My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1510: Making Some Bad Days Better

03-05-2015 01:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

This week has not been one of my favorite weeks of all time. Like everyone else, once in a while we have some crummy days.  Mine had decided to come all at the same time it seems. I was having some 'technical difficulties' on Tuesday, and while I intended to spend the day drawing my new designs, I wound up spending the majority of the day 'fixing things' and putting out fires. (not literally).  I did have a nice evening though when I threw in the towel and spent the ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #66: American Girl Furniture patterns

03-03-2015 02:18 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

Hello woodworkers I have a question. I have turned a lot of my attention to creating furniture for 18 inch dolls, like American Girl. I have the book by Dennis Simmons, “Making Furniture and Dollhouses … ” and it seems to be the only printed resource for patterns. I have every copy of ScrollSaw Woodworking mag that contains a pattern for this. I have searched the internet and “YES” I have seen all of the suggestions about using ratios to change patterns to fit...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1509: Product Review - Makita BO3710 Finishing Sander

03-03-2015 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It's sunny outside and looks to be a beautiful day. I can see the tops of the trees along the riverbank swaying in the breeze though, so I am certain that although it looks warm outside, it is a bit deceiving. As we work our way into March, I am thinking that it is more 'lion-like' than 'lamb-like' and that we will just have to have a bit more patience for milder weather. In all honesty, this winter has gone by very quickly. Perhaps the reason that I am not so annoyed with...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1508: A Perfect World - Final Touches

03-02-2015 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is snowing out. I woke up to another 2 inches of fresh snow over the 3 feet we already have on the ground. We went for a walk last night and it was cold out, but there was no wind and it was truly beautiful. The roads were clear and you could even walk on the salty pavement in most parts. Both Keith and I marveled at how much snow we have had already this year. It has certainly been more than we have had in a long time. We took a drive to Yarmouth on Saturday. It was clear and sunny a...

Menards versus Irwin Clamps

03-02-2015 01:30 AM by Huckleberry | 1 comment »

Not sure what has happened, but when I was at Menards today I went through the clearance section as is my routine. To my surprise I found a stash of Irwin Quick Clamps not the little flimsy ones either. We’re talking the XP kind. So I bought up what they had there and went to another 20 minutes down the road only to find one there. Not sure if this is the deal Lowe’s went through with Bessey or not but I picked me up about a dozen of them…because you can never have enough.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1507: Spring Triple Scoop Project Completed

02-27-2015 01:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is NOT snowing today. The sun is shining and I can actually see hints of blue sky peeking from behind the clouds. (And yes – I am happy about it!) Those of you who read often know that I love winter. I love just about any season that comes to Clare, Nova Scotia. I long ago stopped being crabby about the weather because there is truly nothing that I could do about it. I figure it is a poor use of my time complaining about something that I have so little control over (aside f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1506: I'll Have a Scoop of Spring - (Make Mine a Triple!)

02-26-2015 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

You all know that I never mind winter. In fact – I actually LIKE it most times and try to enjoy every season and day that comes my way. But when yesterday's beautiful, white and fluffy snow turned into an icy rain, and I looked at my pretty red car encased up to the dash in a block of frozen snow, I couldn't help but think ahead to warmer days. It happens to the best of us. One of the many advantages of being active on social media – especially when you are a member o...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1505: A Perfect World - Panel 17

02-25-2015 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It is snowing outside this morning. Rather hard, actually. I ventured out to bring the garbage to the end of the road, as we have had to have the bags sitting on our little deck these past two weeks. This isn't because we are lazy. There is simply no other place to put it. When our driveway was cleared last week from the big storm, the tractor dumped about 8 feet of snow onto our trash bin across the road. We probably won't see it for several weeks.As walked the trash out to the ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1504: More New Patterns!

02-24-2015 01:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It isn't often when I find myself ahead of schedule. Usually I am pushing hard to get everything done in the time frame that I have more so than not made for myself. I am pretty good at being disciplined and more or less keeping to that schedule, although I allow it to fluctuate a bit one way or another. My "working weekend" must have paid off though because initially we weren't planning to do another website update until later this week. We found though that we had eno...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1503: This, That and the Other Thing

02-23-2015 01:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It snowed this weekend. We have another several inches of fresh snow over some icy rain that fell. It just can't seem to decide what to do outside, so it is doing everything. It is hard to believe that the weekend has gone by so quickly. Not so much because I didn't accomplish anything, but more so because I got so many things done. Lately I haven't been blogging much on the weekend only to give myself a break from the daily routine. I figure that will give me more to ta...
