Closeout Chaos

I’ve been posting Closeouts on my website this week ( and have created organized chaos in my living room, dining room, and kitchen. Mass amounts of inventory are leaving my house tomorrow! I’m exhausted & happy…the storage unit is getting cleared out. See the little white thing on the rug in the middle of the photo? It’s one of the cat toys – the babies are a little disturbed that I’m taking up their running room and one of them abandoned the mouse.

This is just one pile of orders waiting to be finalized – guess what I’ll be doing this weekend?!

I have a kitchen counter and stove somewhere in this photo – good thing I didn’t have to cook tonight – Friday is always dinner out with friends!
And yet, I did take a few minutes to stitch this week. I’m working on a new Color Delights for Baltimore (I hope) – it’ll either be Cardinal or Candy Cane. Here’s my progress – it was somewhat dismaying when I realized I had drawn my own outlines wrong. I left out a whole section and miscounted and had to stitch beyond the line! Chalk it up to being tired!
Last week I did finish the Double Delights design I showed you – here’s a little more of it. I’m not sure what month’s releaseit will be but I’m calling it Charbleu (chartreuse & blue) – I really like these colors. Somewhere I have a piece I stitched in a Tony Minieri class using a very similar colorway – I’ll have to find it and show it to you sometime!

    I placed an order through "Contact" on your website – is that the wasy to do it? Thanks!

    Yes, the orders are coming into my mailbox. If you'll tell me your name, I'll check to be sure I have it. Don't be worried if you haven't heard from me yet. I'm still working my way through the orders in the order they came in!

    Kathy, clearly the cardinal/candy cane piece wants to be bigger! Maybe you should indulge it. 🙂
