I'm now at the 3/4 mark.
This was a bitter sweet week for me. Bitter because I found sewing so difficult. I was like a child refusing to do my homework. I kept seeing darkness everywhere I turned. Yet I had to keep going deeper into the tunnel because that's the only way out. Sweet because I've sold a few of my Christmas stock so that took some pressure off me. I've managed to sell enough to pay for rent at my 9-days VivoCity craft market. Which in turn turned bitter for me because all the money I've made so far won't go to me. Not one cent. You see what I mean? But that's how the biz is. Hopefully I won't be disappointed with my sale at VivoCity.
So, I'm not going to spend this whole post complaining to you. After all I'm a big girl and I went into this biz with my eyes open.
|OUT OF THE DARKNESS|
I made some zippy wristlets. I really dreaded making these because I've made so many in the past and it's like eating too much cake.
Yay. Glad I did it. Now it's over. Don't my wristlets look relieved?
I made 6 mamas wristlets. If these sell really well, I'm never making the regular size again. Hahahaha.
Here are the glorious 16. Go to www.projectsbyjane.com if you want to take a closer look. I mostly used old favourite fabric. Oh, most of my old favourite fabric are running out. You know what that means? I get to buy new favourite fabric next year!
This is all I made this whole week. Quite disappointed. I think I have 1 more week of sewing before I'll stop and take care of the nitty gritties.
Oh, remember my 1,000th project - the quilted bag above? I've sold it. (thank you J) I know a few of you think I should keep it (my girl included). But you know what? Before I made the bag, I did ask myself if I would sell it and I thought about it and decided I would. It's not that I'm not sentimental about reaching the 1,000th project milestone. I am. But I thought wouldn't it be great if I manage to sell it? And I had a buyer! I was so freaking thrilled. So don't cry for me. I will go on to make many more bags. The 1,000th bag was not the end of a journey for me. It's the beginning of a new journey which I have yet to start on.
Oh, please come back on Monday. I have a surprise for you.
