My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1395: Good Things Are Worth the Wait

09-03-2014 11:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I will keep things short here today because I have writing to do. I know I promised that the reindeer and sleigh pattern would be ready today, and it may be later on, but I probably won't really have everything done, including the site update, until tomorrow (Thursday). Sometimes things just take longer than expected. I will say though that the pattern will really be a nice one. I spent the day yesterday working on the 26 step-by-step photos that I will include with it. That is ...

"Wo kann ich Holz finden!?" or "Where can I find wood!?"

08-25-2011 05:02 PM by Ryan | 6 comments »

I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1391: Progress

08-29-2014 11:26 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I thought I did pretty well yesterday. Besides getting a lot of little things done, I made pretty good progress on my new sleigh. I found a really nice piece of cherry to cut the main part of the sleigh, and I am going to use walnut for the runners. I think that the contrast will look good. By the time I finished all the drawing up and got everything prepped for cutting and did all my errands, it was later in the afternoon. Sometimes just 'every day stuff' takes a little time to ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1457: #1456 More New Patterns

12-05-2014 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Today's post will be fast and furious.   (Umm – we'll see about that!)After posting yesterday and beginning working on the pattern packet for the SLD486 Merry Christmas Word Blocks: . . . a thought occurred to me.  While I had drawn up an entire alphabet for the SLD487 Alphabet Ornament Shapes  (well – two versions actually) I had only intended to include the letters for "Merry Christmas" in the other pattern. But I got to thinking . . . &q...

inlaying #2: inlaying part 2

04-15-2009 05:40 PM by kosta | 0 comments »

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaUYamXiPc8 In this video I go over how to cut the recess that the inlay goes in and I rough fit it using the scroll saw as a rasp or a chisel. I will fine tune it using a rasp because it is easier to get it just right on the scroll saw. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1405: Site (almost!) Updated

09-18-2014 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a crazy/busy day, with a few unexpected twists.  Those of you who read regularly know how much I love my three beautiful cats (Richard, Pancakes and Coco) and how much they are part of my everyday life. Like most pet owners, I consider them my 'fur babies' and they are wonderfully special to me.Lately though, Coco (my beautiful black long-haired girl) has been feeling under the weather. She has been vomiting more than usual (long haired cats in the autu...

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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1460: Bringing Joy Throughout the Year

12-11-2014 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are so many wonderful reasons that I take the time to write here nearly every day. Of course, in the beginning it was to get our little company more exposure and let more people know we are here. But as time progresses, I have come to realize the many, many other benefits of blogging. Not only have I been able to communicate better with my customers and bring them information regarding a variety of techniques, but I have made some real and lasting friendships as well. That – ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1344: More Sea Ornaments!

06-27-2014 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I spent the day yesterday refining the ornaments that I showed you in yesterday's blog. Those of you who have come to know me realize that I just can't do things one way. Keith often teases me because I think of so many variations of many of the different designs that I create, but when I think of several versions of doing things, it is hard for me to only make ONE – so I make them ALL! :)I know it takes longer to do and I don't really think it matters. Even after they are f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #778: Timing Is Everything

08-03-2012 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Sometimes the best thing you can do for a project is nothing. But that can also be the most difficult part of the process when you are anxious to see the outcome, or are on a schedule to get it finished. There have been many times when I have been guilty of rushing through something that I am making for one reason or another and I come to regret it. But as I get older (and supposedly wiser) and have more experience, I find that rushing through part of the process to finish is more often t...
