thieves or desperate artist?
I am not a happy chappy today. We had a customer today who stole some of my work so I am not impressed. The top is my wrap for all of my flower stitch samples which she helped herself to and inside there were loads of pages - one in particular I have always loved since I made it with all of the burnt out and reapplied flowers not to mention a little bag for which I don't seem to have a pic. These things take ages to work out and do and I cart them around and shoe people my samples - I even took this book to Ally Pally this year. It's not just your work - it's the time to replace it. Means I don't leave any samples around without my supervision ever again. The samples she didn't help herself to (or maybe she was in a hurry to stuff it in her bag) were all over the floor. What ever else she may have stolen I won't know - just send out heaps of very bad karma please....
All this as well as a bad supplier week.
However lots of bookings arriving for both of the workshops and I think a meal out tonight to cheer me up..... and we got a new shipment of Sari Ribbon, Sari Twist and Sari Yarn and well as a new one - Rangi Changi - this is a rayon yarn in the most glorious colours. SOmething has to cheer one up when the chips are down.
