« Part 939: Slow and Steady Part 940 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 941: Moving Right Along . . . »

I had a good day yesterday. I took things slowly and the good news is that I am feeling a bit better each day. Even better is that I finished drawing up the six mask patterns for scrolling on the scroll saw and will hopefully be able to begin doing some cutting today.

Sitting at the saw is not at all a strain on my back. I sit very comfortably with a nice padded stool at a good height so I won’t be hunched over or anything like that. Still, I am going to take it slowly and when my body says “rest” I will do just that. In between I can even paint and plan the pieces for the painters.

There is certainly enough to do to keep me busy.

Keith is at a stage in his designing where he also is ready to use the saw, so we will probably alternate and take turns throughout the day. This will also slow me down a bit and help me not to do too much in a stretch.

I am going to keep this short today, as there is little more to show you than another sample shot of one of the pieces.

Hopefully I can show you some of the real things tomorrow.

Have a great day! :)

Yep. Slow is good. Progress is good. I am in tune with things and happy they are progressing as quickly as they are. No cartwheels yet, but I can do most things normally. ;) I am one happy, happy girl!

Good Morning Sheila. I’m glad each day is better and better for you. Being in tune with your body is one of the greatest assets to have.
I’m so looking forward to seeing the masks completed. The little teasers you are giving us look awesome. Nice sharp corners and curly cues – my kind of scrolling!
Enjoy the snow. Looks like we are finally seeing the fog burn off here and the sun is shining. A good brisk walk is in order before I settle to finishing a project I started months ago! The Winter Competition has got me motivated to finish it.

Thanks Roger and Anna! I had a good day today and feel nearly back to my “old” self! :D Funny what a difference a day makes, isn’t it?

I hope you show some pictures of your project, Anna. I would love to see what you are doing for it! :)

Have a great night, Sheila
