Zoom!

Can you believe it's the end of January already? Whoa, time sure flies by fast! I don't have too much to say today--just the usual stuff going on. Been busy making these Valentines as fast as I can embroider :o)--it's been fun having an item that sells so well, I don't even have to think about what to make, just keep making these hearts! Kinda relaxing really (and happily we were able to pay a bunch on our oil bill with the money made from them too, and that's really nice!) AND I've about wiped out my local thrift shops button supplies! lol I guess that's nice for them.

I managed to sneak in this pretty bag--just cuz' I needed to do something different one day--so soft and pretty. That's vintage chenille on the bottom. Wouldn't this be nice to hide some of that shabby, but not so chic stuff hanging around the house? :o)

I also did up this batch of pretty coasters for a dear customer. I was so pleased to find another package of the vintage pink/gold rick rack that really makes these so charming. The new owner is quite pleased with her new coasters.

Linds has been enjoying her dance competition--and we've been enjoying watching them! It's really a fun sport (?) to be a spectator at--the music is great, the costumes are beautiful, and the dancing so fun to watch. Here is a professional pic taken during one of the competitions so you can see my sweet baby in all her made-up glory! I did take a video at one of them, but have to learn how to do the youtube thing yet---so maybe down the line I can share one with you.

Well, I have to go get her from dance practice now--we'll talk again soon :o)

I love those Valentine hearts Misses Kwitty, I'm not surprised they're selling. I'm so glad you're still around too, I was just thinking about you this morning.

You certainly have been busy! I've missed you but figured lots of things are going on and you'd be back when things settle down to a dull roar.
