media Monday...


in which our plucky heroine focuses on getting tasks completed...

I have been working on a rush sewing commission, making a linen table drape for a new client, to cover a folding banquet table for some presentation they are doing on Wednesday. As sometimes happens, it took eversomuch longer than I imagined, (since it was something that seemed simple and straightforward). Made closer to minimum wage than my preferred hourly, but at least it is done well ahead of the desired pick up time. I should remember that pretty much any "decor" type of sewing takes a lot longer than I think it will, just because of the length of the pieces.

I've also been working on putting together bids for the Barony of Wastekeep new coronet project... not much to show yet, until submissions close, but there has been a lot of drawing happening here at Acorn Cottage. I'm also still considering making a calendar for 2017, possibly a new iteration of AlphaSketch, with the animals and plants from the second half of the alphabet. Perhaps a calendar would be a way of focusing on hope for a better year to come.
