Becalmed in the Horse Latitudes
I have had to heave to and lay up for awhile. We are into the 2011 holiday season and the workshop and work on the Dauntless roboboat project are lost in the midst (mist?) (fog?) of other projects.
I created a little wood working project called a cookie stamp set and that item has exploded as Christmas gifts. I am currently building four more sets and that might not be the end.
I have discovered there is a much larger demand (read that as market) for well crafted and unusual home products than scale steam engines and large model boats. I have people wanting to buy these cookie things! Not that I have changed my enthusiasm for either of these personal hobby indulgences, but I see what work can help pay the hobby bills.
