'Na'vi are like lynxes genetically altered to play basketball'

So I spent this evening eating a lovely italian meal, in a cosy restaurant that i've walked past many a time, followed by a late show of Avatar 3D, All curtosy of my mum and dads, Christmas pressie (THANK YOU)
I had a truely lovely evening, and for anyone who hasn't seen the movie yet, I'd highly recommend it. The imagery was certainly imaginative, (even if the story line wasn't). And I'd definitely watch it again.

Then Having reached home at 2am in the morning, I found 9 sales in my in-box, which will keep me well a truly busy during my Holidayzzzz..............................

Roll on my Christmas Break

I'm so looking forward to taking a few days off, I've been on full turbo power for 6 months, with constant deadlines, every day.

This year has been phenomenal, and it's taught me a whole heap of lessons, in relation to time management, business strategies, customer service, quality of work, my gosh the list is endless.

But i'm thankful for every single one of my customers who have helped me develop my iLE AiYE brand, has pushed my comfort zone way beyond what I thought my limitations were, and inevitable helped me to produce some amazing products.
I can't believe it's all come out of me. It just goes to show, anything is possible.

So wishing you all a lovely end to 2009, a happy Christmas, and a peaceful and healthy 2010.

It is new

This is a custom order from one of my regular customers in New York, she actually requested something quite different from this, more in the style of my Moment 2 Myself cardi, but with a smaller/tighter stitch. Whilst I was knitting it, I really wasn't getting very exciting, maybe it was because the yarn and needle size are to close to the recommended specs. which to be honest is not somthing I ever do. After a convo to my customer explaining that I didn't think the end result was going to be unique, she entrusted me to do what ever I felt fit.

So this is it. ....
I'm now waiting to hear back from her, it'll be a nail biting afternoon.

Good news, my lovely customer likes it, so it will be heading off tomorrow. and the bonus is another good customer loves it too, and is thinking of having it in another shade.
