32  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Back Loops Only?? on: January 15, 2006 05:16:17 AM
I am trying to crochet after 15 years or so, what does the term "Work in back loops only" mean?  Any help is greatly appreciated!
33  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Why Am I so Peeved? on: January 15, 2006 05:07:59 AM
I am not understanding why this upsets me so much.   How does one handle this type of "flattery" Huh?

I sell lots of things at work.  When I started bringing in my beaded jewelry I had lots of orders, made some custom items and was even asked to make up about 20 pairs of Breast Cancer Awareness Earrings for the Relay for Life Silent Auction.  There is a lady in my department who started in with how much she liked my stuff, etc but never ordered anything...no problem.  Then she started in with how much she wanted to learn how to do something to keep her occupied; she needed a hobby.  Being the encouraging person I am, I prompted her to find a hobby she liked to do.  She informed me that she knew how to crochet, knit, ceramics, sew, etc.  What does she do?  She goes and takes a beading class and starts selling her jewelry at work also.  Honestly, I am upset because it was my idea first and I had the market cornered there.

I know, I know...sounds childish but it peeves me.  Now she makes curt little comments to me when I wear something I have made and gets a look on her face and makes stupid comments.  I have gotten to the point of just being polite and dancing around the answer when she asks me "Oh, how did you put that together, what materials did you use?"

If she is sitting with me and someone comes up to me and asks about a piece I am wearing or wants me to make them something, out of the corner of my eye, I can see her roll her eyes.  She has made comments to me like " Oh wow, now your big time" and blah blah blah.  Now she wants to learn glass work.  I have spent an incredible amount of money in supplies, classes, etc to learn what I do and it is an every growing and learning experience. 

She coped an attitude when she asked if I would teach her how to sell on Ebay.  I told her I would be happy to for $25.00.  That shut her up.  Heck, I taught myself.  There are directions on Ebay to learn how. 

How do I handle this situation, I gotta work with this woman. 

Sorry for the long rant...I needed to get that off my chest.
