« Part 1083: More on the Metallic Lustre Water-based Wax Part 1084 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1085: Building a Foundation »

Today’s post will be a bit short. Yesterday I spent most of the day away, as I needed to attend a funeral and by the time I returned home, I was rather tired. It was very warm out here in Nova Scotia – summer has definitely arrived. The afternoons have been hot and sunny and the best part of the day was the actual drive to and from Digby.

I returned home late in the afternoon and after changing and trying to cool off myself and the cats, I finished writing my article on the Metallic Lustres. I was happy to see the nice responses that I received in showing it yesterday. I do think this product has a good place in both the woodworking and painting fields.

I called it an early night and wound up sleeping a little later than usual. The warm and restless nights were taking their toll, I expect.

I have one more hurdle before I can move on to new things and I will accomplish that today. I need to make a version of the 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments pattern that shows the Artist’s Club surface that they will be selling. This will only involve swapping out the photographs with those that show my own pieces.

I am already thinking in the direction of what to do next. I want to design some new projects for my own site, as Keith has several new designs again and it has been a little while since I have done that. There are many possibilities. And with the summer going by so quickly, I know before long that autumn and the holidays will be here.

So I will keep things short today. I’ll leave you with today’s “Queenism” from the “Queen of your own life” Facebook page:

”She decided that today she was in charge of how she would react to people, places and things. After all, it didn’t matter whether others liked her or not as long as she loved herself.” – Queenisms™

And a cat picture . . .

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Most of your, and other, cat pictures I copy and E-Mail to my wife’s office. Just a way to lift her day. Have a great day.

Good morning Sheila. I will definitely keep you up to date with what I’m doing with the Metallic Lustre. I’m working on a wedding present at the minute and I’ll be at the cutting stage this afternoon.
I’m happy to hear you are getting some summer weather. Hope it hangs in there during August!
We can’t complain about our weather!
Enjoy

Hi Sheila,
I think a better way that you can make is the crib for the cats that goes along with the lampshade post that Keith can make on the lathe… That is the one that comes into my mind.
Have a nice day!
