I ended up quitting the day job, and I was full of confidence for the first week. I definitely filled my days with lots of felting and was able to really spend time on the projects I liked, like the octopus featured on this post. She has to be one of my best creations yet!
Now I’m starting to get notices of potential event closures due to the Covid virus and I am nervous. I respect the decision certain counties have made to limit large social gatherings. I really do, but it’s hard not to be a bit concerned too. Not for physical health but my financial future. When I put in my notice at the day job I had so many selling opportunities lined up! Many are still there – so far, but with the closures and the new recession hitting I worry I picked a very bad time to follow my dreams.
