Old projects

I have been busy working on the imaginary list that is in my head. 

We finished the Christmas Ornaments!! Yeah us!  Done in plenty of time for Christmas.  I even send a bunch with my brother and sister in law to deliver to their kids and their grands.

We finished the special order Lady Slipper and Christmas Ornaments and all were delivered this past week!

I have some other carving projects that have been almost finished for a long time.

That red fish still needs something…perhaps I will make him plaid or polka dots.

The long pointy Santa was a class I took a long time ago that my cousin Chuckie gave.  The fish is from another class, it was a practice piece.  At one time I thought that the snowman could be a Christmas Ornament…too many hours in him for that.   The bark spirit became a Santa with a really funky beard.

I have a bag that holds all my unfinished smaller carvings…I have more upstairs…in a huge lard tin and in pretty little boxes…oh well if I don’t get them all carved they can be firewood.

I got the trim around the garage doors scraped and washed and they are drying out now before I prime and paint. 

My garage has finally been restored to normal and awaits the big project of ripping down some white Styrofoam insulation that we stupidly hung on the ceiling years ago.  I will be really happy when that project is done.  I am trying to figure out how to get it all down without using a ladder.  You wouldn’t believe the contraptions I have designed in my head.

I have the 2015 Christmas Ornament designed in my head…now to draw it all out and do a few prototypes. Busy Busy!

  2. You are one busy girl. I would have to write all this stuff down on paper as leaving it in my head it would disappear. Love your carvings. Have a great weekend.

  4. Your ornaments are very unusual. Since I'm in the middle of remodeling my bathroom, I share your frustration with projects that need to be done. For some reason, I just done't have the stamina I used to, or flexibility.

  5. You are smart to have the Christmas ornaments finished. I have projects on the porch and back patio but it is too hot. Near 100 every day and the humidity is horrible. Guess everything will wait till fall.
    Hope you two have a good weekend.

  6. I love seeing your carvings and makes me so want to get back out to my scrollsaw work but in my habit of overcomitting I need to finish other things first. Sigh....

  7. Great job of reaching your goals on the carving. Even not feeling up to par, you soldiered through to "git 'er done."

  9. The carvings are really good. I can't imagine being able to carve something out of a little piece of wood. Looks like it would be fun painting the pieces.
