« Part 1099: Finishing up Drawing Part 1100 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1101: Progress »

Today’s post will be short and sweet. I have a full day ahead of me (probably 2!) of cutting out the nine plaques that I drew up this past week.

The plaques consist of three sets of three plaques each, in the same Damask style as the bird plaques that I featured here last week. Each set will have a unique frame shape (although the three in each set will match) and each of the nine motifs will be unique. This, I feel will give customers the best value, as there are a total of 12 distinct Damask style designs that they can apply to other projects. I didn’t want to cheat. :)

Below is a sample of one of the plaques:

I have a lot of work ahead of me, so I want to get right to it and get cutting. It will be interesting to see how long I can take to cut these. It will sort of be a mini-challenge to myself.

I’ll stop in from time to time on breaks, but for the most part of the day, I will be at the saw.

(You all know that is my ‘happy place!’)

I wish you all a wonderful day. :)

Thank you all for the cheers. I am sorry I didn’t answer yesterday, but I was working like a little machine here and didn’t get back to the computer very much. I made progress, as you will see in the next post – and will be finishing up today. :) I really appreciate your comments though! :)
