Default Road Trip!

Just got back from two weeks worth.

Spent a weekend in Georgia & S Carolina visiting with the second oldest son & his family.

Then spent three days with Judy Gale Roberts and came away with this awesome wolf. I know no other words to describe Judy, her classes and staff but "Awesome!!". She is a marvelous teacher and artist & Marion and Stacey are great. I'm back to seer them in October to do the Buffalo Bill Project.


Then off to Garland, TX, where I dropped of the Ballerina bear for my 5-year old great-grand daughter, who is starting ballet classes - And - the fireman bear for the 3-year old great-grandson who is enamored with anything "Fire Department".


While I was in Garland, I took a side road to Rockwall, TX to meet the famous Ray Seymore of SeyCo. I picked up some flex drums and gave him about 30 minutes to talk me out of buying an Excalibur. He just couldn't do it and I walked off with a brand new EX-21. Yippeee!

Watta Trip!!!

Excellent projects which I'm sure were accepted with huge smiles and tons of hugs. Good for you on the new acquisition you will not be sorry. I am envious you live close enough to another scroller you could enjoy a class from one of the masters.

Outstanding trip, and one you won't forget. Taking one of Judy's classes will really open your eyes to intarsia. The shaping of those bears shows you have learned well. Excellent job on all 3 of your projects, my favorite is the fireman bear. The wood choices make that one stand out the most. Congratulations on your new toy too. The better your equipment the better your projects turn out.

It sounds like a road trip with pleasant interludes. Great job on the wolf and the bears. Lucky grandkids and happy grandparents.

I'm REALLY jealous! Not only did you get to spend time with Judy Gale in those beautiful Tennessee mountains and learn from the master, but you met Ray! Both are on my bucket list. You are one lucky dog. Beautiful work on all three projects. I know your grandkids loved the bears.

I already have dibs on the wolf pattern as soon as it is released to the rest of us.
I did the lion cub in the int II class last year. Judy's gallery is humbling isn't it.
And yes the whole crew are absolutely wonderful, did you also go to Jeffries?

Didn't make it to Jefferies, yet. Hopefully, while I'm there inOctober. I understand they have wood that others usually don't. Must be the "Judy" influence at work :-)

Jeffries does a lot of business thanks to Judy.
I drove down from NY in a Jeep so I took some wood back with me. Yellowheart, Holly, Lignum Vitea, some different Cedar and a few other things.

Sounds like a wonderful experience. It is just too bad that it is so far from Montreal.

Your work is awesome. Really like the wolf!
