Works-in-Progress Wednesday (05/19/19)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

I'm having a great week, y'all! I don't know if it's my new planner, or what, but... I don't feel overwhelmed with "stuff" this week and I'm getting everything accomplished that I need to. I don't even know myself, haha!

In ceramics, I've finished my Patreon ceramics and they are in the hands of the recipients (and I'm planning out the next three months in advance - is it a set of something? Only Patrons will find out!) (Just kidding, I'll probably show them off after the fact, y'all know me.). Speaking of showing off, I'm showing off the rest of this year's Mugs of the Month - there are a couple I'm not done with yet, but I'll give y'all peeks as I get them done. Oh - and I have some touch-up work to do on a couple of custom order mugs, and those and the Llampaca mugs are in the kiln as we speak. After that, the custom order mugs will also need to be decal fired, and then I'll be contacting a handful of people.

In soap, I have some made that I'll be ready to wrap later this week, or over the weekend - then I'll have quite a lot of restocks.

In yarn, I have a couple of skeins to rewind and restock, and I need to place a base yarn order soon because I have plans to bring in another new color in July or August.

In Patreon, I mentioned the ceramics for Patrons... I'm also deep into polishing up the next chapter, which will go up Sunday. This is a really exciting chapter for me to write - I'm lining up a lot of fun things that are going to happen in the next chapter, things that I consider the "actual" story, the part of the story that the last ten chapters have been but a prologue for. Intrigued???

Let's see... what else? Oh! The Shop Elf Shenanigans section is finally up in the store - those Gaycos are going fast!

Another oh! -- I mentioned custom orders up there... do I owe you a custom order? I feel like there's someone that I forgot about, something from earlier this year, but I can't find an email about it. If we've spoken about definites on a custom order and it was more than three months ago, and you haven't heard from me, drop me a line, please! I'm hoping that the feeling I have is just the always-feeling I usually have of "I've forgotten something"... but if it's not, I owe you big apologies!

Lastly, in knitting... I finished up two pairs of socks a couple of weeks ago (my Cherry Bomb socks and my Whooooo's Ready for the End of Winter socks) and I have two more on the needles... a complicated cabled pattern in Buttercream on the Nagata base, and a modified pair of Monkey socks in some Colinette that I dug out of my stash. I'll have to show those off - they're a gorgeous shade of teal/blue/green!

OK, I think that's it for me. What about y'all? What are you working on this week? What are you crossing off your list? What's overwhelming you? How are you doing?
