Tuesday October 5th 2010

I am sooooooooooooooo tired.  I've had a really busy few days and lots of early mornings.  But ....  Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!   finished the prototype doiley ready for posting.  It's the third attempt before I was happy with the outcome but I'm very pleased now.  I'm not too happy about shipping it, though.  It is big (2 feet in diameter) and I want to send it flat.  I've been out scouting card today but couldn't find any big enough and stiff enough (oooerr!).  I've had to attach it to a a piece of card, roll it and put inside a tube.  Not entirely satisfactory but it will do.  Not looking forward to sending 20 of them when the project's finished.

Also borrowed a decent digital camera and took some pictures - so I've put a lot more stuff onto the website and onto Etsy.  I've got a load more to do tomorrow inbetween planning my lessons and teaching.  Phew!  Life is very full.
