Colorful Quilled Rooster
This colorful quilled rooster was a last-minute commission request that almost ended in disaster! I took the order on a Wednesday and told my client it would take roughly a week to do. But in my head I was thinking the following week and not mentally including Friday night or Saturday/Sunday.
So the weekend came and we were so busy we didn’t sit down once. By Sunday night, I was so exhausted that picking up a quilling tool was just out of the question. Monday night was the official “beginning” of the project. Normally I would have my evenings free, but that week, we had company show up twice, putting me behind by even more. I had temporarily increased my hours at another job and my free time was seriously impacted.
Needless to say, the project ran past my mental time budget by a few days, but I was able to get it delivered the following Wednesday.
My customer loved it (and so did his wife, the final gift recipient).
