eye am not too crazy about tomorrow

Okay, so tomorrow morning I have to be at the eye doctor for tests from some retina doctors from Memphis. Seems I may have to have some laser surgery to weld the retina. Sounds like construction to me. But if it saves my eyesight, I'm all for it. Everything I do depends on my sight. I've often wondered about what I'd do if anything ever happened to my sight. I would miss seeing the faces of my children and grandchildren the most. I think everything will be okay, and it's really not in my hands anyway. So, anybody out there who reads this - please pray for those doctors - I want them to have steady hands.

Back to sewing for a while before bed. Working on the dresses for the shop. I will post some pics as soon as I am finished with them. Then on to the next project.

I have got to get back to the baby quilt I'm doing for a baby girl. It is hand embroidered on each block, using vintage transfers. I made one for a lady's daughter and now that daughter is having another girl, and she wants another one. I just found out today the sex of the baby. It's not due until June, so I have plenty of time. I have already started on the embroidery, in hopes that it would be a girl. I have already done one for a boy, so I'll probably put it into the shop to sell.
Night, Night.

superbowl sunday

Well, today is SuperBowl, and I fixed my chili for us to eat on. Husband is watching the tv and I'm going to sew for a while. I've got some ideas for projects for our shop, and I want to get started.
Tomorrow Lori and I have an appointment with one of our sales rep for ordering fall and winter clothing. We are trying to keep our ordering down this year, but it is so hard to judge what going to transpire with the economy and the new ruling from CPSIA. But we will plug through and make it another year. This year we will be opened 4 years. I just can't believe we have had our little boutique that long.
Signing off for now - the sewing machine calls.
