What amazing and supportive comments I have had from you dear friends this week. It is quite obvious I am not alone in dealing with rude customers and trying to make a go of it in this tough economy. Thank you all for your thoughts and the time it took you to respond to me. I appreciate you all more than you can know.
My best girls (my sisters and daughter) are having a quilting retreat this weekend! WOO HOO!!! I have been dreaming of this for the past couple of weeks. We will drive up to Andrea's in Granite Bay, where it is 100 degrees (instead of 66 degrees where I live) and set up our sewing machines and sew up a storm for almost three entire days. Woo hoo again! We can wear sleeveless tops and not worry about our flabby arms. We can eat whatever we want and not feel guilty. We can say anything, knowing our audience will love us no matter what.
I SO need a break. From financial issues, from crazy customers, from the daily grind. A wonderful three days spent with the people I love the most. We will set up our quilting studio in Andrea's kitchen, and sip watermelon margaritas and talk about better days. It will be fabulous.
So, what shall I work on? Here's what I am thinking.
And my latest new project, in conjunction with Cheryl at Gran's Place, BIRDSEYE.
What to do? What to do? So many choices, so little time. OK! I am off to pack the car~
