I'm checking my list and I'm checking it twice - because 2010 is almost over and I want to be prepared for the new year.
This year I wanted to make some bottle stoppers. I did. Check.
Although it hadn't been on my "to do" list, I also tried my hand at carving with a power tool (thank you Jordan for that carving class). I feel that the experience was a success. Check.
I also wanted to pass the lathe over to Rick so he could have some fun turning some things - I did (sneaky, really- he made all the Christmas presents this year). Check.
And now, it is time to prepare for 2011. What will be on the list for this coming year? I have discovered that I enjoy trying new things more than repeating the skill over and over (thus a few boxes, a few pens, a few fairy doors, a few bottle stoppers.) Perhaps this year I should return to some of these projects and try making some more. Or perhaps I should try ....... hmmm don't know yet. But I still have lots of time to think about it.
What do you have planned for 2011 and how did you do on your 2010 list?
(as always, feedback on the eMag is appreciated!)
