  • How do you stop looking for patterns?

    My god!

    I can't seem to stop printing, copying, scanning, buying, and even editing patterns. Replace an horse with a hummingbird, etc.

    So how do I stop playing with the patterns and get some scrolling done?

    I have done some scrolling, but I've been playing with the patterns allot more than actually scrolling them.

    Am I sick? Do I need a new drug? Is there a medial condition that has these symptoms?

        There is no cure.
        I have thousands of patterns, in fact I have over 1000 ornament patterns alone, and probably 10 gigabytes of scans and other patterns.
        I spend more time looking for patterns and making patterns than I do scrolling.

        I may have found a cure though. I am going on a cruise in January so no computers for a couple of weeks. That may help,,,,,but I doubt it.

              Well John I bet if I do I wont last another 28 years of marriage
              I will probably be too busy on the dance floor anyway.
              Steve you are right. I am taking a couple of cameras with me so I will get tons of inspiration

                Carl,

                Hand a camera to someone that isn't dancing and ask for photos of you and your wife dancing. Now that's a pattern in the making. Your Fred and Ginger pattern will have some stiff competition....Aye!

                  Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                  Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                  My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                  I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                  Was it a good idea.....?...

                  Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                  The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                  I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
