AN ORDER.... WOW!

ABOVE: last night.. well I didn't exactly do NOTHING... I did start on these two bigger Ducks... cos Kim in Aussy wants two ducks for birthday presents. So I have an ORDER! How cool is that?

So... today I will try to get them finished so I can get them in the mail in time of a certain wee girl's birthday!

Not much else to yabber on about right now... got to get a move on and get the kids ready for school....

ONWARD....

I've just been out and about posting stuff, getting stuff... just sorting STUFF out... and it's a stinking hot day AGAIN... and after yesterday's rain it's like a sauna out there.

I got a letter in the mail today: My TOYOTA HIGHLANDER has to go and have a wee repair done... ON THE COMPANY... *sigh*... something to do with a potential oil leak developing due to a faulty part. WONDERFUL. Don't worry, I still love my car! It's just such a shame TOYOTA have had so many problems lately, not good for the company at all.


ABOVE: Two adorable ducks done and dusted... they just have to fly off to Australia now!

My computer is being an absolute SHIT SHIT SHIT today. It keeps freezing..... or NOT RESPONDING. I've give it NOT RESPONDING soon with a bloody sledge hammer! I AM GETTING REALLY REALLY MAD.

AND while I'm annoyed... friggin well give me a comment now and then if you are reading this friggin blog eh? I go OUT OF MY WAY sometimes to even do an update.... and OUT OF MY WAY to come visit over 200 bloody blogs AS OFTEN AS I CAN.... and some ...SOME of you? Never even bother to return the favor. Pffffffffft. OVER IT NOW.... just so ya know.

End of Day.... forgive my rant. I am just hot and bothered. I got 3 crank calls in quick succession, had a few other things get up my nose too. Just one of those afternoons. No one HAS to leave a comment... I will not track you down and bitch slap ya, I promise! Then again....
nite nite.

  6. O Chris , they are perfect! And an order - how wonderful for you!

    I do have one friend who wanted to start a small home business that she could retire into and it had to do with sewing. So, she started doing some research and picked one item to make . I remember she was so excited when she posted her first item on E-bay.That was about 2004 . Now she has such a thriving business she is attempting to hire someone else to help her sew!

    I asked her if shew as happy and she said she was happy the business was doing good and she had a great reputation because it grew by word of mouth -but the bad part was that it was taking ALL of her spare time up !

    Your work is lovely and every one should be thrilled to get an "Original " gift !

  17. Hi Chris,

    I don't remember ever having commented on your blog, and I apologise. I don't have a blog and it is true I do not reciprocate in a way to match the efforts of those of you willing and honest enough to share with us all. I do try to offer comments to the ones I read from time to time but in your case, I thought you are so popular, it will just create potentially more work for you, not knowing if you reply personally or not (not a deciding factor, because you do enough for me blogging in the first place). Hope this makes sense. Anyway. I will comment more if you find it more helpful than invasive.

    Finally, thank you!!! It really helps me to see the blogs people write, and I love hearing about your sewing, children, etc.

    Hope you are feeling better!

  21. Those ducks are adorable! No wonder you have an actual order for them. I am always amazed at your sewing skills, Chris!

  22. OMG they are so cute! Congrats on getting an order. My computer at work has been slower than molasses on a cold day, the audio is fried, and it doesn't look like anyone here has a moment to remedy the situation. Pass me that sledge hammer when you are done. Hope things cool off for you soon.

  26. Just catching up on blog reading this morning...and I wanted to tell you..."I FEEL YOUR PAIN!"

    I am sick of being fat. I am feeling tired and lazy and uncapable of changing lifelong habits....I am afraid I will die this way.

    (Okay, that pity party is over.)

    AND...I feel your pain about the comment thing. Part of the reason I lost interest in blogging, my people stopped posting comments...especially the people I KNOW personally.

    All the more reason I am just going to QUIT. (If I start another blog...I will let you know privately where it is. I want to be able to complain about all of the turds who I know in real life.)
    LOL

    You are amazing and talented, and God has you here for a purpose...and you will be successful on your journey!! I know that...you have been through so much!

    Praying for you right now!!!
    :)
