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...

Another 52 Weeks #8: Getting a lot done but not finishing anything

02-23-2015 02:30 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

I know I missed last week. Too much weather and not enough time. But here I am back again, the week turned out to be pretty good even with all the bad weather. Wound up having an extra day off and wife and daughter were away this weekend so in between dealing with the weather I was able to spend a lot of time in the shop and I got a lot done just didn’t finish much.. sounds strange right well here is what I mean. I got 32 pen blanks cut, drilled and tubes glued into them.. The...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1502: Working on Some New Designs

02-20-2015 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today's post will be a bit short, I am afraid. Not because I have been idle, but much the opposite. I find that when I design lately, I work on a certain theme and wind up doing several different projects in that style. I am not sure if that is good or bad. On one hand it makes me feel kind of 'wishy-washy' because I can't seem to settle on one version. On the other hand, it is nice to be able to design a project for scrollers, and then be able to offer a painter's ve...

How to Plans at Matt’s Basement Workshop

02-17-2015 07:24 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

For years I have watch the working podfather Matt Vanderlist, build things in his basement workshop. Many times as he is building a project some of his viewers ask him if he would provide plans of his projects. I can understand the hurtle he faced in providing plans, sitting down and drawing a complete set of how to plans is a huge time commitment, on top of his video editing schedule. As I was drawing some concepts drawings for a client, it hit me. Why don’t I offer to draw plans for h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1499: After the Storm

02-17-2015 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After the last few days of snow and wind, it finally seems to have calmed down here. As I look outside this morning, everything is calm and the sun is shining brightly. What a beautiful winter day it is! I am happy to say that our winter storm wasn't that bad for us. While I know it was a hard on many (and I feel badly for that) we were fortunate that we were safe and warm and power was uninterrupted throughout the duration. Adele was able to get to the wharf finally and check on the...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1498: Snowed In

02-16-2015 01:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I never mind the snow very much. Being from Chicago, I am used to polar temperatures as well as blistering heat and humidity. Anyone who grew up in Chicago knows that it is just part of life, and the old saying "if you don't like the weather – just wait – it will be different in a couple of hours" is one that really put things in perspective living in The Windy City.  I suppose that is why I take things like the weather in stride. When I moved here to Nova Scoti...
