Time to catch up!

Phew...what a Valentine's weekend! It was fun but exhausting! Especially my, 40 hour day that started at 5:30am on Sunday morning and ended on Monday at 9:30pm. I did catch a few catnaps when I went home Sunday evening to put the boys to bed; Monday morning when I came home to wake up the boys & get them ready for school and later on Monday after I picked them up from school. Crazy, I know! But very happy with the way Valentine's was handled in our store and the way that our employees helped to get everything produced and delivered. Sure, there are always things that store owners can do better and there are alway customers who aren't satisfied...but after hearing that some of the other franchise stores weren't able to make all their deliveries on Valentine's day - I feel very good that we did.

Now, back to reality and "routine".

Catching up on my blog reading I found out that Lori received the ornament I made her for the Ornament Swap, so now I can show you what I stitched:
"Snow Wishes" by The Victoria Sampler
Designed by Cathy Jean
Just CrossStitch 2009 Special Christmas Issue 
Stitched on fabric from my stash (which didn't have the count information on it) and substituting thread (but keeping true to the colors called for). It was a fun project to stitch and I was so glad to hear that Lori received it! Now it is time to figure out what ornament I will be stitching & finishing for the March recipient...mmmm, time to pull out all the ornament specials again :)

Six days until the repairman to return to fix the washer. We have received all 3 boxes of parts to replace the bad ones. We are making due with washing the clothes through other means, but it is a hassel - lugging the dirty clothes to the car...but it has to be done. Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well next Tuesday and we will have a working clothes washer :)

That is about it for now...just catching up as well as getting ready to leave for Detroit, MI with Robert & his hockey team for a tournament during President's weekend. So, until next time...

Take care and remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!
