Right, I am now officially in full scale panic mode. Sauntering along I was, must have been because I seem to have been stitching forever and believe me I have no evidence of it. So today I emptied more stuff out of the shop, so much stuff that soon there will be no shop at all. I must say I feel a little bit better now, 6 brooches added to the pile and a few cushions. You wait though, there are pincushions still in there that will probably be kidnapped next! Well, it's my shop and I can empty it if I want......no need to worry it will probably all have to be put back in there when I return. Then there is this, my blog. The time I spend doing this, what could I make? I did consider leaving this for a while, too busy, but I can't can I. If it wasn't for this blog Sparkle wouldn't be happening, this feeds just about everything I do, this is how people know who I am. So here I am rambling on again with my tiddly little bit of production for this week. Let me introduce you to another fragment. Answer a question for me, am I overdoing this fragment thing?? I only have four finished ones, yes honestly, only four yet I seem to have been doing them forever. I have another, (quite different) one damp stretching too but five fragments don't make for a two day and one evening fair do they. Do I sound like I'm moaning? I hope not because I'm not honest. I am just venting my frustration and seeking reassurance. So here it is, fragment number?????....
Making these puffs really made me happy they are so soft and squashy. I bet everyone wants to feel them, makes them dirty and renders them unsellable!! I shall have to practice my best cross and angry face! I am not putting anything behind cellophane at Sparkle. No bags or anything on the display. I know this is probably a risky thing to do but the work looks too commercial wrapped in plastic, I will have to risk it, I will have to be careful not to overdo the frosty cold stare though because it's certain to put people off and then I will wonder why nobody bought anything! (too scared of the horrible woman behind the table)
It's back to work in the morning wishing my life away and for wednesday to come quickly. I never get much done on work days, (creative wise that is) so it's a good job I have an unseen fragment to post later in the week. There are lists to make, tickets, stickers, canvas, fishing line, business cards...if you can think of anything else please share!
I am going to leave you with a link, call it gratuitous self promotion if you like but check out these amazing words about me, yes me, can't quite believe it myself either. x
Monday evening......thanks so much for the comments and e-mails about the touching problems etc. I'm sorry to say I probably won't have time to get back to you this week but I really appreciate them all and will eventually thank you personally I promise. I love the ''touching samples'' suggestion but fear I won't have time to make any. I am taking everything on board though, thanks so much I knew you wouldn't let me down. See you soon x
