annual basis? Might be a good idea.

Hi, Big Tiny:
I am slow in writing back today. I have been in lots of directions :)
I do have an entire scene of 25 pieces with this set. The first set is already at a magazine called “Christmas365” and is set for publication in the next month or so. I am making another set here and presenting it one piece at a time, as I make it because it is quite fun to do it that way. I plan on making a nice pattern booklet with both the cutting and painting the pieces, as well as making a small footbridge that I will be showing soon.

It will be quite a fun set and I am glad you like it.

Hi Sheila.

You’re going to convince me to dust off my scroll saw yet. ;)

I originally bought it for use in marquetry, but some of your stuff has got me interested in expanding it’s repertoire.

Maybe after I get the sawdust chronicles build done…
