bison scrim done

I finished the bison scrim last night. I don't yet have a title for it. It will be framed like some of my other ones, but that'll probably wait a while.

In other news, well let's see, it's a month til Christmas. Ack! Three projects need to be done asap, so it's time to duct tape my butt to the chair and crack that whip.

I'm sick, I've got that stupid cold that seems to be making the rounds. If I don't feel fantastic on Thursday I'm going to be most cranky. I have missed far too many Thanksgiving dinners because of colds!

The horses are well. Still trying to find a few spare days to head up north for some Bears and Boulders but between the weather and busy schedules, it's proving somewhat challenging. I hope it works out!

I have had very little time to work on practicing engraving metal, but I intend to get a little more focused on that. I ordered some practice plates, and I just need to work on lines and circles and curves and really get a feel for how to handle the tools.

Okay, back to work!

Practice plates? Metal practice plates? Like the one in your head?
