  • JGR Cranes Done!!!!!!

    After many delays, none of them my fault, the JGR sandhill cranes are done and ready to hang. Woods are aspen, oak, WRC, aromatic cedar, and madrone.

      Ah come on Amica! you don't expect us to believe that do you?

      Well. the wait was definitely worth it. Absolutely, beautiful work

      Now forget out those piddlin' birdhouses- A large chimney stack with a load of sticks and twigs on top would make a great nest for these two to fly home to!

      Congratulations!

            Thanks for all the nice comments. The cranes have now found their home over the sofa rather than in a chimney as Jim suggested.

              Very well done, yes the wait was worth the reward.

                    Super Wow! Your cranes came out nicely Jan. I don't know where you find the patience to fit all those pieces together. Superb work. What's next?

                      Thanks again for the nice comments. Next are some easy Christmas intarsia pieces and more of the Diana Thompson miniature birdhouses for a gift shop nearby. They originally asked for 30 birdhouses, changed the order to 50 and again to 70. The first 30 went out the door fairly quickly, I guess.

                      @ Rick: No patience involved. I'm stuck at home taking care of a 94 year old aunt and a husband recovering from a hand injury (table saw got him) I hide in the shop and play with my saw.

                          Hi Jan,

                          What a great job on th Sandhill Cranes. One of my favorite birds. Every late fall, they winter here in TN. We get to see (and hear) them every day. What a great sight.

                              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...
