A lovely little challenge
I have been in regular contact with a lovely customer about making a quilt/bedspread. That in itself is an exciting project as the colour scheme is one of my favourite, blues, greens, turquoise and some little splashes of other colours.
Very very exciting indeed!
But that's not the challenge I am talking about for a challenge, in my mind, has to have a tight deadline to get my little heart fluttering.
Last Wednesday evening the lovely customer, Rachel, asked me if I could make two makeup brush rolls, one for her and one for her sister... only she needed them for Sunday.
I was on it like a shot! I finished the first one late that evening, the second the following morning, by lunch time they were in the post. Loved it, it reminded me of one side of my previous job I really enjoyed, being creative under pressure. That is after all, how I got all my coursework done throughout my education ;)
Now that they have been happily received I can show you the result...
I decided to add them as made-to-order items in my little shop.
