"This is our happy place" Scroll Saw Pattern

We are going to the closing on our new house today. We are moving back to where we grew up. Our families are still there and it will be nice to be closer to them. We will be a mile from my brother and a few miles from Patty's family. If all goes well our movers will be here Monday and we will be on our way to our new home. That inspired today's very simple pattern.

I finished tearing down my shop today. That was a challenge. I disassembled all the scroll saws and prepared them for the move. I took all the other tools off their stands and removed the blades. Most time was cleaning all the tools. I did not want to take dust into the new house so I thoroughly cleaned everything. It is amazing how many places dust can hide.

I eliminated most of the stuff that did not absolutely need to be moved. I tore down a few old DIY jigs that I have not used in years. I got rid of all the old paint and chemicals. I figured moving chemicals was just an accident waiting to happen. 

The next five days will be very busy so you may not hear from me for a while. I will get my computers set back up on the first day. Then I will get enough tools assembled to make projects and I should be back online. Fingers crossed. In fourteen years I think I have only missed three days in a row once. The blog has become such a part of my life that it feels strange thinking I might be offline for a while. I guess I'll live.

Thanks for all the support. I'll keep you posted.
