Happy Birthday Pam!

This hornbook was designed to celebrate Pam from 3 Stitches birthday. The chart will be available from the shop on September 3, 2011. Happy Birthday Pam!

Long Night.....UGH

After Yoga last night I stupidly plugged in my Iphone to sync it and back it up. Something that should have taken 10 minutes max ended up lasting 5 1/2 hours later. 6 support calls and having to up-grade Apple Support Plan to get the matter fixed. I still am trying to recover my ITunes. I cannot update my Nano till I figure out what to do. It still has my music on it. My Iphone does not.....Anyway. Work not going well. I am no sleep and still working with Apple to recover data.

On a side note here it a new piece that will be released at the end of September. It was the Afternoon with your Favorite Designer at Baltimore TNNA. Acorn Pocket Pillow. The piece comes with the front and back paper pieces to make the notebook. Instructions on how to make it are included with the piece.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and to all my friends on the Eastern Shore-be prepared and be safe.

I finished working on kits. I made a pea pod. Now I am learning how to use chop stitchs with my left hand....not sure that is going to happen.

Charts and Kits

Well, I still have to finish sending charts to the distributors. I think I will have to go to Office Depot again for paper....I am finishing up with some kits and I am stuck....I put the linen in a special place so I could get to it and now i do not know where that special place is.....ugh

Yeah all the charts are out the door.

I got all the orders printed and out the door. I have to ship to the distributors the first of the week. I have some kits and supply ordering to handle tomorrow. No rest for me....I am hoping to maybe drop in at the pool. I have not done that in a week or so.

I did not get to stitch tonight. But hope to do it tomorrow. Then I will see how I am adjusting to my new finger...

Off to bed. Just finished with a double stuffed oreo-I think Yoga class is in the furture too.

OMG OMG I did it!!!!

The post is up and the alphabet is there. I hope to get it on the web...well that is still another long story. Have a great Friday and weekend. I am still trying to get the last orders out and kit a couple kits up....

Alphabet to be used for My Friend and Best Friend

ok-this is a new one for me and I hope that it works! Melinda from The Stitching Post caught me at Market and asked if I had put in an alphabet for My Friend and Best Friend since I had suggested that they could be changed to My Sister or My Daughter and so on. Well of course I did not, so here is the alphabet that you can use for these pieces.

From Market, From Market, From Market I Go

I have spent the week catching up with sending out charts from the show in Baltimore. I have class kits to get completed and still have thread orders coming in and getting straight.

I hope to be caught up this weekend. It is hard to get everything done with a broken finger on the right hand, but I am managing.

Pictures will be up-Do not forget you still have time to sign up for the Maritime Sewing Case in California at Sit N Stitch. I have posted the phone number earlier. I will post it again this weekend.

I am off to work-Have a wonderful day.

Working away

Trying to get things done with two broken fingers on your right hand when you are right handed is hard.

I am finishing up with getting the last of the orders out. Tomorrow should be the last day of doing this.

I am trying to get one project out the door to be photographed. Finishing is hard, but hey-I will just suck it up and deal with it.

Will start posting regularly in the next day or so. Just running out of time in the day.

Will post new things on Facebook this week and Hoffman had some of them up last Friday.

Well-off to finish the piece so I can make it to Fedex.

Back-and posting

Hey everyone I have had a whirlwind couple of weeks. Got a few days of fun in the sun before the Baltmore TNNA show. I managed to break my finger at the beach. So getting ready for market was hard. Of course it was my right hand and my middle finger. Life goes on.

The market was slow, but shops were eager to buy. There will be announcements about future shows on the TNNA Yahoo Groups. An afternoon with your favourite designer was a blast. All of the projects were wonderful and it was an honor for me to be included with this group!

I signed up classes and I have requests for some new designs, so I will be busy.

I am on the way home and I have some printing to do and prep work for the next up coming classes this September and October.

I will be teaching on a cruise in January, more information to come! Again bright colors and fun time items. Think sea horses, fish and sea weed.

Hoffman has some of my new items. Norden will get a shipment this week and the rest of the new items will go out soon.

That is all for now more when I get home.
