I am always busy....always. Too busy. But it seems like there is always another frame to carve for a customer or another floss color I want to dye. I was going through the boxes (mountain) of floss cones that I have yesterday. My goodness. I think it will take me a year to dye all of this floss. No kidding. I have so many limited edition boxed sets that I want to do this summer alone. I keep getting ideas for new sets and then hit the dye pot. I will start showing some of those colors in a week or so. I am currently swamped with motto kit and frame orders this week. I keep saying I am going to quit carving frames but I have so many regular customers that have bought from me over the past 11 years and I just can't say no! I did quit stitching mottoes by request as these arthritic hands said no more. I stitched over 500 mottoes in 11 years!
Be sure you have entered the current give-aways still going. The Favorite Red Roses will be drawn on the 21st, the complete Primitive set on the 30th and on the 4th of July we will have a winner for the Star Spangled Banner floss set. Scroll back to previous posts to enter for each of those. And make sure you have sent me your month and birthdate for the Birthday Club. On the 1st of each month I draw a name for a nice present. Floss of course!
I still have a couple of the Cottage Garden, Picket Fence, Red Roses and Sleepy Hollow Collections if you are interested. Some have free skeins with them. Others have adorable charms included with them. I always like to give a little extra with a purchase to make it fun. Speaking of fun.....
I bought some adorable reindeer charms to go with the next Christmas Floss that I dye. Maybe if I find some free time (????!) I can do a small chart to go with the reindeer. Just a thought. I just about gave up sleep years ago to keep up with all of this so I am not sure where I will find some extra time. I need to add about 4 hours onto each day and then maybe...just maybe...I could get everything done on my daily list. Trims....necessaires.....floss and linen to dye....so stay tuned.
And for those of you lucky enough to be celebrating Father's Day today, I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by.
