Financial issues

I wanted to list my crochet and knitting patterns on the LoveCrafting web sites. When I began the process, I discovered it was mandatory to have a PayPal account. This is abhorrent. I'm disgusted to find out that such a dishonest financial institution is my only option. As a result, I will not be listing my patterns with them. when they are able to offer other options, I will reconsider. In the mean time, my crochet patterns continue to be available on Etsy. I will consider Revelry, but I fear they too, use PayPal only.

Yule greetings


The truck is running! It still has some work that needs to be done, but seats are in and it runs.
I’m working on patterns again and I’ll be listing all the knit and crochet patterns on Love crochet/knitting at the first of the year.

We had a lovely solstice dinner, gaming and gift exchange and we wish all of you a festive holiday season!

Holiday prep

I’m almost finished with my projects! Catherine and I will start the decorating this week. Moths got at my little feather tree, so I need to rebuild it and we can’t seem to find the tree stand for the big tree. This is where having owned a store front comes in handy. We have back up trees 🌲 😃

Slow mo

We’re working at one quarter speed today. Probably have been all week. 😔 Right now I’m sitting here half dressed and trying to figure out what to do next. We got some unexpected trick or treaters last night and their fragrance cloud invaded the living room which sent me scurrying while the kids tried to clear the air. I wasn’t good for much that required thinking after that.

I’ve been contemplating stop motion filming for a while now. Wondering if I can pull it off. It would be great for marketing more patterns. Still just gathering info on it.

3 A.M.

I’m up, yet again, struggling to breathe.

I’m still missing Princess. We had already started looking for a new puppy before she became so ill, but cash is an issue. Even the shelters want $300 for their dogs with issues. And I don’t like the individuals selling on Craig’s list, it’s always suspect and you need to rush to be the first or they’ll be gone.

Yule projects are coming along, and I’m back working on the seats for the truck. The wiring is almost done and then there’s? Mechanical or windows or something.

I’m struggling to keep hope alive over here. I hate knowing that where I live is keeping me really sick but the longer I’m here the harder it is to move out. I’m bad enough now that we can’t put the house on the market because I can’t handle people walking through with their synthetic fragrance. I don’t have enough brain function to make patterns right now, so I can’t increase the likelihood of more cash flow. Really sucks.
