  • B.S. (Before Scrolling)

    I was searching through my photo collection this morning trying to find a subject for a new pattern and came across this. It's a photo taken at a craft fair sponsored by my old employer. This is what I did before becoming addicted to scrolling. Haven't picked up a knife since!!!! Not a good photo but you can get an idea.

    Carving's loss is scrolling's gain .

    You're so creative and talented, Neal. Those carvings are magnificent!

            Those are terrific Neal. I just have to make sure neither of my daughters see them or I'll have to learn how to carve, hehehehe.

                Aw, come on Kevin...all you have to do to carve one of those horses is cut away all the wood that isn't part of the horse!!!

                        Very nice! I use to carve and even used to get the 'Mallet' and belonged to the National Carver's Museum out in Colorado. They went bust quite a while back I guess. I went to scrolling when lost 35% of my feeling and strength in my left hand due to an Ulna Nerve problem. Funny, I don't miss carving now a days.

                          Really nice Neal,

                          Now I see the resemblance in the color choice you were talking about (blue & white)

                          I imagine they are traditional colors?

                          Thanks for showing those, I hope you kept some for yourself. They are truly fine figurines.

                          Regards,
                          Marcel

                            I don't have any of them anymore Marcel. My ex-wife kept the Wood Duck (best carving I ever did) and I gave the horses to the Granddaughters. I appreciate all the nice comments from everyone...Thanks!!!
