Argh! I'm pissed off at myself! As I've previously alluded to, I've got two pieces to be framed for a client. I had picked a very lovely and quite expensive molding (over $5/ft!), this evening when I got home from work it was time to get cutting. I'm very careful, I check my measurements, and off I'm cutting with my compound mitre saw in the basement. I take my pieces upstairs and I start cleaning up my ends and trimming down using my mire trimmer. I always like to get one side down to the right dimensions then as I trim the opposite side I realize oh I must of grabbed one of the top or bottom pieces. Nope... argh! I've cut it one inch too small!!! The worst part is I had enough but not enough to cut two more 22 1/2 inch pieces. Crap! Crap! Crap! Now I've got to go out buy a new 9ft length and seeing as its my mistake, guess who pays for it? Yup I do! Actually what that means is I won't make any money on the job. Todd and I have had a little chit-chat and he thinks I'm wayyy undercharging, and he's right.
This morning we woke up to more snow! So here's my lovely snow covered spruce tree. We're supposed to get over 2cm of snow overnight. Sounds like we've got more coming over the next few days. Urgh!
I got a lovely little surprise in the mail! A beautiful skein of GAST in Mistletoe! How appropriate for the season! Thank you to my Belgium mystery gifter! I'll have to find just the right thing to stitch with it.
Oh well one frame is made now, I guess I can have dinner and stitch!
