Back at it again. Break was wonderful, and I am already making plans for the next one in March. I have to say, getting back to school was nice. Right away I made another scraper for detail work on the instrument. Oh and I'm going to try to post some pictures of the fiddle either here or on facebook or both....My birthday is coming up on Saturday as some of you have already posted me Happy Birthday messages. Thank you...I am missing a great time this month at the Western Hills festival in Oklahoma. You guys better not have too much fun without me!
On Friday I finished putting a second coat of shellac on the f-hole knife handle. It is beautiful, might I add. This week was both really great and really frustrating, but I am learning lots of course.
I just called a lady about playing for an hour apiece on Friday and Saturday this week. It is a no-pay gig, but that's okay. I still can do my share of charity.
