  • Back from Branson, Pics

    I'm back! But that means the Branson picnic is over
    But it was awesome!!!! It was my first scroll saw picnic event and I can't wait till next year. I'm lucky in that I am only a few hours away from Branson.

    Gosh, where do I start? I got to meet so many wonderful people and see some awesome scrollsaw art/projects. Not to mention there's plenty to do around Branson.

    The list of people I met is long, but to name a few from this site. Bob D. and Shannon and Dale along with Mike Moorlach (I picked up alot of blades, especially after the "after the fire sale") more on that later. I was able to attend a couple of seminars but I'd have to say my favorite was given by Jeff Zaffino. I picked up alot of tips directly from the scource not to mention I now have enough of his patterns to keep me busy for a very long time. There was also Rick Hutcheson and Dirk Boleman there along with Carol and Gail Jennings, so many designers and people that I got to meet personally it was just an incredible experience and weekend.

    Well I don't want to bore ya'll with to much chit chat, I'll load a few of these pictures for ya'll to look at and be back in a little while to tell you more, such as "the fire" story and more......

    Sorry about the quality of my pictures, I just aim and shoot.

                    Evie thats me and Bob in the very first picture, and I'm sorry I don't know who did the turkey, it was one of the entrys and I just liked it, so I took a pic. I didn't take a duck ride, but stopped to take a picture of one for you. I only have a couple of picture of me and the wife together, I'll post them later for you.

                    Unfortunatley I wont be making it to the Fox Chapel Open House, or the Wisconson picnic I can handle more, just can't afford it or the time off from work.

                      Hey Bill,

                      Are your whiskers a different color than the hair on top of your head or is it just a bad photo?

                      Thanks for sharing and I'm glad you had a great time.

                        Thanks Mike! How nice of you to notice! Yes the face hair went grey, but the mop on top is still dark! Don't ask me why And the wife won't let me cut the whiskers and I ain't gonna color it, it's all natural baby

                                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                                Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
