Good morning WOYWW-ers (what's on your work bench Wednesday-ers), this is the sight that greeted me this morning. Not great.
I didn't bother putting the ironing board away at 10.00 last night, because I knew that once I had despatched the children this morning I would be straight back to sewing (papercrafters: sewing involves ironing) (If you look in the background you can see I was very good and hung up the iron).
The book on the chair is pressing a daffodil greeting card. I was one card short to despatch to Aberystwyth for Funki Blue, so their parcel can go today.
But why on the chair? Well today I will let you look over the back of the sewing machines. (Cue psycho music)
Actually, you lose the sense of depth from this angle, so you will never know whether the sewing machine is taller or the pile of stuff behind!
My daffodil greeting cards were part of Fairetail, Machynlleth, window's display for St David's Day, and yesterday my doorstops and books made it into Grug Studio, Dolgellau's window display. I only dropped off my samples to Grug Studio in the morning, so this week I have to make like mad to replenish my stock.
So why is the end nigh? Well, I have always promised myself that when my business turns a reliable profit regularly, I'll treat myself to a decent storage system, but I think I have to take my current order rate as a sign that the business is going to become reliable. Because I can't continue in this chaos.
