The 12th Annual Final Countdown

Wow! Our twelfth year doing this, and I’m STILL not organized! Haha! I know a lot of folks are saying they will be glad to see this year behind them.

100 Days!

2019 Final Countdown Task Three

Well, yesterday was one of those days. I found every possible way to procrastinate (such as these), and never even stepped foot into my sewing room. But in my defense, I do have some tight January longarm deadlines, so I spent my time running the longarm, and even tho I wanted to, I did not […]

2019 Final Countdown Task Two

Yikes! I cleaned out a file drawer, started on another one, went through a pile of magazines, gathered all the paperwork I need to send to my accountant, sorted through a box of old patterns and passed the ones I didn’t want on to a friend, and found a place for the ones I want […]
