Well, by the picture, you can see what I have been working on today. Scarecrows, this is from my Hank pattern that is featured in the newest Country Sampler issue. I have 10 bodies, three are now completely done and ready to be mailed tomorrow. I know I shouldn't advertise finished items this close to show time, but I did and now I am making a ton of scarecrows for orders. Orders have really picked up with this issue of the magazine, so hoping that is a good sign for the upcoming shows and such.
Right now, we are trying to find a trailer, it would be cheaper to buy one than to continue to rent a u-haul every year. That gets expensive and we could have one paid for with the rental prices in a just a couple of years. My husband is a Craig's list fan, so has been avidly looking for one on there. He recently bought a troy built chipper and loves to go outside and cut down the shrubs and chip them up.
Well, here is an update on my dad, he is still hanging in there. Grumpy and miserable a lot of the time, missing my mom and so tired of not feeling good. It is like they changed places. Before she died and she did was lay in the bed, now all he does is sit in his chair, and just like her, watches TV all the time. Says he doesn't feel like doing anything, has to have his oxygen hooked up alot of the time. But he is looking forward to his Doctor's appointment tomorrow. A friend is taking him down there, he wants to go out and eat afterwards and has his heart set on looking for a pool table at Sears. I don't know if he will ever use it, but he has always wanted one. So I guess, why not, it is only money. I would rather he get some enjoyment out of life, instead of brooding all the time. He did finally hire a lady to come to his house twice a week and house clean. She does a great job. He has always been messy, but now is much worse. Plus it gives him someone else to talk to, she has rearranged his living room and straightend alot of things up.
Tomorrow, hope to be doing some soap and making more beeswax items. Time is drawing close for the first show. Not enough hours in the day.
