Saturday September 25th 2010

Phew!  First of the twenty 24" doilies finished.  Gonna start again, though because the thread is too fine and the look is too lacey (doesn't pay to be a perfectionist).  Was going to take time out from doilies but the new size 10 thread arrived and now I feel obliged to get going again.  I am going to indulge myself with a couple of hours on my pet projects too, though.  


The Beginning of my Extreme Afghan

I have a scumble winter hat in whites and creams on the go, a blue, circular free-form baby blanket, a hanging basket, an amigurumi cat and an enormous afghan with an extreme hook.  Soooooooo, plenty to choose from.

Been playing around with the website.  Still haven't managed to get the checkout sorted so that customers don't have to register in order to buy something - it drives me crazy so it must madden other people too!  Will try again tomorrow after seeking expert guidance because I managed to crash the whole site for two hours yesterday after fiddling around in code I didn't really understand.

Set up a sale, though, and that should encourage a few more sales.

Next job is to design a competition.  I've got to come up with a good prize but I have a theme (not telling yet, before you ask!).  Can't wait.  It's really quite exciting!
