Firstly, late last night there was a semi-crisis with Murphy on FB. Traci & I were trading PMs about the situation – both of us extremely worried. To be honest, I really don’t know where I’d be right now without Murphy! I KNOW she’s frustrated & under a lot of pressure….and I realized that I haven’t been a very good friend of late. I’ve been wallowing in my own stresses, depression, lack of motivation, despair – you name it! Often, I couldn’t even be bothered having a shower or going out anywhere – unless errands needed to be taken care of. I’m determined to rectify this error.
On a different note, I’ve been scanning Etsy some more, as well as websites for patchwork patterns, material, batting, etc……Pretty much decided to try my hand at smaller items (placemats, table toppers, baby quilts, aprons) and try to determine the cost involved. I’m kind of following a handful of shops on Etsy to get an idea of what they’re selling & for how much, popularity, etc. It also gives me a good idea of how to set up my own “shop”. There’s quite a few articles on tips for Etsy sellers, so that’s a plus.
Today is “errand day” since Nate is off. Bank to put money in for bills, get a few food items at Walmart, grab some tobacco and tubes, then home to do the trash…and (hopefully) locate my binder with quilt patterns.
