One of the longer-running projects I've been researching/working on is what I call 'avatar plush'... stuffy toys that resemble a particular fur. I also want to make more realistic animals -- something on the level of Steiff, even if I only make limited runs of them. I'm pretty good at modifying patterns, but I don't have the spacial skills to make a pattern from scratch, so it's very slow going to make even a single toy.
Two part-time barely-above-minimum-wage jobs are not going to give me enough breathing space on daily living needs, let alone handle that kind of discretionary spending, and yet that's the kind of necessary item that would get a small business started for me. So, I frust and muddle about trying to do the best with what I have, meanwhile my brain goes through scenarios on how to procure a grant or loan to get a custom plush-toy company off the ground.
It makes for rather strange dreams.
