winter is marching along outside with bouts of snow then sleet then rain. little by little the mountain of snow in the parking lot next door is turning into a pool in the middle of the sidewalk. eliot finds it fascinating. we took him for a well visit the other day and the little guy still only weighs in at 21lbs. he is almost 3 feet though, especially when he walks on his tip toes.
otherwise, all is well in baby health.
this below is me as a little dr. i was digging around through old pictures my dad sent to me a while back. i remember that doll pretty clearly, and that table.. very seventies.
a little bunny has been somewhat of a challenge lately. i have been having a lot of struggle trying to decide where to go with it and how i want to proceed. i had a good 'liberal arts education' moment with Ann Veronica. as i mentioned, i went in and showed samples and they placed a small order (12 pieces, 6 outfits). i agreed to a fairly lousy consignment deal (50/50) just to have a deadline and keep working..get stuff out there etc. once they got the order they decided it was out of their price range after all and they wouldnt be taking them! a really aggravating experience. i think they were expecting me to lower my prices but i was giving them a really good deal. i didnt want to burn any bridges but i did let them know i wish they had though about their price point a little more before they placed the order. i tried to turn it into a positive experience by having her show me what sells in that shop and why. that did, at least, give me some frame of reference. ah well... hopefully i can get them in another shop.
this has made me question my attachments to the designs and fabrics etc. i dont want to cheapen them by using lower quality fabrics etc but i think i do need to come up with better fabric suppliers. learning as i go....
