Default didn't know straight lines were so hard to do!

Well, I have cruising the web site for a year now and think it is time to talk. I had taken an engraving course last year and bought the equipment but due to other business commitments haven't really had time to practice. Well this weekend I practiced! Glad to know I still retained some of the knowledge but that old brain of mine couldn't always convince my hands what to do. I will keep practicing. I have been carving leather for many years and several years ago started with scrimshaw. My husband is a knife maker and that is the link to the engraving. I really enjoy all of the information gladly shared on this site, one day I will try to post a picture but for now I am content to surf in the background. Of course, posting a pictue will be a tutorial in itself, so much to learn!

Hi Mrs Carter,

Welcome here.
I know what you mean, sometimes its really hard to find the time to practise as much as you would want.
Keep at it and you wil find that posting pictures is easy as riding a bike (after the first time).

Daniel
