And guess what………I’m not doing it! And I feel a million bucks for having made the decision! You see, I don’t want to…….I mean I really don’t want to. I just felt I had to, you know, try and get some Australian market for Pillow Parlance. But I’ve been so dreading it………..more than you can imagine. As I’ve said, I find selling my own personal craft very confronting. There’s just so much of me in my pillows that the thought of the general public looking them up and down and deciding they don’t want them is too much for my fragile ego to bear. If you think I am thin skinned, hypersensitive, precious and a bit ‘touched’………you are absolutely right!
So now I can rest a bit. I’ve spent the last week hunched over the machine burning the candle at both ends, making stock for the markets. It hasn’t been fun……even with my new overlocker.
But today I’m back on to more inspiring projects. I started with bows to go on hair clips and combs. I made some for my daughters and one for myself and then a couple to put into birthday presents. Then I thought of adding them to Etsy orders, as a small surprise gift. The bows are a really fun project because they look lovely and only take a couple of minutes to make.
My most rewarding project this weekend was this cushion I made from a quilt. I just love the cushion ………and I love the notion of refashioning. It is just so sensible. This was my most rewarding project but this (below) is my favourite………
I think the colours in this fabric are beautiful. And it’s a lovely linen…sewed like a dream.
Incidentally……..you may remember the cushions I made for my daughter……..the ones that elicited a very luke warm response. Well she came clean tonight……..she hates them!!!!!!! Do you believe it? Lucky I have Pillow Parlance. I think I will sell them as a story. She’s decided she wants a silver black and charcoal scheme and I have to admit, much more interesting!
And one more thing…………..
