  • And heeeeere''s Rocky ...

    Just to show that occasionally I do cut something other than puzzles ... a cute raccoon .. one of Sheila Bergner Landry's forest leaf patterns ..

    I just cut 6 different ones over the last couple of days - this is the only one I've finished off and put the backer on yet though .. am I alone in liking cutting better than finishing?

      Hi Ian, you are not alone. Great job on Rocky. These are quite fun projects to cut. I have a post in the general scroll saw area called gallery of little leaves. Here is my version with a differant color backer. Steve

        Yes I saw your collection, Steve - very nice. I haven't quite been as busy as that ... In fact it was after seeing some of yours that I decided to get some more leaf patterns. I had a couple already.

        So far I've cut the raccoon, the eagle head, the bear, the tree frog and the elk.
        The only one I'm a bit disappointed with is the elk pattern - it seems to lack something and I don't like the eye for some reason.

        They are nice to cut though - quite quick and the veining lines in most places of the ones I've done start in a cut out section which makes life easy ..

        How did you get the US flag backer that's on one of the collection of leaves - is it painted?

          Hi Ian, yes the flag is painted. When you get the pattern there will be a paint pattern included. There are still a lot of them that I have not had the chance to do yet. I also agree about the elk it seems to need to be more broadside or something. Steve

                Maple Leaf

                Hi Ian, here is a turkey out of my little leaf collection in a maple leaf. A friend of mine had this one in an older issue of one of the magazines. I am not sure which issue or which magazine. I will try to find out for you. I have not seen this pattern offered anywhere else. Steve

                  LOL .. Steve - I think you misunderstood - I meant for the backer - the maple leaf as on the Canadian flag rather than the stars and stripes.... since I'm in Canada ..

                  I don't think the Union Jack would look right behind a bald eagle somehow .. since they ain't in England We have golden eagles but in all my years in England I only ever saw one - what a beautiful bird! They have a similar wingspan to the bald eagle ..

                  I do like that turkey though - I noticed it amongst your collection when I looked - nice veining on the tail. Don't recall seeing it on Sheila's site which is where I got my other patterns ..

                          In regards to the turkey pattern. It was at one time a free downloadable pattern from somewhere for a month. It is also available from Sheila Landry Designs through her site. Ask for item number FL#161 .As of right now, that is the final pattern in her forest leaf series, and it really is a beauty, my favorite one at least. If you need a link to her site, I can zap you one through PM, or you can google her. Dale

                            Thanks Dale but where are you finding FL161? I've just looked again and the forest leaf patterns seem to stop at FL160 ... am I missing something??

                                Well ... I am SO glad we tempered our enthusiasm. Show is cancelled. Apparently, things did not go as planned. Maybe next year.
