Well, I have now worked a full week. Working for money is exhausting. Especially admin work. I am not used to sitting in front of a computer for hours on end. It hurts my eyes and soul. However, I am very grateful to have an opportunity to earn money so that I won’t be poor and will be able to pay bills without eating into my savings. Also, the people I am working with right now are very nice, so that makes things more bearable. Although I have sold a few items recently, I haven’t been prolific enough to think about quitting my day job. This last year may have been a bit of a challenge with regard to the finances due to covid, but I have had a huge opportunity to develop my felting skills. One thing offsets the other somehow. So, now that I am back to work for a while, felting is taking a back seat and I will be only making things on the weekends as well as dealing with everything else. It is good to have a full life and things to look forward to.
This time has also given me an opportunity to really think about what I want to make. I like making small things like mittens and hand warmers, so I will most likely make more of those.
I will definitely be making more hats and scarves/neckwarmers. I may start focusing on making sets with a theme. I haven’t made a tea cosy or cafetière yet, so that is something to look forward to. I have made placemat and coaster sets, but only for family so far. There are so many things to try, but not a lot of time.
I am looking forward to the holidays where I will have some time off and will be able to felt to my heart’s content, walk the dogs and ease my soul. In the meantime, I shall carry on and live for the weekends as I used to do before.
