I've been working hard today (didn't stitch at all yesterday). I've been beading and backstitching, and cross stitching the Butterfly Princess. I probably have a few more days of working on it. But I can already see it's the nicest thing I've designed so far. So ... let's hope the UK magazines will also think it is lovely and buy it.
It's hard that even if they do buy it, I won't be paid, or see it published for about 12 months. Luckily that won't always be the case. As I get better known and when I have the website up and running, I'll be able to release designs as soon as I've finished stitching them.
I think the next 12 months will be the hardest as I only have the designs I completed in the last 6 months of 2011 to rely on for income. Well, I guess that's the choice I made.
But for now I can just enjoy the beautiful Butterfly Princess.
I can't post pictures of it here, but if you would like to see it finished, leave me a comment and your email, and I'll send you a pic of it.
