Then, noticing that the weather was deliciously warm, Trevor took Ingrid and me out on a surprise date- out for lunch and a little shopping. Back at home, I spent time working on little promos to send out with orders- magnets, buttons, and wee bits of fun fibers. In the far far past, I always sent freebies, but then I stopped after I learned through the Etsy forums that many shoppers dislike anything extra with their orders. The only reason I'm starting up with freebies again is because I'm a hoarder, and I love to save little bits and scraps of fibers for novelty yarns, and I imagine many of customers do the same.
Here I am now, snuggled in bed with Queenie Colic, listening to her grunt and fart and belch and occasionally giggle. I rocked her for over an hour while she screamed, and I think her eyelids are finally drooping for a couple hours of sleep.
