Sold more yarn!

July 22nd, 2015 at 05:47 pm

A woman stopped by after work tonight with her husband (drove 40 minutes to get here in rush hour traffic) and bought $263 worth of yarn!

I'm gratified that people are buying it. I seem to have a very high ratio of # of people told I have yarn for sale and # of people who buy something. But finding weavers and knitters is the more challenging part of this equation.

I've been in touch with a number of weavers' and knitters' guilds.

Most of the money will go into my mother's checking account, but I know she also needs some spending money, so I'll give her a small amount, like $20. She's been on a kick lately of wanting to buy an iron (NO) or a small fridge (NO) so I don't want to give her enough to do that.

I will go over there this weekend with an iron and iron all the clothes in her closet in one shot so she stops asking about it. I also really want to see a lifestyle suite.

Sorry, I know I talk about all this stuff incessantly. I've been on this site for years now; years ago I would do the same when I thought of nothing else but dating and finding Mr. Right; later, when I was laid off, all I ever talked about was finding a job and doing freelance work and finding ways to save money.

Here are some pix of the yarns I'm selling, which, like mom's art, are so nice to look at.













Tomorrow I work at home again. Yippee.

    Congrats on the yarn sales! You know most of us don't mind reading what you have to say. It's your blog and you can write what you want. Smile

    Thanks for sharing more art. You have mentioned your mom's work many times...and it is a joy to see it. My daughter is an artist, so I'm always interested in anyone's work. I like the last painting with the trees especially. A scene I often think about that relaxes me. Can your mother have some of her art with her? Can she still create in the place she lives?

    I think we all have things that we write most often about. Those things are what are most important to us at the moment - the things which inspire us to write. Those who are interested will read, and those who aren't, won't. In the end all that matters it that you write about what is important to you. At least that's my view. Smile

    Wow, your mother is so, so, so talented! Just beautiful work to look at.

    How much time did I spend worrying about my husband's job? Like months, stretching into years - I think this is a nice place to vent and sort things out and be supported.

    It's ok to talk about certain things incessantly, because let's face it, everyone has something they think about incessantly. And talking about, thinking about it, is the best way to get through it and move forward.

    By the way, I love the bottom painting, it's gorgeous!

    Your blog was always one of my favorites.

    I am looking for some art for my home. I live the 4h picture (second art pic). Can you post others or email me through here? I'd love to see others especially anything in blues and greys. Or anything like the waterfall pic? I mauy not be able to afford them but I'd sure like to try and help with a sale if I could!
