I spent a large part of today crazy patching a ring pillow. Why a ring pillow? Who is getting married I hear you say? Well, no-one, but I was looking for some fabric and realised I had quite a few creams and white fancy fabrics. I have said I will put some things in this little Art Gallery in Fremantle and thus I am making quick and easy small things that may sell, when I have a little more time I will be able to be more adventurous. The adventurous bit definitely comes after Christmas, I am in panic mode right now!
Next comes the dilemma, do I embellish this piece as much as I would normally, hand work is time consuming and I am unlikely to be able to price high enough to sell. It really bugs me that when I sell my work I make less than any unskilled labourer, but I would welcome a little extra cash and don't want to clutter my house any more with unsold craft objects. Excuse me while I go out into the garden and scream - it may solve the problem (know that it won't VBG)
