I have an elderly female client I’ve been working on and off for about a year now. She always requests ripple type blankets and always larger than needed for the person receiving. For example, I’ve made baby blankets to fit a twin sized bed. She wants them to grow with the baby. I like the idea, but not the timing. Two weeks ago she asked me to make a queen size ripple blanket and wanted it done in a week. O.O Yes, really. A week.
Problem with this is that I have three kids, a husband, and plenty of other orders and exchanges going that a week is impossible to do. I told her I would try. Now it’s been two weeks and it’s still not done. I’ve had other projects to finish in that time too so I keep starting and stopping trying to finish this blanket and keep on target with other clients.
I think I’ll do as a friend suggested and cut ties after this blanket is done because I can’t keep up with her demands and run the rest of this business venture too. She seems to think she’s my only customer, even though I’ve told her time and time again that I have other projects going too.
What would you do?
