Almost A Sale..

The thought of working on a crochet project and getting paid for it, got me Smiling. I was happy for days.  I remember years ago, just after my son was born, I started crocheting and it was pure luck that the project actually fit a king size bed. I do remember it took me over four months to make.

 I wanted this project to come out right, because this time it won’t be a gift. I did my research. I got a rough idea about the amount of yarn that will be needed. I put that question out on Google and I looked on more than ten sites and the answer was always different.

The number count was between 12 and 14 skeins of yarn. Then again I also know, it depends on the yarn, and I wish she hadn’t looked at the ‘cake’ yarn, because it is thicker than most and will need more to complete the size.

She offered $200.00 and that sounded good, until I got to adding what it would cost to get the yarn. She even suggested I start on it now, but that was a big “NO.” (I WILL NEVER PUT MY MONEY INTO A REQUESTED PROJECT EVER AGAIN. I learned the hard way, people will take everything from you if you allow it.)

The look on my face must have said what I was thinking and before I could say anything, she said she would give me half of the money up front and the other half when it’s done. COOL!!

I agreed. I know Micheals is always having a sale and since it’s a Christmas gift I have enough time. I saw her every day when I got home from work, (and yes she has my phone number) but for some reason I am no longer seeing her.

I will not call her to ask if she still wants me to make her that blanket, because part of me no longer wants to do it. We may have agreed on a $200.00 blanket, but if it’s going to cost me more then $60.00 on the yarn I don’t think so. (I know its going to take me at least two months to make) I am thinking she was just talking to be nice. I might be wrong and this is one of those times I am hoping I am.

This person may not buy a crochet project from me, but one day I will open an online store. My goal is to have a place where anyone can buy one or two of my crochet items as well as request something as well. 

I am hearing an unasked question. What is a requested item? I have seen items in catalogs as well as online and I thought, “that is a cool dress, too bad they don’t have any colors I liked,” and that is how I want to add that to my page.

A Person : You know that isn’t how things are done.

Me         : If you are always playing “follow the leader.” How are you going to shine?

The person whom I was talking to, had no response, and walked away from me with a confused look on their face.
