why do I feel as if I’m forever catching up on my blogging? I vowed a few weeks ago that I would begin blogging every other day and yet here I am writing yet another catch up post.
Craft2.0 in Christchurch was fabulous. I so love my old home town and the fact that it was held in one of my very favourite Christchurch landmarks made it extra special.
The show was busy all day. I thought that I’d made way too much product for the show, but was pleasantly surprised to almost sell out. Now I have to get my skates on and work hard for my upcoming shows and to get some stuff on my Felt shop.
I had a nice couple days holiday before and after the show which was good because I came back to a very full on week at work. That and the grim days of winter have seen my crafting mojo disappear a little. Lets hope it’s back for the weekend.
Piece by piece the furniture is slowly being moved back into the house. Still no bathroom though! On Friday I got my bookcase back and I started to unpack my books. I say started because it’s a slow process! You see, one can’t simply put the book on the shelf…each book carries a memory or two and some of them need to be put on a TBR pile and others need to be read right then, that very instant. That I unpacked 5 boxes is actually quite an achievement! Consequently the bears aren’t quite finished. Tonight I’ll be sewing on earsies and toesies, so weather permitting photographs tomorrow.
If I push myself tonight, I should hopefully have 4 new bears for the website tomorrow. I have a very fuzzy post migraine head today. Just had a foul headache that lasted 48 hours, centred above my left eye so not conducive with bearmaking at all. I think it’s the after effects of the painkillers that leave me fuzzy headed and queasy for another 48 hours after the headache has gone and my vision is a little shot. All in all, not a happy camper!
It doesn’t help that I’ve been without a bathroom for a week. Hopefully the new shower will be installed tomorrow. Fingers crossed! They think it will take another week after that to finish the rest of the bathroom and painting. I have a horrible feeling that the landlord will raise the rent as soon as it’s all finished. All the more reason to find a new job and home.
