My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1343: I LOVE the Sea!

06-26-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Even though I was born and raised in the Midwest, I always loved the sea. From the time I was very young and took field trips with my class to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, to when I was a teen reading romance novels that were set in small seaside towns or villages, I dreamed of someday living near the ocean. After many years and what seems like several lifetimes, I have come to realize my dream. I now live in a small town on the Eastern coast of Nova Scotia, and the ocean is only about...

Getting my tools ready #14: How do I get the best out of an OLD DELTA 40-650 Type I? Need experienced advice!

06-06-2014 05:32 PM by DocSavage45 | 6 comments »

LJ’s I purchased a Delta C arm 18” scroll saw. It has been a misadventure born out of poverty. LOL! Have an intarsia, project in mind. It’s for an artist friend. An inlay into a box made from one of his great paintings. Purchased the 40-650 Type I Scroll Saw at least 3 months ago, maybe longer ( brought it home driving several hours in a blizzard). De rusted the aged metal table, painted and cleaned up the old girl. Looked good! The clamping mechanism and the cl...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1331: Website Updated

06-03-2014 12:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are times when I feel that I am not accomplishing all I set out to do.  It seems that there are times when one project or another is not coming together quickly enough, and I feel that I could be doing more.  But then there are other times when I look at the new things that we are continually adding to our website and I feel a bit better about things. When the final tally is made, we see the site growing nearly every day and we are adding several new things per month, includin...

My Beginning Days #4: Grizzly Tent Sale #1

05-20-2014 02:00 PM by Kaa162 | 8 comments »

I went to the Grizzly tent sale this weekend in PA. It was quite the experience. First, I spoke to a rep on the phone who suggested that I get there about an hour ahead of time… Try 2-3 hours. By the time we go there, there were at least 200 people in front of us. By the time the tent sale opened, the line was SUPER long. When the clock struck 8am, you have never witnessed a line move as fast as this one. We were so far back and yet it took seconds ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1309: A Painting and Woodworking Project Combined

05-04-2014 12:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

What a beautiful day by the river it was yesterday!   It was the kind of day that we typically think of as 'spring' but actually only occurrs once in a while.  The sun shone brightly all day long and the air was calm and warm.  You didn't even need a jacket really.  It was the type of day we all have been waiting for during the long, cold winter.  I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was happy that I felt much better as well. Whatever got hold of me on Friday s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1308: A New Scroll Sawing Blog and a Free Pattern

05-03-2014 10:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was feeling a bit under the weather yesterday and not quite myself. It was nothing to worry about, and I think it was just a passing thing as today I feel much more 'normal'.  Fortunately, it doesn't happen often, as I accomplished very little in the way of work.  I suppose though that a good rest was needed as it seemed to have done the trick and today should be a great day. As a result, I have no progress reports on what I am working on.  I guess that goes ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1307: A New Idea in the Works

05-02-2014 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up to a dense fog this morning.  I hope it means that it is finally getting warmer. Our weather here in Nova Scotia has still been pretty dull and rainy. But I suppose I should be happy that it isn't snow. Even I have had enough of that. It felt odd to be 'caught up' with everything. It isn't that I don't have anything to do – as I have lots of new ideas that I am anxious to work on – but with nothing really pressing, I find that sometimes it s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1306: Some Woodworking Designs for Newer Scrollers

05-01-2014 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It always feels so good when I finish accomplishing my deadlines.  Whether self-imposed or work that I have to get done for others, I try to treat them with equal importance and prioritize them accordingly. Lately it seems that I have been spinning many different plates.  I know some of you who know me don't see that as being very unusual – and it reality it is not – but sometimes it just kind of gets to me when there isn't a break for a while.  I think...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1304: Really? You made THAT with a Scroll Saw!?!

04-29-2014 11:00 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

My goodness I had FUN yesterday! I always have fun, but yesterday pushed the day to another level. It felt so good to see the ideas that have been living in my head come to life. And they came out even CUTER than I could have ever imagined. I have been thinking about these designs for several weeks now. After seeing the darling embossed paper from a shop on Etsy (Ravenwood Treasures#) the wheels in my head were really turning! I immediately ordered some paper and began planning on h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1303: Paper Roses

04-28-2014 12:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

The weekend turned out to be incredibly productive. I love when that happens. What started out as a bottleneck of cluttered ideas that had me in a muddle soon began to flow in a good direction. By taking some time and sorting through them and considering them one at a time, I was able to move things forward in an orderly manner. And I am very happy with the results. Sometimes, I have to stop looking at the entire forest at once. It is utterly confusing to me and tends to stop me in my ...
