Steve and I are working on a train for our grandson, he will be one in July. It will be 4 cars an engine and caboose. I'll post a pic when I get a chance. What project do you have hiding in the hut?

It is a toy train and the pattern is quite simple. I'll try to get a photo tomorrow - Steve has it all cut out, but I have a lot of sanding to do. He is making it of cedar so the wood is lovely. I think we will just finish it w/o painting.

well, I'm used to working with oil paints...and my brushes just dont want to cooperate with the acrylic. they try to pile colors and I wind up with a muddy reddish brown much instead! Rolling on the floor laughing I have all the acrylics, and books and dvd how-to's and lots n lots of bald spots where I tear my hair out trying and then just give up Rolling my eyes.

I like all the paint mediums although I find oils (which I apply too thick too soon) give a great effect that is all I find them good for as in that mink stole in the gallery. Piling only works with oils and it is fab, but not with acrylics. Acrylics I kinda wash sometimes to show the grain of the wood, I don't like the hard fast true colors on a lot of wood, it might as well be a cartoon painted in a book, just not real. Have you ever painted rocks? Been there done that, not for me although I have more than plenty.
BTW have you entered the Travel Junction contest - haven't seen any entries? Or did I miss something again?

Candee here's the sweater I designed that you wanted to see. It still needs buttons but that's the girls mom's job. Both sweaters are the same except the second one doesn't have the hearts on the sleeves like this one does. For those who are interested this is knitted which is why I didn't post in the crochet forum.

http://cubits.org/handmade/forums/view/allthingsknitting/ - Here is the knitting thread! Post away my friend! I will pick up the knitting needles again one of these fine days and will be asking you about the heart pattern. I have tried but just haven't had the time to master the art of knitting anything near what you create! Beautiful!
