Long weekend so far. Sue Mey's new e-Magazine is out. Link below.

Sorry that I have not posted anything this weekend. As some of you know I work as a service tech for Xerox. I have been with the company over 35 years. It's been a great career but like any job it has it's challenges. We work a lot of overtime. This weekend has been especially brutal. I have over 20 hours of overtime since Friday night and I still have tonight to go. At one point this weekend I worked 24 hours on one hour of sleep. Funny, that use to be a lot easier when I was 30.

As you can imagine this puts a snag in my fun with the blog. It also means no email gets replied to. It also kills the creative energy to design a pattern.

I'm not really complaining because I have a lot of friends who need jobs so I'm lucky to have one. Actually I probably am complaining but I'm an old guy and that's what we do. 

The machines we work on generally do most of their running at night. The companies that own them spend thousands of dollars a month on service contracts. They depend on us to keep them running 24/7. Downtime is measured in thousands of dollars an hour.

While I was working last night I did a video walk around of the machine I was servicing. No reason for the video other than I was waiting for it to boot up. I receive a lot of email asking what I do for a living so I thought I would share the video. It's only a minute so it won't put you to sleep.

I had a few minutes before I try to go to bed so I designed a pattern that reflects what I hope to feel one of these days.

Check out Sue's new eMagazine and special offers.

This is my fourth e-Magazine and I would like to thank all who have been supporting this venture. The main theme for this issue is ‘Nature’ and ‘Garden’. There are also a few projects for Father’s Day, which is celebrated on June 21 in many countries. In addition, the Patriotic butterfly should come in handy for those in the US, either for Memorial Day – May 25, Flag Day – June 14, or Independence Day – July 4. I like to include a religious pattern, and hope that you enjoy making the simple ‘Heart with cross’ project. Anyone not sure how to tackle a particular project, can refer to the Basic Scroll Saw Procedures article included. There are 16 different projects – all new patterns, not available on my website.
