  • A few recent bits and pieces

    Just got round to actually finishing a few things, as opposed to just cutting them ..

    I forgot to photograph the bear and the moose leaves before I mailed them to mum and sister but here's the others ...

    Lovely projects, Ian, and a great sense of humor!

      Thank, Gill. The hand one was actually made for Sue to put on her desk at work but she hasn't plucked up the courage to do it .. she's not sure how her boss would take it ..lol

      For some reason the "talk to the hand" expression has always amused me - it's one of the more imaginatve bits of rudeness I came across when I was teaching. I remember the first time I ever heard it. I had a somewhat uncooperative pupil say it to me. I just burst out laughing - which at least defused a bad tempered situation ...

        Those are great Ian.

        I'm sorry we missed the bear and moose. We have them all over the living room (not live ones of course) .

        I would put the Talk to the Hand on my desk in a heart beat. Wouldn't really care what anyone else thought. Actually, I think mine should say GO AWAY!

        I have a friend at work that loves to stir up stuff, just because. I think she likes the drama. I'm trying to figure out how to design a sign that says "Don't Poke the Bear". I may just make it look like an old sign and paint that on there and maybe a picture of a bear too. I tell her that all the time when she's gone over and above on the subject.

          A fretwork sign would look cool ...

                Great stuff Ian. I especially like the little gargoyle!

                  The words here this afternoon have mostly been swearwords ... trying to figure out why my planer has decided to destroy wood rather than flattening it .. grr!

                  The Whatever sign is from a back copy of SSWC I got recentlly .. can't remeber whose design it was.. the talk to the hand is mine - hence the not very good hand ..lol The bear I just played in Photoshop for 5 mins - trying to inspire Kelly to do more fretwork ....

                    Thanks, Chris. I like that gargoyle too - it's in one of the Patrick Spielman books. It's only small in the book and part of a house number sign - I enlarged it to about 9 inches high.

                    Sue doesn't like it ..lol When I asked where i should hang it she suggested behind the door ....

                      Nice cutting on everything, Ian!

                      The gargoyle's incredible, and yet it would creep me out a bit to have it hanging in my house. Love the design.

                      I'd like to have a "Don't feed the bear" sign to go with an expression I use when someone is annoying me (the second part is "He'll go away"). It's a tad antisocial, though.

                        I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as it’s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

                        Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!

                        Linda,
                        Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...
