Man, starting a bidness is hard!

First, there's the procrastination factor. As in, yes, sure, I could get another couple hours in on this prototype while The Kid is lost in Legoland, but dinner isn't going to cook itself. And really if I just moved all the furniture in here around *one more time* I might be able to reach the computer and the sewing machine without ever leaving my chair...

Secondly, confidence. I mean, if I spend an hour making dinner I know it will eventually get eaten. Even if it's the next day disguised as "burrito fillings" in someone's lunch. If I keep working on these pieces I'm trying to sell, I could just be making ridiculous gifts that will end up in the back of someone's closet. Gifts because, you know, if I can't sell them my friends and relatives are going to end up with a crapload of presents. (This would be a good time to get your name in on the list for eventual recipients. Go ahead, use the comments.)

Mostly, it's switching back and forth between mom/wife/creative-Jewish-fabric-artist-working-from-a-small-room-upstairs that's making me crazy. What nobody tells you about working from home is that it's hard to enforce your work/home boundaries. Especially with the cats.

In any case, hopefully pics of some of my new pieces will be up here soon. With order forms, and space for encouraging noises.

What does it mean to be a fabric artist? Whatever it is, I'll buy it. This is really exciting!

Just don't go the way of PTrunk and have a nervous breakdown.

Meh. Updates? My neck is sore from bending over the sewing machine and everything is taking longer than planned, but I'm having a lot of fun. Should have some photos up in the next day or so.
