I'm sure your days are similar to mine regarding what you hope to accomplish. Somehow the hours fly by, and I've only touched on a few of the items on my list. Today was no exception, as I had hoped to get a good start on packing two trunk shows, stitching a bit more of the limited edition 2015 Christmas ornament, and ordering supplies for another kit to be released in September.
There were good interruptions though, as orders came in which needed to be assembled and packed, there were phone calls from family and friends, I took time to research a trip which my husband and I are taking in a few months, and I made my usual trip to the post office. Hopefully I'll be able to get more stitching done this evening.
Did you know that although we don't have a wholesale market this Fall, a group of vendors have come together to offer a "Harvest Market Hop" in September. It will be an online show and shop owners will be able to preview all of our latest releases and hopefully purchase their favorites directly from the designers. I'll have at least six new titles, plus the previously mentioned kits.
Tomorrow is another day - and with the help of my assistant Dawn, we will get those trunk shows packed and ready to go, and perhaps I'll even be able to finish that ornament. We may even take time to have lunch on the porch - another moment to treasure. Keep your fingers crossed for a productive day, but don't do it for too long - we want you to keep stitching.

Yesterday morning I decided to cut flowers for a fresh bouquet and discovered that the deer have munched on many of my favorites! I think they attacked the yard as if it were a Thanksgiving smorgasbord. Thankfully the hydrangeas, daisies, and roses survived. We need to figure out how to deter our pesky neighbors who live in the woods nearby.
This morning I shipped two more models to the finisher, and am set to begin a Halloween design this afternoon. I love my job and feel so fortunate to have you as my readers. So I'm sending bouquets of thanks for your loyalty.
