Cleaning out and getting things done!

I did it! I found a picture of market! It's not really of the booth, more of Ben and I, but it's market! Jeannie came through for me, she took a lot of good pictures and posted them on her blog along with names and links. Thank you Jeannie!


Now that market is over we have a lot of work to do. Our pattern inventory is uncomfortably low (which is a really good thing, but a lot of work to remedy), I have emails backed up like you wouldn't believe (I'm sorry if I owe you an email, I plan to get that tackled tonight and tomorrow), and my loft was a pigsty until today. It wasn't just messy, it was to the stage where it just needed a good cleaning out (like my inbox LOL!). I spent half of the day yesterday cleaning, after school was done, and half of the day today cleaning...and at this very moment.....I am sitting in a perfectly clean loft! It's like a fresh slate! Oh the ideas that come bubbling out of my head when I have an uncluttered work area! It feels so nice and fresh!

Next week I will be making lots of samples for a trunk show that will be traveling from shop to shop for the next few months to showcase our patterns (if you are a shop owner or know of a shop owner who would like to participate give me a call at 205-527-3560). That's going to be fun to share here! And when all that is done I'm going to get to work on the next pattern that I'm very excited about. As soon as I get a good sample made you will be the first to see! I think you will like this one.

 Ahhhh....I'm happy. It just makes me ridiculously giddy to get things all cleaned out and to be getting so much work done. So if you need me, I'll be here in my clean office sipping coffee and answering emails.....

I love this picture Sam. Your both is so cute and you are so very pretty.
You have gotten way more done than I have. I got my sewing room almost clean, and then got sidetracked, as usual.
Ok, I am inspired. Back to work for me!

Oh, and if you need another tester for your new pattern, I am raising my hand.

Great picture!
My girls and I are excited to see your next pattern. Thank you for creating such lovely designs! There is something very special about little girls. And keeping them as "little girls" can be hard to do in today's society. I love the fact that these clothes are modest and fun. Thanks again! :)

What a lovely display you have. You are so talented! It's nice to get things cleaned out that have been needing it - this summer holidays I've been doing that here & there & it just feels so much nicer.
Hope you get everything done that you need to - sounds like you sure are having a busy time!
