Yesterday we had a wonderfully productive day. It had been a while since we had to do a large wholesale order, and I must admit that it was actually a lot of fun to do some ‘production type’ scroll sawing again.
My SLDP212 Summertime Strokework Bunnies pattern was accepted by Artist’s Club for their next catalog and we had to get the kits cut for stocking the warehouse so they would be there waiting by the time the catalog is released. We started out with an order for 150 kits, which means cutting about 1500 pieces.
We had a good supply of wood, but only enough to make about half the kits. I had ordered more a couple of weeks ago, but because of the goofy weather we are having, the delivery last week was cancelled and they only deliver to our side of the province one day a week. So hopefully it will come today and we can go to Bernie’s tomorrow to get it cut and prepped. That’s the plan, anyway.
Nonetheless, the pile looked pretty impressive at the end of the day:
I like cutting the little bunny silhouettes. There is so much that you can do with them! Not only the Summertime Strokework Bunny pattern:
I can think of so many other ways to decorate these fun little pieces as well!
Even when the weather outside is cold, it is fun to make these bright and cheery projects. It gives us something to look forward to and keeps us thinking ahead to warmer days.
Today I will be packaging these pieces, as well as finishing up another wood order for a customer. I have some designs to draw as well and I hope to get started on them.
The sun is out today, and it is calm and cool out. It is one of those days that looks warmer than it is, but I don’t really mind.
I hope you all have a great day. It’s the middle of the week already and before you know it, spring will be here.
Have a fantastic Wednesday!
