I have been back from the flower shop since just before New Years but had neglected to post anything because of the busy season. I apologize.
We are in full swing with rug hookers meeting again on Wednesdays, Stitchers on Thursday mornings and Knitters on Tuesday afternoons.
I am working hard at trying to put together a schedule so that you can all access it on the internet or pick a copy up in the store. It is for self preservation as those of you who know me know that life has gotten very busy.
The twins will be coming regularly on Sunday nights and staying until Monday evenings so that both parents can have a break. I have been trying to get into shape (lol) so that I am up to the task. Payton was up from 1:00 until 3 a.m. I had sent Sheena back to bed and stayed up with her. At 3 a.m. I decided to make the decision to feed her again. I'm a Mother right? I can make that decision. Besides, her own Mother was sleeping so I just got that bottle out of the fridge and gave her a couple more ozs. Off she went to dreamland until 5:30 a.m. Woo Hoo! For those of you who know Travis, he has gone to play hockey for the South Muskoka Shield in Gravenhurst. I have never been in a colder arena in my life. For now Ciff and I are empty nesters at least until the twins arrive for their weakly vist.
For those of you who are waiting for Frill Seeker yarn and for Ondos we are waiting patiently. We did receive two new colours of Ondas this afternoon but have 5 on back order. We will get it when they ship it. It is as simple as that. I don't know where I am in the line but when they work their way down to me I will receive my shipment. You know, it's like being on hold, your order is important to us, STAY ON THE LINE, I would like to hang up but then I won't get my yarn. lol. Patience is a virtue. Unfortunately not one of mine.
There are several new yarns coming and I am excited about them. Hopefully we're not all out in the gardens when they arrive.
Stitchers, there is a yard sale table of cross stitch patterns as well as books that are on for half the price shown on the books. These patterns are already reduced and a great buy for those of you looking for something new but have exhausted the budget after Christmas. lol
Upcoming events. Fran Vidal will be teaching a seger class on Monday January 17th. This will be a 3 part class for those of you who need a serger refresher. Brenda Allen will be back to teach a techniques class using the Square in a Square method and for beginner quilters I will be teaching a Log Cabin start to finish class on Thursday afternoons for three weeks beginning January 27th from 1-3 p.m. I am also doing UFO Fridays again. Please check to see what dates are available.
Our regular Hook in will be on January 28th beginning at 10 a.m. Please make sure that you are on our list.
Hope all of you had a very Happy New Year and I look forward to seeing you in the shop
