NEW Roger image & FREEBIE!!!

Well after a wee cry this afternoon - a few emotions stirred from yesterday's visit to Leeds I managed to get some digis done. 
Yesterdays visit - The doc discussed with us possible reasons as to why my first cycle of IVF treatment didn't work & what they will do different in my 2nd cycle (when I have it) They are really good/nice doctors & he even saw us after we'd not actually been booked in properly for yesterday!!
Going back to the hospital brought my emotions back to the surface because the visit yesterday in our minds would have been my 7 week scan. I was also expecting them to say we'll have to go on a waiting list but in actual fact if we'd had the money yesterday we could have booked in for round 2! I wasn't sure about having another go but if I'd had the money I would have booked myself in there & then yesterday. We have the letter & phone number so as soon as we find the whopping £4250 we can ring up & book in.
Best start a whip round!!!! That's a lot of Rogers to sell & knitting to do LOL :0)

Anyways onto my images for today!
I have done a new Roger which was inspired by my dad's love of military modelling & I actually made this image a few weeks ago for his birthday card.

How I price my toys ....

.....I thought I would share with you today how I price my knitted Monsters.
I spent a long time researching how to price them and looking at how much other people charge for their toys (which are often not CE tested which they should be!)
Pricing ingredients: Cost of the products: wool, stuffing Use of equipment & other: Knitting needles, scissors, electricity for lights  My time: Designing the toy, knitting the toy, testing the toy CE Test: Making sure my toy is to CE standards
Now you have to decided how much you want to pay yourself an hour and any extra profit
How much do you get paid an hour? Shall we say minimum wage £7.50 per hour
The largest toy I make is Pookiechu (the pink one) she takes me 16 hours to make 16 x 7.50 = 120
so that makes Pookiechu £120 before I've even added on the cost of any wool etc!
I therefore decided to pay myself a lot less and she became £65 However even though I know you are paying for a quality toy made with quality products and to the CE stand…
