Two weeks ago I made a bunch of potholders. When they didn’t sell right away, I thought that people had enough potholders. I had saturated them market. As much as I like making potholders, I gave myself the pep talk, it wasn’t a bad thing I told myself, I could make something new instead.
Then in just a few days, I got some emails and people asking if I had any potholders for sale. I told them all I had run out and was making more. So today I got to it.
I don’t know why I always think the end is upon me. I don’t sell some potholders in a couple of days and I think I’m over. You’d think after seven years of doing this I’d know that there are slow times in every business. When things are going well I remember, but when things slow down, I forget that there are always ups and downs.
Maybe someday I’ll finally get it. Anyway, tomorrow I’ll be posting the potholder I made today. And they’ll be for sale.

If you DID stop making potholders, I would KNOW the end is near! You are a hoot Maria Wulf!
I know Janet. I don’t know if I could stop making them.
