A Day Off!

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

Yea!!! We have a day off in the middle of the week, thanks to Becky and Colleen working together today. What did we do? Well, we opened the store at 9am to meet a fabric rep, only to find out one of us (anonymous) had the time an hour off, so we went to breakfast while we waited for the fabric rep to come to the 10 am appointment. After we finished ordering some gorgeous fabric f0r March, April and May delivery, we came home. At a loss about what we used to do when we had a day off, I remembered I had forgotten to email payroll figures. Whoops! Big mistake. That done, I started penciling in classes for April-June. I’ve come up with some new classes this quarter including a 2 session class by Frauke Palmer, featuring her beautiful hanging we have in the store by the front door. It’s lime green pieced background, (session 1) with gorgeous magenta and purple “vases” (session 2). It will be a fantastic class, completed right before the quilt needs to travel to a show. Be sure and stop in and look up!

Well, I really should be finishing laundry and cleaning the bathrooms, but it’s more fun to think ab out new classes. And, of course, I could sew a little. I’m working on a sample table runner/wall hanging for celebrating birthdays. It’s really cute and super easy.  I’ll post a picture when I’m done.

I must admit after today’s cold rain and gray skies, I am officially done with winter. If it can’t be tons of snow, enough to cause all fo us to stay home and sew for days, then it might as well be warm and sunny. So, bring on the warm and sunny. There, I said it!
