The weather finally warmed up in Florida long enough for me to finish my Valentines.

The first pattern is by Joe Preston and was published in Creative Woodworks and Crafts April 2006. The pattern is fantastic and is based on German paper cutting techniques called “Scherenshnitte.” A lot of detailed fretwork make this a very special valentine.

The second pattern is a simple design by Tom Zeig and was published in a book called Scroll Saw Christmas Ornaments. I stack cut a lot of these as remembrances for my mother to hand out to her fellow residents at her assisted living facility.

Good work I have seen a few books on scroll cutting, some of the stuff I would never be able to do.
