My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1421: Time Travel

10-13-2014 10:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

After celebrating Thanksgiving the past two days here in Canada, I feel refreshed and ready to get back to some serious designing. Even though it is still the early part of October, I know how quickly this time of year seems to pass as we busy ourselves for the upcoming holiday season. I am always amazed at how the pace seems to pick up this time of year and time passes even quicker than usual. It is sometimes difficult for me because I always seem to have so many different ideas that I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1419: New Patterns Up on Our Site

10-09-2014 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's blog will just be a short announcement that all the new patterns are available on our site. I have received lots of emails from those of you asking when they would be ready, and they all are at this time. We added several new patterns to the site and we are very proud of them. There are some holiday patterns, as well as some for general occasions. Keith's SLDK396 Self-Framing Love Always plaque pattern would be great for a wedding gift, anniversary, or any time you just w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1418: Finishing Up

10-08-2014 11:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I kept myself pretty busy yesterday finishing up the new projects that I created for the site update. Today I will be writing the instructions for them and hopefully getting a newsletter out either later on tonight or early tomorrow. We have been trying to send out a newsletter every other week or so, as we feel that time frame is comfortable for our customers and is a good goal to complete our next round of designs. Now that we don't have Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine to think a...

My daughter Erin came out to the shop and scrolled me some Christmas ornaments for a charity event my Guild participates in each year.She is a natural-born artist, and I don’t have to tell you how much it means for her to come out there and join me in the shop every once in a while.Music playing, beautiful weather, & having great company in the shop equals a very nice morning.I am very blessed.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1417: Two New Candle Tray Patterns and a New Plaque

10-07-2014 11:20 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday I had a little change of plans. While I had intended to finish up the Gothic Bat Pillar Candle holders, I kind of got side tracked and decided to do some more cutting instead.  I had not added to my regular candle trays in quite a while – even though I have many more ideas, and when I created the pillar candle holders, I also thought that a similar design would translate to a candle tray as well. So the other morning when I was up early I decided to draw up a designs, as ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1416: Gone Batty Candle Holders

10-06-2014 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After another beautiful autumn weekend here in Nova Scotia, I am ready to start a brand new week. I had a very productive couple of days, as I was able to draw up two new candle tray patterns and work on my new project that I had shown you all on Friday. I also had several sizable wood orders which will be shipped out today so I spent much of the afternoon yesterday at the scroll saw. It's all good. I really enjoy providing wood for people. While it does take me away from designing a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1414: Autumn Has Arrived

10-03-2014 11:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Did I mention that October is my favorite month of the year?I love the cool, crisp weather and the warm and rich colors of autumn. Living here in Nova Scotia, we have an abundance of hard wood trees that paint our countryside with a beautiful array of fall colors. Just now, they are really starting to change color. As I look across the river, I can see green, yellow, pink and orange. It is that perfect time of year when the leaves are still on the trees, but displaying a vibrant palette. I wi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1413: Welcome October!

10-01-2014 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe that we are beginning a new month already! September seemed to pass by so quickly, and before we know it, we will be into the holiday season. It has been such a busy month for us here, and I am sure that is why the time flew by so fast. It seems that I have been going non-stop and one day just bleeds into the next. I am not complaining at all though, as I have been very happy that there have been so many opportunities ahead. After the closing of the magazine, I must...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1412: My All Season Tree - Halloween, 2014

09-30-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...

Scroll saw projects #1: First project - Notre Dame Clock

09-30-2014 06:20 AM by whitcombbasses | 4 comments »

This is a first on more than one aspect. My first project blog and first serious scroll saw project. I bought my scroll saw about 3 years ago and hadn’t used it until a few days ago. It’s a Grizzly model and works fairly well for its price point. But anyways, just wanted to capture the build process on this elaborate fretwork for my current level of woodworking. Hope you follow along. This is on 1/4” ply and this is one of any holes I need to saw out. Hopefully I can get...
