Almost a million views and a bit of an explanation


So it’s been a very interesting Year.  As I’m sure you’ve noticed that blog posts have been down here and when I have posted, many times it’s been other’s work not mine.  About this time last year I was told I was being transferred to a position based in Tacoma.  And for those of you who know about Seattle traffic, you’ll know that this was a big problem.  

It was in many ways a promotion but the negatives out weighed the benefits so I had to launch into full blown job search mode which was a significant challenge since I’d been in my previous job for 15 years.  But good news, if you fast forward to today, I’m now at the end of my forth week in my new job and having fun again.  My day is longer but I’m hoping to negotiate some additional woodworking personal time 😉 .

Preview of Things to Come

In June I’ll be leaving the fam at home and going on a luxurious 2 week woodworking vacation and immersing myself in carving.   I’ll be putting my Ernest Sarjeant carving gouges to work.

This adventure also promises some good blog post.  I’ll also be posting about a bowl I’m attempting to carve.  In the mean time, here’s a quick shot of the bowl and a view of my commute to my new job.

Oh and BTW!

My blog is about to hit a million views, so hopefully my upcoming post will put it over the top.  Weeeeee!  A million view.  I never thought I’d ever hit that.  

Thanks for reading!! 🙂

  1. A toast to the beginning of June and 1,000,000 posts and beyond.
    You do good work, Ms Guthrie.

  2. Marilyn,

    Congrats on the new position. I hope you enjoy it.

    As for the distraction of life, I fully understand. We, and your shop, will be here whenever you’re ready.

  3. You go girl! I just changed jobs in part so that I could be a little more than a once or twice a month woodworker. Headed to Bad Axe in July for their sawlapalooza!

  4. Thankyou for blogging! “she works wood” is pretty darned important to the blogosphere.

  5. I want to be the millionth. Is there a prize? I hope there’s a prize.

    Glad to see things are moving in the right direction. Best of luck Marilyn.
