    Hello Everyone,

    First I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

    Second I would like to share an idea some of you might already have thought of.

    I made up some of those Mini Pocket Cars in the Holiday 2011 SSWC magazine and I got to thinking I would like to have something for little girls too.

    A little doll buggy I could put in my pocket.

    I made a pattern and cut some out of scraps of cherry. I am posting a couple of pictures and pattern for anyone interested.

                Thanks for the pattern Al. I'm always looking for things for little girls as there are more girls than boys in the family and girly things for the scroll saw are not too common.

                  Sorry it has taken me so long to get back.

                  Thanks to all for the nice comments.

                  One thing I might add is how I attached the baby in the buggy. I made my

                  buggies out of 3/4" stock. When you buy the wooden people they are 5/8"

                  diameter, to large to drill a hole for in 3/4" stock.

                  First I made a jig to drill a 1/4" hole in the baby from the bottom.

                  Second I cut the babies body off at the shoulders.

                  Third I glue a 1/4" dowel into the baby.

                  Fourth I drill a 1/4" hole in buggy.

                  Last (VERRY IMPORTANT) make sure that baby is securely

                  glued into the buggy.

                    My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

                    Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...

                    My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....
