  • Granddaughter's First Intarsia

    Because I'm not allowed to post any pictures of my absolutely drop dead gorgeous granddaughter (her father is very protective of her), this is the only way I can show you what a great job she did on her very first intarsia project. She's quite proud of it. She did the cutting and shaping with very little help from me. We will not discuss how much advice she got from her father, but know that she has made a fine art of eye rolling!

    Looks like she had an excellent teacher guiding her. That really turned out nice for bring the 1st. She could have her calling in life.

          Terrific job, Jan. Tell your granddaughter that most adults would be proud to produce a piece like that.

          And about your discreet removal of identifying characteristics, given some of the shady types who lurk around this forum, you can't be too careful.

            Hey Jan - tell Alex from me that she did a really great job and she should be really proud with the result.

            I think also that your contribution must put you up there high in the 'greatest granny' lists.

            Hope Alex gets to continue scrolling in the future. It sure is good to see youngsters doing something creative.

            Well done to you both

              Looks like she enjoyed herself. It is very obvious that she has talent. What a nice memory making occasion and she even has a keepsake to remind her of this time spent together.

                    Jan, I'm sure you are very proud of Alex...as you should be. She did a wonderful job on that piece. Hope she stays with it for years to come. I'll bet her Father has more than one shotgun laying around the house just waiting for the young man that thinks he wants to hang around....

                      I passed on the good things all of you said about Alex's work. As for her father, we think he may allow her to start dating sometime after her 30th birthday.

                          Thanks, Bruce. She looked over your pelican pattern and the pieces I've already cut for that project and decided she'd stick with the simple stuff for a while. I guess I'll have to show her your teddy bear pattern.

                                Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                                Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                                I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                                For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                                The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                                Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
