Hello everyone- I hope that the weather is better for all of you- today we woke to more snow :( I am really getting tired of this back and forth season thing. Anyway I am back from my conference (went to the National Food Allergy conference) and it was a nice to get a way for a few days but I have decided that Vegas is not really my thing- it has changed a lot since the last time I was there and I am in no hurry to go back.

Our next trip with be with the kids to San Diego- which I think will be great for all of us. It has been too long since we have gotten away as a family and just relaxed. So I am getting caught up here at work and getting things ready for a on-hand/clearance sale. I am loading the items now and will send out a newsletter as soon as that is complete.

Hope everyone has a great weekend coming to decide if we are going to use our tickets we have to the baseball game in snow??

Another designer retiring

Not sure if you have heard but thought I would pass it on but Needle and Frame is expected to go into full retirement in 2011. If you are interested in any of their things you may want to keep that in mind before the end of the year. They are on the online show ( ) if you want to check out some of their things.

I think I have all of the car issues worked out (just waiting for my $) so now time to get caught back up at work. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Fabric Arrived

Yeah!! Most of the fabric arrived from Zweigart this afternoon (from the sale several weeks ago) I have not opened the box yet since I was dealing with insurance companies all day....have I mentioned how much I hate dealing with them ;) Anyway will open it in the morning and start cutting and getting them out the door as soon as possible. Hope everyone is having a great week!

Just a quick update- The April SYHO charts just arrived so I will work on getting those out in the next day or two. Also coming up is the Online Needlework Show (April 15th-20th) and I am starting to get some new release information so I will be added those to the site as pre-orders within the next few days as well.

I also wanted to thank everyone for their comments regarding my accident- still dealing with the insurance company so not sure if we are waiting for repairs or if they are going to total the car and we will need to shop for a new one....hopefully we will know more in a few days but I can't wait for all of this insurance running around to be over! Hope everyone is enjoying some spring weather- we have had snow the past few days but today was nicer and it is supposed to be warmer for a few days at least!

Day did not go as planned....

Well my day did not go as planned....I was in a car accident. The good news is that we (my 2 kids where with me) are all OK....the car not so much :( Just another case of a 16 year old who just got his license and was in a "sports car" and thought he could out run anyone...including turning left onto an intersection others (myself) were driving through. Good news is that he has insurance (as of 2 days ago) and was at fault so I don't have to pay for the repairs...just need to deal with the mess of having them done. So now I am home and got to catch up on work tonight. Hope everyone else is having a better start to their holiday weekend!

No April Fools- $1 and $2 Charts

Just wanted to give you all a heads up first that I have loaded and will continue to load some of the closeout charts (from the closing LNS that I helped at the end of the year) Most are going to be $1 and $2 so if interested you can keep an eye out over the next day or two-

I can't believe that the kids are out for spring break and we have been getting snow :(
