I finished it! The Granddaughter’s Needle Box and Thimble Box are finished. I’m spending some time gathering needles and thimbles from all over this house to put in here. Here’s hoping there’s enough room!
Other activities this week?
The Barn is well underway. The more I hook around the fence, the more I like it. It shows the scale of The Barn, which is really a stable turned picnic shelter. :)
I’ve been busy transferring my blog posts for the last 3 1/2 years to Open Office to edit formatting and print. I’m keeping a hard copy in binders.
I’ve also been applying to sales and exhibits. I’ve been accepted at one sale – the Cathedral Village Arts Festival Street Fair – and have yet to hear from another.
I’ve also been negotiating with the shops that sell my work. Prices are $60 for my 6″ square wall hangings and $25 for Christmas ornaments. Other, larger works, are priced at $150/sq. ft. which is mid-range for this type of work.
I’ve been arranging classes as well. If anyone is interested in classes in February, I hold them on Saturdays from 1:30 – 3:30 PM. They are $50 for a teaching fee, and $75 for materials, if you need a hoop and hook, backing and fibre. The fee will be adjusted if you bring your own supplies.
I have two classes I teach currently: a Beginner Class, and a Curves Class. The Beginner Class is a simple 6″ square star that familiarizes the student with technique, tools, and fibre types. The Curves Class teaches circles, backgrounds, and lettering using a floral design. Both are one day classes.
Today will be busy with more hooking on The Barn, and creating and editing more files for my blog. I need to buy more paper for the printer Saturday. :)
