Friday, April 1, 2011 APRIL FOOLS DAY
I had a pleasant surprise today! I got a phone call from my friend Dana to do a commission guitar strap for her nephew's birthday. Now I have to admit he is only going to be 7 years old...but a commission is a commission.
She told me his name and that he likes flames...so I will probably do double weave. As a matter of fact my favorite yarn, #3 mercerized cotton crochet thread in the appropriate colors has already been ordered and will be sent via USPS. I am going to use orange, yellow and red.
He already has a 'cheap' strap so we have the measurements at hand and Aunt Dana said she will design the hardware/fasteners herself. I have to have it done by May 10th in time for a talent show. Woohooooo!!!
Doing what I am passionate about and getting paid. What more can a body ask?
