You know that feeling of accomplishment that you get when you have made something a friend ordered and it was a project that took several weeks to complete, that feeling that a load has been lifted and you can now move on. My friend Debbie came over yesterday. Her mother passed away last Monday. She is the one who commissioned the baby blanket and sweater set. If you recall, I had finished it awhile back, but did not call her because since around Thanksgiving her mom had been hospitalized and one thing led to another and her condition snow-balled from bad to worse. When Deb saw the blanket and sweater set she was so excited, her words, "I love, love, love it! It is so cute!" I was sure she would, but it is always good to hear that sort of reaction. I was done with that, she took it home and what will I do next????????
On my way home this evening from babysitting my grandson, my cell phone rang. Of course it was snowing and there was enough on the road to have my Jeep in 4-wheel drive. I wasn't going to land in a ditch hunting for my cell phone, but at a STOP I dug it out of my purse to see who called. After all, it could be an emergency, right?..........It was Deb......."Sue, the reason I called is I want to know if you will make me another heart blanket, only bigger this time, crib size, and another sweater only bigger, all in a lighter shade of pink. I don't need it for about 2 months or so, I will go buy the yarn, how much do you think I need to buy?"
Now don't get me wrong, I like that she was so happy she wants more, and she has ordered things from me on other occasions in the past......now the pressure is on again. And, my friends, this girlfriend does crochet too, LOL. Looks like when she finds that yarn I will be back in the crocheting business again, for sure.
