  • Teddy Bears

    My lung doctor finally said I could get back into my shop if I was very careful with the dust. I made the doctor bear for him. On the back I wrote "Thanks for saving my life" as I do believe he did. The other doctor wasn't doing much. This doc. got the oxygen and other things I really needed. Also the biopsies I needed. The nurse bear is for my home visiting nurse that has helped me so much.
    Any comments are welcome.

              Those are just darling - and a super job in creating them! I have a lot of admiration for people who appreciate and thank others who are "just doing their job" - you're special for doing this for them.

              I sent up a prayer for your continued well-being.

                Great Job Fran - those are cute. I have all of Judy's patterns and I'm making them as demanded by the better half deciding which teddy goes to which grand-kid. Haven't gotten to the medical bears, yet - but you are giving me the incentive.

                        Those are both great, Fran, and I'm sure the doctor and nurse will be delighted with them. It's gestures like yours that make this world a better place. I'm glad to hear you're able to be back in your shop again, and yes, you be careful with that dust!

                          Those are adorable! I'm glad you've gotten the ok to get back to making sawdust - just be sure not to breathe any in. I'm sure your dr. and nurse will really appreciate them.

                            Those are beautiful. I am sure the doctor and the nurse will treasure them forever. What a nice way to say thank you for all that they have done. I am so glad you are doing much better!

                                I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                                John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
