Not Quite

      No Comments on Not Quite

One of the reasons I charge the prices I do is that it can take me a long time to come up with, and execute suitable designs. While this one came out super pretty, it also came out a bit too short. Which means reevaluating what I did, and finding a way to add a few more beads, but not… Read more »

Hooked

If everything is as I think it’s going to be tomorrow, I am going to be able to get started on a custom order for a friend. She wants two pairs of earrings in every colour of the dice beads that should be coming in, and well, can do! I have to keep reminding myself that the prices I charge… Read more »

Dangly

The French hooks for earrings came in today, yay! I immediately crammed a pair of blanks into my ears to see how it went. And then I eventually took them out and made earrings for myself, and the first stock of such for the store. I think that doing the same with the various colours of my other danglies will… Read more »

All Fangy and Unimpressed

I’ve had to make the call to stay in tonight, grr. I’m feeling better than I did when I got up this morning… but that’s really not saying much. Z said firmly and truthfully that hey, if I DID go out, it would wear me out and leave me a lot worse off. He’s right, but it doesn’t change that… Read more »

So Not Impressed

      No Comments on So Not Impressed

So. I went up to bed last night, performed my normal ablutions, and laid down… only to find out that APPARENTLY, I had a head cold just waiting for me to lay down and discover I couldn’t breathe. I managed to get to sleep somehow in spite of having to mouth breathe, and woke up completely crusted up and over…. Read more »

16

      No Comments on 16

As I had finished the super duper rainbow cake of wool, I decided to stop and take stock of how many squares I’d made so far. If I’ve counted correctly, I have 16. The two full cakes I did each made six, while the remnants of the orange after I made a cat hat for Seanan McGuire was four.  Smalls… Read more »

Britain, Innit

      No Comments on Britain, Innit

It’s raining. It was raining yesterday, and it’s supposed to rain tomorrow. What can you really expect — it’s spring in the UK, ha ha. It’s gonna get a bit colder over the next couple of days, so hopefully I won’t have to go out much into it. I wouldn’t’ve today, except my bestie put in an order for stitch… Read more »

Uh, Stuff

      No Comments on Uh, Stuff

So like, all I wanted today was a huge pile of work to keep me distracted… so of course, there wasn’t. As you might’ve guessed based on last night’s post, my grandfather passed last night. I’m not dwelling on it or anything, but I -am- sad, and I -did- want something to keep my brain busy. The one upshot of… Read more »

I Earned This Coffee

      No Comments on I Earned This Coffee

Today, I celebrate my first sale, woo! Granted, it was a custom request that predated me setting up the store, but it also is kind of the thing that nudged me into doing it. Tippy wanted to pay me what my efforts were worth, and I guess I needed that bit of validation to take a big step and *try*… Read more »

More Pretty Things

      No Comments on More Pretty Things

Today has been an amusing day. I’d commented to E last night that out of the ‘advice’ giving game these days. So of course, I end up having several mutually cathartic conversations with friends over the course of the day, ha ha. Which is great! I love catching up with friends, and in one case, I honestly cannot remember how… Read more »
