My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #97: A Very Exhilarating Day

09-08-2010 01:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I really don’t like drama. I guess I have had enough of it in my life to last my entire lifetime. There are people who thrive on it I know, but I don’t think I am one of them. I get really nervous and queasy when there is confrontation. I guess that is why I like writing so much. I can express myself without worrying about being bullied or cut off.

A few day ago I posted the child rocking chair I have been building for 30 years, and got alot of good coments, one said ( good luck selling that on a site for woodworkers ) You might forget the their is a link to put the post on your FACEBOOK.

They tell me that the best place to start is the beginning… so that is where I will start…I have been going to Timber and Working with Wood shows for many years but only in the last 12 months have I been fortunate enough to be part of the exhibitors side of these Shows… I got to go to Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and now Canberra… There is a lot of organising to do to get to one of these shows… it is not just getting up early and catching a plane…doing ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #95: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars

09-06-2010 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Finally. A Monday that people like. With the Labor Day holiday both here and in the United States, most everyone in these countries have the day off. However, with the Labor Day holiday comes the realization that summer is coming to a close and winter is not far off. I am certain that there will be plenty of grumblings about that on my facebook page. They already have started. I am ready for fall and winter. The past week was enough summer for me. I guess I found something that I di...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #94: After the Storm - Good Things on the Horizon

09-05-2010 02:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

We didn’t do too badly with the storm and all. Although there was a bit of rain and some wind, there was nothing frightening or horrible about it. It has been dry here this summer too, so the rain is probably welcome by most. A little after noon, we figured out that we needed milk and ventured out to the store because nothing is open in our area on Sunday and there is a holiday for Labor Day on Monday so things would be closed also. It wasn’t even raining when we went out, alth...
