Lists Lists and more Lists

I am writing a new "To Do" list. Hm-m--m---m, next, I probably need to start making a list of my "To Do" lists....

Two days and counting. I feel like the mileage counter on the GPS, it only shows whole miles to your destination until it gets less than 10 miles away, then it counts in tenths of a mile. I am definitely into the Tenths Away mode, ohmygosh.Notimeforspacesbetweenwordsoranywhereelse.WishmeluckthatIcankeepfromstraying tooofarfrommyliiiiiist.DidImentionthatIamseriouslyADD?????????

Quilt Market Speeding Forward

Help. I need to put brakes on the days that are speeding past me. I have waaaay too many things on my To Do List with waaaay too little time to do them in. To make matters more stressful, it seems we will have to leave for Houston a day earlier!!!

Today we spent the day working on shelves for our shipping boxes that keep falling all over the place any time we try to get some from the stack. Think that little chore was at the top of our "To Do" list??? HAHAHA, it was not even on the first ten pages of "the list." Oh well.

How about another fabric from the "Save Our Ship" line by Yours Truly?

Houston Quilt Market

Houston Quilt Market was the last thing on my mind last night. Hey, my sweet husband who works out of town came home and I love to make him feel missed and welcome. A smile on that man's face is what I live for and he is definitely smiling. Priorities, priorities, heh heh.

Back to Quilt Market. Still have not cleaned up the mess, in fact, it is worse. Am I surprised??? It does not help that my sewing machine is not cooperating. I took it in twice to the shop and both times it worked perfectly for the mechanic. And I thought I only had three "children." Sick, take them to the doctor, not sick.....and still a bill at the end of the visit.

On to more fun things. How about another image of my fabric line? Whatchathink? (anyone out there have any idea what a challenge uploading images is for me??!!!???)

Sneak Peak #2 -- Future Quilts?

Well, for the last three days I have been trying to upload the second image of my fabrics. I watched the little circle thingie on my computer go around and around and around no avail. I will now try it for the fourth time. If this does not work, there will be no more trying until my husband gets here for the weekend. I hope the image is worth this, grrrrr.

Yippppeeeeeeeeeeeeee me. See whacha think.

Favric, Threads, Boxes, Quilts...

I entered the World of Disorder when I entered my sewing room, yesterday. GROSS. I see a clean-up day in my future. But, for today, think I'll go shopping, heh, heh.

Oh, I seem to recall that I said I would start showing images of fabrics that are supposed to be introduced this Spring. First, I freaked out that no fabric company would see them as potential fabrics. Overcame that hurdle. Now, I am in freak-out mode, again, worrying whether shops will purchase them, then, if purchased, will they sit on shelves???, ignored??????....gulp.

A Month of Quilt Shows

Best intentions....supposedly the world is paved with them. If that is true, then my own personal good intentions, alone, could pave the entire state of Louisiana. I mean, I had intended to not only report on our Quilt Shows and travels from Louisiana, to Alabama, to Florida, back to Alabama, on to Louisiana, then to Des Moines, then.....well, you get the idea, I was so confident I even included photographs in my "plan," in my intentions. Brainstorm!!! I just realized what went wrong -- I should have put on my "To Do" list, "Don't write anything the entire time you are gone." We all know how that goes, it immediately gets Done!%$#!!!

All of the shows went well, that means we enjoyed ourselves and spent more than we made. It would be such a shock to my system if I reversed that routine and actually managed to make a profit. My husband might even start to think that is better and even worse, expect it, gulp. I have thought about this a lot as I travel, set up booths, take them down, etc. and realized I love the whole process, some parts, of course, more than others. My favorite part is meeting everyone. Most folks are great. The exceptions can make mincemeat of a day, but, luckily those idiots are few and far between.

Do you like sneak previews? I am going to start posting images of my fabrics that are going to be introduced in the Spring. that considered an intention??? uhoh.
