« Part 1648: NOW I Can Call it Finished! Part 1649 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 1650: Monday's Blog - Take 2 »

Yesterday was another busy day. I had so many parcels to package up and ship out that it took me most of the day to get everything done. I was fortunate to get to the post office by 4pm, as they closed at 5 and it took them nearly an hour just to process all the parcels. It was a good day. 



I am really pleased at the response to my little pumpkin surface. (SLDPK127 on my site)



Talk about an unexpected response! I have another fairly large batch to cut again over the weekend as well. It is all good and exciting for me! 



As you can imagine, that hasn't left me a lot of time for new designs. But believe me – I am not complaining. I really enjoyed cutting them. As I cut each piece, I imagine the 'heirloom' that it will turn into. That is kind of fun. :) 



I have a couple of things that I am going to work on over the weekend. Some are personal and some are work related. I will certainly blog about them when I am ready.



Until then, I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Enjoy these beautiful autumn days to the fullest, as they will be gone with the blink of an eye. 



Happy Friday to you all!

Hi, Russell:

I am planning away at some new embroidery patterns actually. I had all those deadlines to meet in September/October and am now just getting to get my head above water with them. I LONG to use my beautiful silk ribbon and I miss not having a project on the go. I have some ideas for projects that I want to do shortly so I will be switching to that soon.

My recent Christmas trinket boxes have sold beautifully and I have ideas for more so I need to get on them quickly while there is interest.

Oh – and I need to paint a couple of things as well for some exchanges I signed up for . . .

LOL! I am glad you miss the needlework. I was unsure how the folks here would receive it. I am glad you like it. :)

Thanks for stoopping by! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Sheila

Thank you very kindly, Norman. :) This was not my design – just the surface. Sometimes collaborations bring stuff up another step. ;)

Have a great Sunday! Sheila
