My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1451: Meet "Aurora"

11-26-2014 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

My goodness yesterday just flew by! It was one of those days when I was busy from the moment I awoke and before I knew it, it was getting dark out. I had several things happening at once, and after I returned from my errands, I got my new design ready to cut on the saw. But after I had things all lined up on my wood pieces, I saw that some revisions were needed on the pattern and the old cliche of "back to the drawing board" rang true. After tweaking things a bit, I was able to...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1450: More New Scroll Saw Designs!

11-25-2014 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Today's post is going to be rather short (well – by my standards anyway!)  Both Keith and I are working very hard to get some more new designs to you for your holiday crafting. Keith just finished a beautiful new set of ornaments that are in his very popular filigree style. I believe he finished up the pattern last night and he should be making them available on the site sometime later today. I think they are just stunning: I also have been working on a couple of new sc...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1448: Different Strokes for Different Folks

11-20-2014 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a very busy day yesterday. But it was the kind of day that was also a great deal of fun. (I have had a lot of those lately!) I spent the majority of it decorating my new SLD485 Holiday Lights Damask ornaments that I previewed to you yesterday. I had cut several sets of them because I knew I wanted to play with them and experiment with many of the wonderful finishes that I had here from DecoArt and hot fix rhinestones from Rhinestone Canada.  I had several ideas of how I wanted to d...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1447: Slow and Steady

11-19-2014 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am the first to admit that I am not a fast worker. Be it painting, scroll sawing, sewing or anything else, I find that it usually takes me quite a bit longer than the average person to accomplish most things.I also admit that it used to bother me, but as I get older, it doesn't seem to do so as much anymore. As we accumulate large quantities of what we are making, adding to the pile just seems to . . . well . . . add to the pile and sometimes I feel that things lose their 'spec...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1446: New Ornaments in the Works

11-18-2014 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today's post is going to be short (I promise!) I am busy at the drawing table creating a new pattern of ornaments for the scroll sawyers. My friend Leldon requested it and I always like to do what I can to accommodate him. He helps me so much with going over our patterns and proof reading for me. It is hard to proof read your own patterns. Especially for people like Keith and myself who crate so many of them. We try to keep a similar format to them and be consistent, but sometimes wh...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1445: "Winter is Coming"

11-17-2014 02:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I know those are not words that all of us like hearing. But long before Game of Thrones was ever thought of, Keith used to tease me because I used that phrase frequently this time of year as I purchased extra essentials and prepared for the long, cold days ahead when we may not be able to get to the store. Being prepared is important and coming from Chicago, I was no stranger to sudden snow squalls which left the area crippled for sometimes several days. Now living in rural Nova Scotia, I fee...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #65: Calculating Material Cost

11-13-2014 02:24 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I am sure that this issue has been beaten to death but I wish for one more try. When calculating material cost do you calculate the actual material required for the project or the amount of material you will need to purchase? Case in point. I build doll furniture but that really does not matter. I calculated the actual material needed and came out to $11.00. I calculated the material required to purchase and would need to purchase $30.00 to have enough. Now I always know I can and will ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1439: New Patterns are Posted

11-07-2014 01:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I intended to write a post yesterday, but I had a Java update that played a little havoc on my computer. Nothing major, but their attempt to install unwanted software really kind of irked me. I hate when companies try to sneak something on to your computer that you don't want. It is deceptive and I think a very poor practice. Unfortunately, Java script is a program that most of us need to function online and because of that, we are forced to have it (and all that it brings with it) on our...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1437: Half Way There

11-04-2014 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday was a busy, yet positive day. Mondays are always busy because we have the trip to the post office, the bank, shopping and the gym. I like getting these things out of the way though and it puts me on a good track for the rest of the week. I was really anxious to get home though, as I couldn't wait to begin cutting out my new designs. Because of all the errands though, I didn't get started until mid afternoon. I decided to do the sleighs using maple for the sleigh be...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1436: Ready to Cut

11-03-2014 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I  had a wonderful, relaxing and productive day yesterday. Whatever was bothering me last week has certainly passed and I was on a good roll with drawing. While I drew the basic shapes on Saturday, I took the entire day yesterday to refine and detail things out.  I am now ready to get to the scroll saw. I am truly excited about this new set of ornaments. Each one was drawn with the utmost care. I believe each one will be a little 'masterpiece' in itself.  I had ...
