  • 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.

                              Great job! Another artist in the making for sure. She ...and you, should be proud.

                                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
