Smile Hi, I am new

Hello everyone!
I just found this side and i am very impressed . There are so many high quality projects in here! You may excuse my english ...i am from germany so it is a little bit dificult for me.I scroll since two years more or less...most decoration stuff .Now i try to make my own portrait patterns. I am especialy intressted in making animal patterns and find it quite difficult. I think this is a great place to learn a lot about scrolling.
Wish you all a nice day,
simone

hi tony,
thanks for your welcome.i am using a proxxon dsh e.I think its is a good one...but i never used another one so i couldnt compare. The pros on christmas markets here are using hegner but its too expensive for me.Are there a lot of scroller in ireland? In germany its not a common hobby so there is not much variety in patterns.
