Hello there gals...I know, I know, 2 posts in 2 days ? What is going on here ? Well it's a wonder what a little sleep can help. Anyway, I am keeping this short but I wanted to let you all know that I am adding these cute "Penny Packs" to my line of wool for sale (see button on the right that says WOOL FOR SALE). I have sooooo much "leftover" wool that I cant really use sine I am not great at sewing (yet) and doubt I will ever master the blanket stitch well enough to make penny rugs so I decided rather than throwing it away (I hear the yelling now), I should get organized and start selling it. It's great too because I can work on this in bed, which as many of you know, I am forced to spend way too much time !!! I am working on getting larger sizes and different bundles but I am starting with just a few and will see how it goes. I plan on doing some "themed" packs like Harvest Time, Christmas Morning, Cloudy Days etc as well as penny packs that have various shades of one color...the ones I have for sale now are just miscellaneous but all hand dyed by me.
Anyway...here are a few of the pics...
Please let me know what you think and especially you Penny Rug Makers and Applique gals...I need/want your advice !!! Since the hubs is still out of work and the snafu with his unemployment we wont be getting any $$$ for 4-6 weeks, although, thankfully the IRS has FINALLY told us that the reason we haven't gotten our tax return was a small error that TaxAct dot com didn't catch and that we "should" receive our return soon ....Not sure what that means since its already been 3 months and we have gone online, called them, called our state senator's office etc...all anyone would say was that it was being processed and then yesterday we get a letter dated July 15 (um yesterday was July 11th).
Ok, ok, I just need to chill out...I know God's got it all worked out and this is just another lesson in patience and reliance on Him ! That being said, I feel I do need to try to DO something to make some extra bucks cuz we have cut everywhere we possibly can at this point. I mean I could literally do a whole other blog on couponing and living frugally !
Well, that's it for today, so please give me your opinions and advice...I have done a bit of research on how much to charge etc, but the prices online are all over the map.
Grace to you,
