  • 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!

                  Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                  Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                  Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                  Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                  I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                  Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
