I seem to keep falling behind on my mental list of things I want to have made before Mysticon. Which is in 26 days. Yeah.
I did finish the embroidered tentacle silk scarf. And promptly sold it. Which is awesome!
I have at least one other hand embroidered silk scarf in the works. I'm hoping to have at least it finished by Mysticon and the third started so I can actually work on it there.
Have several steampunk/clockwork jewelry pieces done, but want to get several more beaded pieces finished. Need to finish getting price tags on everything and sewing up the last 3.5 themed gaming bags.
The shells are all woven, just need to sew the liners. So that's what I've been working on the past couple days. I get those done, I can spend the rest of the week beading and next week beading and putting price tags on everything. I figure that'll give me a week to test out various setups and see which display version works best for my stuff.
Two weeks ago, we actually got the ball rolling on getting serious about getting a house this year. We sat down with a loan agent to figure out how much, based on what we were willing to pay per month, of a mortgage we would be able to get. It was less than we were hoping for but more than we expected if that makes sense.
So now we work on the credit card debt, saving money, keeping an eye out for potential houses- there are several out there in the price range we're looking at the would work nicely, one moreso than the others as it has an inlaw suite, but is also at the extreme range, timewise, of our potential search area- and when we're ready to house hunt, go prequalify again and try to find a house by the end of the year.
Meanwhile we watch our spending and save as much as we can. Fun times!
Back to work I go...
