  • De-lurking

    Hi All, My name is Jim and I live in Connecticut. I’ve been reading this message board for a few of months now and decided it was time I de-lurked, signed-on and said hello.

    I’ve been scrolling for somewhere around ten years now, and do so simply for my own enjoyment. I’ve done mostly fretwork and some intarsia in the past and have just started to explore the world of portraits and using the computer to convert photos into patterns.

      Jim,
      Welcome!!
      Sort of the scroller that came in from the dark, right? Or was that a spy??
      Never mind! It's lots more fun belonging than just looking. Make yourself at home, and I hope you enjoy your visits.

          Will do Kelly and Sandy, in fact I just posted my first picture in the “General Scroll Saw” section. Looks like I need to work on how to format the pictures though. The ones I posted didn’t come out too good.

            Welcome Jim, glad to see you emerge from the shadows. I think you'll like it here, nice place, nice folks. What kind of saw do you have?

                  Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

                  For a scroll saw, I have one of the older 26 inch RBI Hawks. It’s behaved itself wonderfully, and has never given me a moments trouble (“knock wood” – or should that be “cut wood”).

                  Yes Kevin, I’m a CT Swamp Yankee, born and raised. I’m located up in the Northeast part of the state (a.k.a. “The Quiet Corner”) in the town of Ashford (not too far from UCONN – which is rarely “quiet”).

                    Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                    I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                    These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
