My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #105: A Silver Lining After a Dismal Day

09-16-2010 02:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Well, yesterday turned out to be a day where things just don’t go right. I know we have all had those days, and it was just my turn apparently. I wasn’t any one thing in particular. Just a lot of little things that added up I guess. I did get all my cutting done, and that was a good part of the day. But in between cutting there were several messages that weren’t what I called positive. I can see my computer screen from where I cut, and I check in on messages every on...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #103: Change of Seasons

09-14-2010 01:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

With the cooler weather arriving, it is a pleasure to see more and more people getting back to their shops and starting to work on projects again. As you regular readers know, summer is probably my least favorite season. I know that isn’t a popular opinion, but I have never been one to go along with the masses so I guess it is somewhat expected that I am not really fond of summer. From what I hear from my friends and customers in the States, it was for the most part a really brutal su...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #101: Seeing Others Blossom

09-12-2010 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Again, I want to thank you all for the nice comments and private messages regarding my 100th blog post yesterday. I do enjoy talking to you every morning and although every day isn’t filled with making woodworking projects, sometimes it is really nice to share a good story or talk about something totally unrelated. I am happy you all like to read about the other things too. Today I have a good story to tell. I think it is a good story anyway, and it made me feel very happy. A c...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #5: "Edouard" and "Dora"

09-08-2010 02:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Well, it looks as if I was right! Pierre seems to have gotten a little too reckless and knocked poor Edouard over! What a nuisance! From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures But thank goodness Dora is there to help him get back on his feet. You know what they say . . . behind every great man is a woman! (Well, at least the women say that!) From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #95: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars

09-06-2010 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Finally. A Monday that people like. With the Labor Day holiday both here and in the United States, most everyone in these countries have the day off. However, with the Labor Day holiday comes the realization that summer is coming to a close and winter is not far off. I am certain that there will be plenty of grumblings about that on my facebook page. They already have started. I am ready for fall and winter. The past week was enough summer for me. I guess I found something that I di...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #87: "The Grizz"

08-29-2010 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am still kind of slow today. It is funny how you go away for only a day and it takes you several to catch up again. I am not complaining though. It is good to be missed. Not only by the cats, but also by friends and others. It was funny but when I left on Friday morning, there was one email in my mail box. I was totally caught up on correspondence and getting back to people that I needed to talk to and all. When I got home, there were over 40 things there for me. About half of it was...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #84: The "Magic List" is Working

08-26-2010 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Sometimes things go just right. After writing here yesterday, it seemed to turn out to be one of those days. I actually accomplished all that I set out to do and even though I didn’t have time to paint in the evening, I had to fight the feeling (once again) that I didn’t set my goals high enough or plan enough work for the day because I actually accomplished all of it. Maybe the “Magic List” is just doing what it is supposed to be doing – working! Is it that...
