My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1119: You Don't Have a Thing If You Ain't Got That BLING!

334 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Sometimes everything just works out how it should. I suppose that some could argue that things always work out how they are supposed to, but sometimes that isn’t how you would like. This time I was fortunate that this project was both. When I think of a project, I usually have a picture of how I want it to look in my head. Sometimes that picture is fuzzy. Sometimes it is really clear. Most of the time, during the designing process, it evolves into something else and by the time it ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1117: Amazing Grace

336 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Working with the scroll saw never ceases to amaze me. While many ‘hard core’ woodworkers tend to look at the scroll saw as a lowly lightweight tool of the woodworking industry, I can think of nothing that comes close to matching its ability to turn a clunky block of wood into something that is filled with such beauty and grace. In hearing the term “woodworking” the first that comes to mind usually isn’t the word “graceful”. But every time I use th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1114: New Design for the Magazine and Lots of Other Things

339 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today was the first day of the season that I woke up and it was still pitch dark outside. Even though I am nearly through my first cup of coffee, it still is just now barely getting light. Another sure sign that summer is weaning and autumn and winter are quickly approaching. I need to write quickly today, as the day is already full and looks as if it will be a busy one. My dear kitty Coco is having some problems and I had to call the vet last night. The problems didn’t seem emerge...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1107: Catching Up With Project Posting

350 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I am terrible at keeping up with posting my projects. I always try to wait until they are up on the site, and then I find I am usually buried deep into the next project and forget about it completely. While many of you read and keep up with the blog here every day, there are also many more who don’t and come to me and ask to find something that I had made an entry about previously. I never mind that, but it makes me realize that I do need to keep my gallery on Lumberjocks up to date...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1104: Damask Plaque Patterns are Posted on My Site

353 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Today’s post will be fairly brief. I need to get to it and write and send out the newsletter from our site today announcing the new patterns. I had a really good response from people yesterday and many are anxious to get their copies. I am really happy about this, as I also really like the new designs. I think they are both fun to cut and nice to look at once they are done. The four new patterns for the Damask Silhouette plaques are as follows: SLD434 Songbirds: SLD435 Ki...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1103: The "Perfect" Weekend

354 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

What an incredible weekend I had! It was a combination of accomplishing, relaxing, beautiful weather, good food, a Saturday night “date” and even some beach thrown in. I can think of little more that would have made it much better. It started off like any other weekend. However, the weather was absolutely supreme. It was sunny and warm, without being either too hot or humid, and it made Saturday just an all around pleasant day. Keith had to run into work for a couple of hour...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1094: Damask Pattern Finished

364 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I was pretty happy yesterday. I actually set some goals and stuck tot them and I got everything accomplished that I set out to do. By the time I was finished it was about 10pm. That left just enough time for me to unwind a bit and visit with my friends online before heading off to bed. I know that every day can’t be like that, but once in a while it is nice to know that it can work. The one thing that is the top of my list that I did accomplish was creating the pattern for the trio ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1093: Decisions, Decisions

365 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I am going to try to make this post brief, as I have a lot of things I want to accomplish today. I got a bit of a later start because I slept a little later than usual this morning. I was up for a bit last night and I suppose I caught up in the morning. But that’s OK. Apparently I needed the little bit of extra sleep. I wouldn’t want to be crabby. ;) I pretty much finished up my plaque set yesterday. I had intended to finish up by dinner and spend the evening doing some of m...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1091: Better Late Than Never

367 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Today’s post will be really, really quick! I was just beginning to write and a big storm came through our area. It went from light to dark very quickly and the rain came down in buckets for a bit. Naturally, I shut things down and unplugged them, as it wasn’t worth the risk to keep online. In any case, all has passed and it has calmed down and I am going to write quickly and briefly (Yes – I can!) just to tell you a couple of things that I wanted to share with you. Fir...
