« Part 1103: The "Perfect" Weekend Part 1104 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1105: A Very Full Day »

Today’s post will be fairly brief. I need to get to it and write and send out the newsletter from our site today announcing the new patterns. I had a really good response from people yesterday and many are anxious to get their copies. I am really happy about this, as I also really like the new designs. I think they are both fun to cut and nice to look at once they are done.

The four new patterns for the Damask Silhouette plaques are as follows:

SLD434 Songbirds:

SLD435 Kitties

SLD436 Butterflies

And SLD437 Hummingbirds

I am also offering a better price if people want to buy all four patterns. Since I designed 12 distinct Damask designs, I think that there is a lot that people can do with them. As I stated in an earlier blog, even though the designs are offset on some of the plaques, I did include the complete line work for all three motifs so that you can use them in other ways. I hope this makes people happy. :) The Set Product (SLDDASet1) is right on the home page of our site.

I want to thank everyone for all the positive responses to these. It really makes a girl feel good when I work hard on something and it is so well-received. It is great motivation to do even better on the next project and it feels good to know that I am doing something that you all like.

Have a wonderful day today. It is foggy and cool out. So much like autumn it is scary. It is still a bit too early to think about that, although it is right around the corner.

Happy Tuesday and thanks again!

Very nice Sheila shared the link to FB straight away

This is a style that I really like, minds me of a Victorian
style and with this project I could do with as set for the
Parlor. I wonder if young Ryan might be able to do it :)

Thank you Jamie. I am glad you like them.

I think that the designs are rather forgiving. The swirls and curves are rather abstract and slight variances from the design wouldn’t really be evident. I tried to leave enough room between the cut outs so that if slight mistakes are made, there would be little consequence. Also, it may sound bad but the overlay pieces can cover any significant boo boo’s!

I am going to apply some crystal rhinestones on a couple of mine here “just to see” and I may show them in the morning. I think that the little bit of sparkle will really finish them off and make them look cool. But you know me . . . I love to sparkle!

Today I will be writing the announcement in the newsletter and then thinking about what is next. I have a couple of ideas, but i don’t know which one to attack first! (Good dilemma!)

I wish you a wonderful day today, Jamie! Enjoy what it brings!

Good morning Sheila,
Just love the new designs. I will be ordering shortly. I think the cats ones will go over big time at the craft shows. I have a regular following for anything cats. I have started getting the shop set up and the scroll area is first to get cleared and power so I can cut in between setting up other areas. I can,t wait to see what you will come up with next. Have a good day.

Good morning to you Rick! Thank you as always for the ideas and inspirations. I am glad you think the cats will go over well. I believe they are my favorites. I love cats as you know and I tend to shy away from too many cat projects because I would be doing so many cats people wouldn’t even bother to look anymore! LOL Sometimes all I need is for someone to suggest a cat project and I am right there! :D

Glad to hear you are getting things set up. I know it has been a difficult year of adjustment for you, and I am glad to see you focusing on the things that make you happy. You are always in my fond thoughts and I consider you a good friend.

Take care and have a good day today!

Sheila

Also, ... the overlay pieces can cover any significant boo boo’s!
This is like getting permission from the teacher to cheat! ;) Thanks Teach! Around here we call boo boo’s our Persian Flaw. Put there, sometimes, on purpose because only God is perfect.
Have a great day Sheila!

Good morning Sheila. I will be getting the full set of these patterns as I can think of so many ways of using them. I love the damask patterns and the overlays are great. Looking forward to seeing how you sparkle them!
Enjoy the day.

Thank you all very much for your thoughts. I apologize for being so late in responding, but things got really busy yesterday afternoon/evening and I didn’t get a chance until now.

I also like the layered effects Martyn. The self-framing things are really a nice type of project, because they look so complete without having to purchase or make a separate frame. There is so much you can do in the frame itself to add to the project as well.

Thank you very much Candy and Anna. I always appreciate your thoughts. Anna – I can’t wait to see what you do with them. I am sure it will be really cool!

Have a great day! Sheila
