Hi Fellow Stitchers!    

      Finished packing up my boxes o'product for the Prim Stitcher's Merchant Mall this next weekend.  Trunk shows have arrived ... one is being sent to the hotel for me to pick up there.  Stephanie's Fabrics will be sending her selections of "primitive shaded" Evenweave fabrics to the the hotel for me on Monday as well, so I won't have to pack up those.  And Retromatnic Fripperies is sending me "new since Nashville fripperies" to show there as well!   I have new scissors and some super cool kits and other goodies so ... IF I have any thing 'new' left over upon my return to the shop, I'll be sharing those with you on my What's New pages!

     I did have a meltdown yesterday ... I had all the boxes and more boxes all piled up by the front door here at home and realized .. there was NO way I could fit all of that in my RAV4 ... along with the shutter stands and table top display shelves and bins and mini tables I'd be taking!   Dave ... from a distance ... was my voice of reason and helped me start carrying everything out to do a 'practice loading' of the vehicle. And ... after I got through crying ... discovered it all fit!  (I kind of forgot that ... I have 'mad packing skills".)

   This is all new to me ... I know how to set up my shop at my retreats in the hotel room, but this is an unknown setup venue with other merchants in one large room utilizing tables only and since I'm not sure how it's all going to go together, I'm stressing a bit.  It WILL be fun though! Besides, I'm really good at stressing!!

And, once the weekend is over, I'm 'done' with stuffs I have to go to until October and my shop's next retreat.  I've not got plans finalized yet, but mark down October Friday the 13th for your next fun SNT date!!


With that .... it's time to show you the newest that have arrived this week.

       Just about finished with Heartstring Samplery's " Coffee Quaker II ... should be completed tomorrow night!  Then .. onto something new. Have to find something I want to take with me to the Retreat in Columbus ... I was going to to do Kathy Barrick's Up On The Housetop on 40ct Silk Gauze but may have changed my mind .... tomorrow I'll scour the shop for something that catches my eye (and probably pick Kathy's design after all)!
