thanks very much. ( I can ship… )
I ran my own business for YEARS, so I have some idea of what I’m doing, but am busy researching. my website is coming along nicely.
am working on a ‘pop-up’ bakery for mid-winter, to test the market/area.
now for the new years plans:
apparently, I am a hoarder. going through my closets, drawers, etc. I realized that the drawer full of embroidery floss I’ve been hoarding is nearly FORTY years old.
it’s about time I used it. I DID do a needlepoint hanging about twenty years ago with some of it.
I remember I got it for ten cents a skein at a hobby shop closing.
this is in addition to the hundreds of french tapestry wool I got last year? two years ago?
I have no excuse. so, from time to time, some one please give me a gentle reminder, as in: HEY, LADY! have you used your embroidery floss yet??? along with a smack on the backside of my head.
a lot of it is in a nasty tangled mess, and I spent THREE HOURS yesterday, detangling it. I’m almost done. sigh.
I have a wall hanging for Christmas, cut out, I just need to stitch it together.
and hang it.
and I need to lose that last 20 pounds. then I can get into my fabric stash and redo my entire wardrobe. I refuse to waste my lovely materials on a size I’m going to reduce out of. wools, silks, satins, cottons… oh my. I might just LOOK at it all again today.
I have a list of cookies to bake today, some for family, some for customers.
rye bread is rising. smells good, along with the tree. (fraser fir.)
lets see, what else…
I guess that’s all I have on my to do list, except for running out for cat food, and a bottle of wine.
