We are down to our last two weeks here. We will leave after Labor Day weekend. Usually I am counting the days until we leave. I blame my travel bug for that antsy feeling to get on the road again, but it did not show up this time. Our stay here has been pleasant and our co-workers have been great.
On The Cutting Board
This will probably be my last order for this year. I will not be listing my new projects or renewing the old ones until next year. I have decided to close the shop while we are working at Amazon.com. I will open the shop back up in January. Between 40 to 60 hour weeks, it will be very hard to find time to mail orders. I do plan to keep sewing during the winter, so please stop by to see what I am working on this winter.
I was a little worried about the deep inward curve puckering from the stiff fabric when I sewed the layers together. It came out so much better than I had hoped for. Nice and flat.
I plan to spend the next two weeks putting together projects for this winter. I need to cut out more mug rugs and mark them for embroidering. I have a few wall hangings, but I would love to add to the pile. Oh yes, I should also put together a couple of quilt kits for those energetic evenings when I feel like sewing.
