I know that probably by the time you all read this, it might not be morning. But it's 4:30 a.m. for me right now! It's EARLY for a Wug in Wuglyees land!...*Yawn*...I'm getting an early start today because I have guests suppose to be coming over and I didn't want to miss posting on my blog. See how much I've gotten used to this?! :-))
Anyway....first let me give you the update about my dad. It's good news!! The surgery went well. He was only in the hospital for one day. He's home...walking with a walker right now...but home. The doctor says he'll be walking like he was before in 'no time'...The way he was walking before wasn't all that great either...^_^...but hey! he thought that was great news! Who am I to argue?! ^_^
On the Wuglyees front, I got a request for a custom order yesterday that had me wondering "why didn't I think of that?" A gentleman wondered if I could make some crocheted lapel pins. Lapel pins! For a man's suit!....Yeah! I can do that!!
So I got out my TINY crochet needle, and some nice crochet thread, and...
I even put one of my crocheted backs on it...which was no small feat with that tiny needle!!
And with one of my vintage buttons on it, I think it looks pretty cool! He thought so too when I sent him the pictures of it. He inquired about me making a set of them for him!! I sent him my price. Let's see if that scares him off, or if he's still interested. LOL It's so tough knowing what to charge for your work, but I kinda have a formula now. I figure out how much the materials would be, including my rare vintage buttons, and then I go from there...difficulty, time to make, etc...
Even after all that figuring, I still think my prices could be a bit higher. But, for now, it's not a major issue. If I get famous for my crochet designs and talent......Okay, so I'm dreaming . ^_^ Allow me room for a little delusion. It's still VERY early here!!
Thanks to all of you 'Nuts' out there for the nice, and funny, comments you shared with me yesterday. It's good to know that me and my family are not alone!! :-)
Have a GOOD weekend!!!
Have a good weekend!
Spend some time with your kids,
do the errands you been meaning to do,
do a little grocery shopping,
maybe make a chicken stew.
Organize your messy space,
clean the closets, throw things out,
watch a little mindless T.V.,
and replace the bathroom grout.
Take a walk around the park,
play some board games with your friends,
maybe even cut your hair
(but just a little bit, off the ends).
Take a trip to Grandma's house,
do some gardening in the yard,
give new projects a little finish,
but nothing that might be too hard.
It's the weekend, after all;
It's your week's tail, at a wag;
No need for scurry, hurry, rushing.
No! You want this time to lag!
