I was behind....

wowsers...I slacked over 3 days replying to comments....epp!!  So, I have gone through all my comments and added my 2 cents in bold--if you are curious to what I might have to say :)  Dunno if I'll go through all my emails to reply though....seriously, it's a lot of emails.  Please don't be offended if I didn't respond.

OOOo....I got mail!  All the way from the UK!  Ms. Karol-Ann sent me this wonderful care package from her home country visit--I love it all and the pin is perfect for my pin collection:

And this is what I spent all day at work doing was a huge challenge.  It's for a customer who wanted this as an aisle runner for her daughter's wedding.  Sharon (co-worker) designed the big green amperstamp and I ironed it on, then I digitized the specific font she wanted and using the Designer SE at the shop, did the embroidery.  My boss satin stitched it down today.  I hope the customer is happy with the results as much as we are!  The white muslin was not good quality and is very hard to keep from wrinkling.

So, this weekend I plan to sew!  I haven't spent time just sewing in a long while.  With all my busy weekends, visits and trips around the country, I'm glad to have just a weekend to vegged and maybe get some things accomplished in my own project bin! .....ooh I just realized I get to sleep in tomorrow as well---BONUS!


  1. Sleep in! I never get to sleep in :-(
    Glad it arriived safely (hope it's not too African for you LOL)

    My body had other plans....I woke up at 7 and couldn't fall back to I'm up now and going to start sewing!

    I LOVE the fabric! I'm definitely going to use it!! Thank you soo much!

    The runner for the wedding is beautiful! How cool that everyone got a chance to work on it.

    It was a lot of work, but from what I heard the customer was very pleased--whew!
