101 in 1001 Update

Not wanting to bore you with my antics of accomplishing my 101 in 1001 goal, I have not updated too often. But as it has been a while since I reviewed this I thought it would be good to check and document how far I have got.
You may already know I have a job and I am thoroughly enjoying it

This also means my goal to increase my income by £1000.00 is achieved. It involves a great deal of walking almost every day, the weight is falling off, great as my sister is getting married in the spring, so I will hopefully look trim healthy for the day.
The new job requires a great deal of reading, not only policies, but learning manual and process for helping clients, never a day goes by without me having to read through a manual to get a better understanding of how best to help the clients, great learning curve.
My brother has been ill, so inadvertently I have seen and spoken to my brothers and sisters more often than normal and more than I had aimed to do in my goal. By the way he is on the mend. I am still visiting as he needs his paper work sorted.
My mum is local to my work and to my brother so I see her at least once a week but often it's more. Also sourced new kitchen for my mum and project managed the installation and decorated her lounge and hall way  so was around for quite a bit with her

Pictures of work in progress, I will try and post the finished project sometime - no promises 

I have noticed that my house has the least progress, so this is going to be my priority for the next couple of months.

The Made it Market Craft Fair

Today I attended The Made it Market craft fair. I have attended a few of these fairs organised by Sarah Rowden and her team and have always found them really well organised with great attention to detail. The events are always well attended with a constant footfall from the beginning of the day to the very end. 
Sarah and her team is taking a well earned rest and hopefully will be back bigger an better. 
Today I sold a few items

I cannot show one of the items because I did not get an opportunity to take any photos.  I can say it was made up in the same fabric used to make the skirt below, the new skirt is in an A line shape.
Business Card
Although I did not sell a lot I gave out over a hundred business cards with one custom order. I am hoping the business cards will generate more sales.

This skirt is the custom order in a size 9/10 Hopefully the fabric is still available in the shop.
I was once told by a wise old lady that I should celebrate my successes, so I bought an indian meal. yes last of the big spenders me 

Have a great weekend and I hope your day have been eventful as mine.
