I'm tired, really tired at the moment.....it's a case of being able to see the finish line but trying to summon the energy to get there!! The 'ready to ship' era is fast approaching and I have to complete quite a bit of work by the end of October so I can start November with not a single item to make apart from stock for my Etsy store.
I've done some counting back and I believe it has been close to 3.5 years since I had a clean order book. Even when I started out dover & madden....when it originally had no name, I always was knitting some sort of order for someone. A friend, someone from a mother's group, a work colleague....there just hasn't been a time when I haven't had a free moment. My last holiday I even took work away with me and that was well over 18 months ago. So with that all in mind, I'm just focusing on the prize of a wee bit of spare time in the near future!
This week has been a little bit of a stretch, I've had to send 3 hats over to Jodi at Che and Fidel for a project she has coming up.....(so expect to see little Poet sporting some d&m head wear next Winter). One of those hats was completing new little PURDEY in a bigger size without doing all the in between sizes, and then writing the pattern out as I go...got there in the end....but a 3.23am finish has sort of thrown my week out.....probably explains why I'm tired....along with the extra shifts I've done at my casual job....all up it's been a lot of hours of work.
Anyway that is enough of me whinging....it's Saturday afternoon, I have another day of work tomorrow, then a restful and relaxing Monday and Tuesday....it is my birthday on Tuesday, I have no plans....just a quiet day.

Vicki, you have incredible talent with a ball of wool and some knitting needles, or a crochet hook. It's no wonder your work is in such demand. And your eye for colour and colour coordination is beyond compare. And we love you for it.ReplyDelete
One of my very special customers....I believe you came under the work colleague and friend category. Thanks Margaret for your very kind words, catch up soon. Vic xReplyDelete
