Thursday I unloaded scaffolding from my truck then it wouldn't go back in gear! Had it towed to a mechanic and it turns out I need a new transmission :( This is a very costly repair, and to find a good part for a good price, I had to order one from TX.
However, I managed to get a stone delivery and get back to work on the StoneGarden guesthouse patio today. I'm following a unique design where I am mixing 4 or 5 types of flagstone to achieve a textured, mosaic appearance.
Other good news is, I received a package Monday containing new chisels! Its already made a huge difference in my letter carving. I made this for a friend s birthday.
Tomorrow I meet with the staff at High Country Home magazine to discuss an article they are planning on outdoor living. I'm hoping they will decide to feature either my business or some of my work. Wish me luck!
