Default First project from Big Yellow

And the wood pecker fretwork that Mr. Fox started and Big Yellow finished. Any way, both are Steve Good's patterns and when I cut the scroll man out, I could not get over how much easier it was to get around some of those tight turns. I'm not sure yet what I will put behind the wood pecker, but it is thicker than I would have liked so I'm thinking of making it into a stained glass thing. I saw a video about doing it with resin and a few drops of paint. This way you can put more than one color on it. I will no doubt end up putting a black background on it. Enjoy Fay P.S. Sorry these are not the best pictures....

I agree. Will look for the charger for my camera. I took these pictures with my cell phone and I'm at the age where I can't hold still very well as far as cameras. When these projects are done ill snap better picture and hopefully with my camera not a cell phone... Have a great day Fay

If you shake the camera the same as the phone it may not help. Try brighter lighting to make shutter speed faster, or lean camera/phone on something to steady.

I found the charger for my camera. My camera has a non shake setting on it so I will make sure that is set right. After I get these projects done, I will take more pictures and see how well they turn out. My camera is now charging and I'm sure it will take a couple of hours or so as the battery is pretty much dead. I hope I won't have to get another battery. Well going to hit the sack kind of early tonight as my tooth is hurting big time. Hope I sleep better tonight than I did last night. Have a great night... Fay

That's a Steve Good pattern, Rolf. I was tempted to make one, in a girl version, but then got distracted. I think it could be customized, with miniature projects, to make it really cute.

Does "cute" sound too girly? Oh dear!

Carole is right,, the scroll man is a Steve Good pattern and so is the woodpecker. The wood pecker is an oval shaped pattern, but I had this chunky piece of a plaque so I put the wood pecker on it. Will post the competed project in the bowls, boxes and other 3D section and it will be a better picture as I was able to get my camera working fine. Have a great day Fay
