Sunday I hauled the rest of the Big Stuff over to the studio and now it’s all set up to Get Shit Done. Looking at the back room, I wonder where all this stuff used to be. I also wonder WTF I’ll do with the stuff that’s left. I want to get a bed back there so I can quit sleeping on the fold-out couch* and get some paint on the walls. I have some ideas that I’ll share as they get closer to realization. Just let me say that having all the Crafty Stuff elsewhere is good for my mood.
The first project to be completed is a set of skirts for the table at the craft show this weekend. I haven’t talked about that? Huh. Awana and I are going to have a table Black Friday and Saturday at the Lincoln City Cultural Center’s “Not Quite 11th-hour Santa Holiday Fair” where we will be selling our wares in the hope of de-stashing some of the great stuff we have no room for. We’ll have washed wool and carded batts for spinning, stitch markers, hand knit hats, hand spun/hand knit shawls, handmade soaps, and knitting patterns. I finally found my sewing mojo again, spent three hours hard at it today and whipped up some catnip mice and wool project bags to take. Come on out and see us if you’re in town!
Oh, and Happy Turkey Day if you celebrate 🙂 Also, I finished my 50K words for NaNoWriMo – see the badge to the right => Is anyone else annoyed that people who reach 50K words are called “winners?” I don’t remember that being the case when I did it back in 2005. Also, the badge from 2005 was way better, too. Someone needs to be hired to produce some higher quality graphics. Anyway. 50K written, maybe 50K more to go. I hope to finish in December. Editing will commence in the New Year. Anyone interested in reading and giving me honest feedback just comment or drop me a note. It will take a lot of massaging to make it not shitty 🙂
* It’s no longer the adventure it once was. I woke up Sunday morning with all the teeth on the left side of my mouth hurting. I mean, really hurting. Like I need to get to the dentist ASAP hurting. I need some work, so my thought was that finally everything is going to hell and the dentist will be able to buy a new car just from the cost of my new mouth. Monday I woke up with the upper teeth on the left hurting. Biting down, I can feel what happened – I think I’m grinding my teeth in my sleep. Probably because I’m cold. Another blanket on the bed and the heat turned up a few degrees should take care of it. I hope so – my dentist’s office is closed until December 2…
