Hey, guys, this isn’t going to be much of a post tonight, but I’m here! And actually I’ve crafted a little bit on my 3rd York the Owl and a very little bit on a design-in-progress. Just enough work on the new design so that, when my sister comes bouncing down the stair when she wakes up this morning, I can tell her that I worked on the design a bit.
I was going to have an awesome work-in-progress picture for you of my owl I’m working on. I even took the picture. Then my brain woke up and I remembered that the York the Owl pattern isn’t released yet. So no cool picture today.
I do have some businessy news and then some good news.
Good news first: My tendonitis is better! Just supporting it with an elbow sleeve for hours at a time — plus resting the arm a bit — really helped. The funny thing is, one of the blogs I love ,The Art of Manliness (don’t judge!), recently had a blog post on tendonitis and how to take care of it. It really amused me, because it’s aimed at guys and weight-lifting, and my injuries are most likely craft and typing related, but I’m going to share the post here anyway. Because there is some good and possibly useful stuff here for crafters as well.
As for businessy news: I’m going to be starting to post weekly reminder to my testers to check on progress. A lot of progress (or any progress) doesn’t necessarily have to be made each week, it’s just so I have a better idea of where people are at. Also , it helps me remember to post reminders if I do it on the same day each week. I kind of let my two tests this time get away from me and got overwhelmed to where I barely knew who had completed a test or not. This is my way of getting more organized.
Well, got to run away and work out. Just wanted to touch base with y’all!
