Hi my name is Chris and I’m new to Lumberjocks and am not fully up to speed with this website, but sadly a tragedy in a friends life has prompted me to post sooner than anticipated and I would like some heartfelt help please.
My friends 8 week old baby called Carys (a name which means ‘Love’) has sadly passed away and my wife has been asked to read out a poem at their funeral (see below) and I was hoping to make something personal as a gift of celebration for baby Carys’s short life.
The poem reads;
The world may never notice
But every life that ever forms,
The little one we longed for
And though our arms are empty,
I am open to all any any ideas but I would like something nice and not tacky. I was ideally thinking of creating a single 3D Snowdrop in a vase but I’m new to scroll sawing and have no idea of how to do this and nor do I have any plans. I’ve done compound cuts on the scroll saw before however I don’t have a plan that could make this.
Carys’s funeral is on Wednesday 16th Dec 2015 which is why I am asking for your sincere urgent help. I would be very grateful indeed if anybody could provide me with plans to make this, or indeed with plans for any other ideas that would fit around this poem. Carys’s parents also want the funeral attenders to have a splash of pink so I will be looking to incorporate this colour into any design I have.
I realise I don’t have much time, but then I want to be able to give something from the heart so I hope you can help me.
I know I should’t publish my email address but I’m quite prepared to be spammed in the hope that someone could help me.
Yours with thanks and wishes
If you can help with designs/ideas/patterns or anything else I will not send on your patterns or make them public as I realise some of you make a living from this.
Thank you to all who have taken the time to read this
