Good morning, dear readers!
It is rather chilly in the Piney Woods this morning. I must say that Autumn is my favorite season. It has inspired me to make some long needed adjustments and tweaks to how my work is presented and made available for purchase. As mentioned on the blog previously, I prefer to do OOAK pieces. My focus is currently on that aspect of my work along with deciding whether or not to stick with my current website host, and what is the best vehicle for selling my work online. There are several options up for consideration at the moment and I am uncertain which direction is the right one for my artwork and creative temperament. I will say that the wholesale offers I've received are absolutely ridiculous. There is no way I will wholesale my OOAK pieces! And I will not allow anyone to "convert" my original designs into patterns for embroidery sewing machines. While I have nothing against those who use such machines, my work is totally handmade and I take GREAT offense to it being "converted" to a digital pattern for a machine to make.
Aside from these tatting issues, we've been busy enrolling our daughter in the next semester of online college classes. Let me tell you, it is just as involved as registering for regular college courses! At least we've got that done and are awaiting her class schedule.
Well, Rosie Fey is ready for our morning run. After our run, I plan to spend the morning tatting away in the tatting shanty with a rich, steamy mug of gourmet hot cocoa. I will post images of new OOAK pieces soon. My favorite places for taking images are soaking wet from a recent rain and I do not dare put any of this work on it. Maybe it will dry out enough this afternoon or at the latest, this weekend. May you have a wonderful week full of tatting adventures. Until the next time~
