Making lots of pillowcase dresses for the shop. I don't know if I've already mentioned it, but we moved our shop one last time. The next move I make will be to heaven. But we are in a much nicer location, one that is more accessible to the customer, and there are several boutiques in the shopping center with us. It has improved our walk-in traffic tremendously. We are down in sales this month - as all shops are right now. I expect to see an upward trend by March and even better in April. We are already getting Spring product in and I love it. Cold is not for me. To the left is a picture of the outside at Christmas.
Here are some pictures from Christmas. The picture to the left are my 5 granddaughters. Aren't they pretty? I could just squeeze them, they're so cute.
And to the right in the 1st picture is Angela, Nicole and Lori. The other is my grandson, Chase. He is so cute, isn't he?
Hubby is back from giving blood. He looks the same, so I guess he didn't give too much. He's already gotten his 3 gallon pin. Three gallons of blood! Think about that.
I made a baby quilt before Christmas and sold it to a family for their daughter. It had 9 blocks in it, all hand embroidered with vintage children's designs. I enjoyed doing it so much. I have one ready to put together for a boy and I am working on another girl one. If noone wants to buy them, it's okay with me. I'll just save them for a great-grandchild someday. Yes, I plan on being around to see them. I have to live quite a long time, as I have so many things to accomplish.
I'm going back to my sewing, now. Happy January and here's hoping Spring gets here very soon.
