I made these ornaments from a pattern I purchased from Sheila Landry. It was a great learning experience in getting sharp corners on the scroll saw. The teddy bear was made from mahogany and the others from cedar. I sure hope I did the patterns justice!

More nice projects. I get the distinct impression someone is getting ready for an outstanding Christmas.

You did more than justice to them Anna! (Actually they are Keith’s patterns) They really came out beautiful!

Great job!

Thanks Charles and Sheila. Sheila, my apologies to Keith for not giving him recognition for the patterns! The little changes that I made to the Christmas tree ornament was to cover up a cutting error! I call it creative thinking! I’m looking forward to doing Keith’s Filigree angels and nativity set.

No worries, Anna! We work as a team and we realize that some people don’t distinguish us from each other sometimes. I just wanted to mention that those were his designs to be sure people knew how good he is. :) I also want to say that I LOVE what you did with the trees! They look wonderful with the embellishments on them. You did a great job! :)
