I got a day without the kids on Saturday when I went to the San Juan County Fair to participate in the Sheep to Shawl demonostration. I had a ton of fun and think I may have
One of the most exciting parts of the day was when I got back I discovered that I had TWO sales on my Etsy shop! One Spinable Smoothie and one Custom Bear.
On Sunday we got to go to my grandparents house where Granddad made doughnuts! I haven't had a hot Dick Doty doughnut in ages and it was a wonderful treat (I only ate two). We headed home to give the kids naps and get some cooking in and by the time they woke up it was time to go back to Grandma's for dinner. Dinner was pretty good and I got to have another doughnut too!
Monday we caught the red-eye and went to see my brother's new house that he is renting with his fiancee and have breakfast. Making multiple stops along the way we eventually made it home and had time to unload the car before we ran out and picked up dinner. Mom, Abby and I dropped Jake and Brian off at the tennis courts on our way, stopped a Walmart for a couple of things and Jo-ann so I could get the fabric for the custom bear. Then we got dinner, headed home and met the boys. After dinner it was bath and bed for pretty much everyone.
Yesterday I spent the day trying to tie up some loose ends with my Etsy stuff - basically I finally sat down and cruched the numbers to find out if I was giving away my time and materials or if I was actually making anything. While I am not making much of anything at all, I am covering my costs with a little left over. Brian was sure I was upsidedown and is happy to know that I am not even if the pay for my time is quite actually just enough to buy peanuts with.
I got nothing as far as housework done (it looks like a bomb went off in here), but I did get the bear all cut out and ready to sew. I hope to have most of the sewing done today, along with the dishes and laundry (damned laundry just won't go away). If I can get that far I hope to start measuring warp for a new project on the big loom. The last one I was so utterly unhappy with that I have finally cut it off of the loom. I think I am going try to do a 4 harness pattern this time.
Well, off to start those dishes.
