Sorry for the silence lately. I have been overloaded with embroidery commissions, and it’s getting to be time to get cracking on them.
There was *secret project one,* which is still in progress and due in September. It’ll be a relatively quick one to finish, but it’s complicated. So I have to be careful.
Then, *secret project two* fell into my lap, a larger piece that is also due in September. But I can do it. No biggie.
Next up came another *secret project* that, thankfully, took only a day. So that one’s done.
Then….not-so-secret project, uh, four I think the count is now. A commission. A *paid* commission. Due when, you ask? You guessed it: September.
Am I crazy? Well yes, but that’s beside the point. I have this handled. I’ve got early mornings for the quick one. Lunchtime for project number two. Evenings and weekends for four. And I’ve got a weekend to myself during that time, plus a full week off from work. So I’m golden.
I’m incredibly proud of how far I’ve come in the year and a half I’ve been embroidering. I’ve gone from zero to semi-decent to sought-after in that time, and I hope I can continue to live up to the reputation I’ve developed… and beyond.
Gotta remember to keep learning. Keep improving. Keep stitching.
