Sewing bug.

I have been a little busy lately, consumed by my drive to get my stuff out there for sale. Head down, bums up at the sewing machine desperatley getting some dolls sewn up as a product range show piece. I have been toying with the idea of going to a sunday market once a month and trying my luck. I have even approached a couple of shops about selling my stuff. It seems that it may be promising, at the same time I'm kind of not sure. It's a big deal putting yourself out there and letting the public view your handywork.

I dont intend to make bucketloads, I dont intend to even make a living from it but it would be nice to earn a few bucks on the side and enjoy earning it. Its much like my writing, I would love that to be my main career, even more so now when I could work from home and still be there for my kids. I dont agree with childcare that much, nothing personal to those who do use it, but my son is just not that into it. He is a big boy for his age but he is not at all ready for that sort of seperation yet, and admitedly it does scare me to leave him all day to be brought up by people who I dont know personally.

Life is busy at the moment...the usual things are taking up time and the angst to work on the house is making me feel sick. It would be nice to get it done up a bit and then get an evaluation done to see if th eprice has gone up. Ideally this community suits us but at the same time if we moved out further we could offer our kids a better life. Most things would be easier living in a thriving country town but the easiest thing of all would be having a smaller mortgage and lots of work to help save up for the rainy days.

Must rush off now and find more vintage fabric to use for my creations. I am in love with vintage pinnies at the moment and plan to start a match my vintage kitchen accessories.
