New eenie set !, originally uploaded by annieoakleaves.

I finally have one set in the shop! The person I thought was doing my pdfs wasnt able to do it so its taken a little longer than we thought but we are on a roll now. I have 8 more sets that are all ready to be made into pdfs and then they will go in the shop too. The next ones are going to be HALLOWEENIE EENIES,CIRCUS EENIES and then another haloween set that I havent named yet.I figure if I get those up now then there will be time to get some things made for halloween.Ive decided to do what Ive noticed alot of prim doll pattern makers do and let people sell items made with my patterns within reason and a shout out. Im pretty excited.I hope people like them and like them enough to start a flickr group and actually have pictures in it. Thats always my big fear ,starting a flickr group and then having no one want to put pictures in. lol ok Im off to stare at my listing some more and then make supper.!

Sticking my head out of the hole.... :)

With all of the family stuff,order stuff,swap stuff and pattern stuff it seems like there maybe a light at the end of the tunnel.I have a huge batch of stuff to send out tomarrow and I sent out a huge batch yesterday.Unfortunately Iam not organized enough to take pictures of the packages before the head to the post office like some people are. Iam always amazed at those pictures.I see lots of things I would like to take pictures of but never feel like I have the time to stop and do it.I think the running theme thru out my blog haas been trying to keep up. I decided that after I get this stuff caught up and the patterns in the shop Iam going to take some time and sew for my house and spend alot of time in front of the fan reading.I have so many embroidery patterns backed up to get ready for the shop that Iam almost afraid to sit down with pencil and paper because they just keep coming. someday i will hope for that to happen but not now. Iam sure the never enough time is common among crafters,bloggers,flickr 'ers but I've realized that I spend alot of time feeling bad for not getting things done and out and I hate that feeling of letting people down. I will be doing something and look up and the post office is closed. holy heck it feels like I just had breakfast.i have decided after this last batch of mushrooms that I absolutely cannot make another one.I have too many new things I want to try.But I do have a pattern that Iam trying to write the instructions for. I have such a hard time with that. I dont read instructions,I eyeball it and then try it on my own.Sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt.So anyhooo I am going back to the hole,too bad its not the rabbit hole! lol
