Hello. I've missed this space in the last week. And, it's been a very long week around here. Very busy. I'm nursing a little cold and still, plowing onward.
I sewed more in one week than I think I ever have in one week. The orders all come at once. Always. It's a bit of a joke. Really, someone, somewhere must be laughing about it. I'm dealing with it by way of a double gin and tonic after the kids are in bed. Brad says I don't need to fill the orders right away. It's a nice thing to argue about. I'm a capricorn. It's a problem.
So. I started doing the t-shirts and onesies. A whole confusing thing in it's own. A horse that needs to be tamed, shall we say- as far as selling to retail. The stores that have actually ordered baby clothes are being so kind to me as a fumble on, trying to be professional, and not knowing what the foo I'm doing. Yes. What the foo. When people are kind, I can learn the ropes. It's that simple.
The quilts have sold off. One left, a smaller one. Don't you need it?? It's in the store. I'm too tired to add a link in the post. Find my Etsy link up above.
I want to garden, but I need to update my website. I need to talk a long walk, but I want to take a hot bath. I really probably should just take a really long nap, but the local paper is interviewing me in an hour about my sewn sketches. It's good to get the exposure but it's embarrassing too. I know they'll take an awful photo and I'll look like a weird crafting mom. Oh. But I guess that's what I am. Damn it! I can't wait to show you the photo so we can both laugh about it (but I'll be crying.)
So how have you been? I've really missed my friends out there this week. I want to know everything and I am hoping later tonight I'll be able to peek in on your blogs and catch up. This next week will be busy too, but perhaps not as busy. And perhaps this is just life now and I need to get used to it.
You'll have to deal with just one photo today. A new take on an owl.
Sharing more soon.
