Talking A Special Ornament (and 1st.picture attempt)

Well I promised I'd try and post pictures of some of my work when I figured out how so I thought I'd start with something special to my wife and I. We just had our first grandchild in Sept. and Steve Good over at Scroll Saw Workshop designed the this nice pattern for me. The cutting is nothing special but the subject sure is. Thanks for looking and I apologize in advance if I don't upload this correctly.
Merry Christmas,
Ralph

The cutting and finishing is wonderful. This is a truly unique and special present that will be treasured and hung on the tree year after year. I have ornaments on mine that belonged to my grandparents and taking them from their boxes each year brings back very special memories (not least of sharing beds!!!). Yours will go on forever, too.

Well done!

Very nice. Exactly the kind of ornament that will kept until it crumbles away into dust. Well cut and a great design.
