This has been such a productive week, although I didn't finish the new items I thought I would (i'm so close!), I was still able to accomplish 90% of my to-do list. Sew awesome! It feels great to get back on track.
Here's a snapshot of my week... I'm ready to enjoy the weekend and I hope you are, too!

I posted this fun Subway Art Mug Rug tutorial:
It's great to plan ahead, even if it's just a snapshot of the year to come. This week I sat down with my 2013 calendar to look at events I'd like to attend. SoChick! is going to be busy!
Some TLC was needed on my machine.... yuck! This is a weekly occurrence, cleaning the bobbin area of lint, but it's never this bad... must be from the cotton thread I was quilting with.
I asked Andrea, of Bubblewrapp'd, if she could do a custom order for me... I know she's a super busy gal, but I love her blocks and figured it was worth a shot. To my delight, she was happy to work on my custom order: Shop signs. One large one for my Vendor Booths, and one for my space at a local Cake Shop, Ali Smith Cake Designs.
I was so excited when I came home to find my package waiting for me. (Side note: Our mail lady left two tiny milkbone dog treats on the box for our pups... so sweet.) I was blown away when I opened the box to reveal my beautiful new signs!!
I asked Andrea if she could make them look like my business card (sitting atop the small block in the picture)... And, wow, what an awesome job she did! The sides of the blocks are painted turquoise to match my branding and she even added nice holes in the back so that I can hang the large sign, Without risking destroying it by trying to add my own holes... she didn't say this, but I'm glad if she thought it! *wink*
I also had super cooperative little chickies on Friday and was able to get six new bags started, should have these babies in the Shop next week (also you can find a selection of them at Ali Smith Cake Design's Ghent Plaza location, in New Bern, NC, if you're local.)
Finally, rainy days in the house lead to being goofy... this is a perfect example of the Sewing Geek that I am:
