My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1145: Black Beauty

10-05-2013 10:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 31 comments »

I know . . . I am a spoiled brat! At least I feel that way this morning. How can I not when I am so fortunate to now own a “Special Edition” of the FINEST scroll saws made? Oh – and it is actually PRETTY as well! After all, for someone like me who’s other job is an artist, it is an extra bonus to have such a fine piece of machinery color coordinate with the rest of the house. Especially since it sits in the corner of my kitchen. Ah . . . but now I am sounding lik...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1144: Finishing Up Drawing my New Designs

10-04-2013 10:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It’s funny how those appointments (no matter how early they are) can mess up the entire day. Yesterday I had an early eye appointment, and even though it only lasted for an hour or so, it took quite a while to get back on track. My eyes have been giving me minor problems lately and it was time anyway for my annual checkup. I find that I am having a bit of trouble reading the computer screen – even with my glasses or contacts and as a result, in the past weeks I have been send...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1138: Site Update Complete!

09-27-2013 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

What a busy day yesterday was again! Once again, the week just flew by and here we are looking at Friday again already. I try to take time to enjoy these autumn days, but with so much to do, I seem to get wrapped up in things and before I know it, the day is over. As I look back though, I did get a lot of things done. I finished putting together my last packet for the new site update and also was able to write the newsletter and get it out by late afternoon. Writing the newsletter is co...

Fibonacci Mosaic box #1: Design and piece cutting

09-15-2013 03:32 PM by BritBoxmaker | 14 comments »

This is a real-time blog, that is I am blogging as I am working on the project. As it is my own design I respectfully request that anyone wishing to copy it waits until I have posted the finished project. I’ve made this design using part of the Fibonacci series of numbers; that is specifically 1,2,3,5,8, as proportions for the parts of this mosaic box. It’s going to be an EZ Mitre box so here is the plan for the initial board Starting at 1 for the diameter of the centra...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1106: Did Someone Say . . . "BLING?"

08-15-2013 11:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

You KNOW I had to do it! I had those twelve nice plaques just staring at me from the table. I like them a lot. Sometimes with my new patterns, if I am really pleased with the results, I just keep them out a little bit and I admire them. This lasts about a week or so (Except with patterns that I really like and intend to keep – like my Polar Bear Pull Toy which I wouldn’t part with for the world!) (Just mentioning him gave me an excuse to show him! He is packed away unti...
