Counting down the days and lists of things to do…

As the next Sign Magic Workshop quickly approaches I’m keeping the MutliCam very, very busy. I’ve been busy creating some cool sample files in EnRoute. The small dimensional pieces which the students will work on are now all ready and laid out. The six name plaques are almost finished being painted. Other projects for the workshop are currently being routed as I type.
It’s hard to believe that in a little more than a week we’ll be busy learning to create similar routing files, we be priming, painting, glazing and gilding. Metal will be welded, Precision Board carved… cement will be sculpted and a whole lot more fun will be had.
I have to keep busy for there is much to do yet… a few more samples to prepare… shop to be tidied, tables set up… grass to be cut… notes to review one more time…
The countdown has begun in Yarrow.
