I finished the custom order and the lady liked it!
It was a nice surprise to hear from her that she wanted it.
The day I finished it I told P that I didn’t think I was up for any more custom orders as it was just too hard for me to get to grips with what someone really wants and then I end up wanting to under charge them because I’m unsure of myself and feel bad for them that they’ll be getting something that they don’t really want.
Then yesterday, when I was upstairs cleaning out my ‘clean’ studio, the one where I make my quilts etc., I got an e-mail from another person wanting a custom order.
I didn’t say no.
And so it starts over…
Actually I’m looking forward to it.
(Remind me of that when I start to moan again)
In the short time it took me to give up taking custom orders and then accept another one I tackled my thirty year stash of craft books .
To be honest I didn’t think I would be up for it and P definitely had doubts.
In fact he laughed at me which was not funny and not very encouraging.
And I haven’t finished yet.
They haven’t actually made it out of the house yet, but I’m working on it.
Of course the upstairs A/C decided to pack up half way through my sorting, but I soldiered on and now I’m feeling quite pleased with myself.
They’re all going to the ministry up the road although I think that they may have to open a new room to accommodate them.
In other news,
the boy’s cat, Nutmeg,
Nope. Don’t talk to me about it.
I’m not really that put out by the sofa covers needing to be washed five hundred and sixty-three times daily.
Nope, not at all.
