Where Women Create...and other stuff too

Have you seen the book, "Where Women Create"? It's very cool. I so need it. My workroom is in the worst shape of it's life. It's quite sad, actually. I try, honestly I do. It just never works for long. BUT, it's the next room in the house to be renovated and hopefully will be done before Christmas. There is lots to do: First the entire room has to be emptied. Oh my. Then the old carpet has to be ripped up. Then Art has to cut into the floor to insulate the pipes under the floor. It's just a crawl space under there, not a basement. Then, a new (old) floor will be put down, the walls will be insulated and rebuilt and painted. And, we need to put in a new heating system for my workroom and the room above it. It's FREEZING in here in the winter. Once we do that, we'll put in new office furniture, and I can get organized. YAY! I'll keep you posted.



On to a more fun subject....jewelry of course! I started a new piece at midnight last night, but didn't finish it. Here's a preview:

On the sampler front, I framed a new piece yesterday so I could get my ad into the Needlework Retailer on time. I finished designing another new piece and will overnight the chart, linen and silk to The Attic in Mesa, AZ today. Once there, a wonderful person will stitch it for me and get it to Valley House Primitives (www.valleyhouseprimitives.com) for framing. Thank you, thank you Jean Lea and Joy and Janet at Valley House Primitives!
I STILL haven't packed up my trunk show. That will be the first thing (well, the next thing) I do this morning. Then it's off to the UPS and the post office. Then I get to finish my new necklace. Then....we'll see!
Have a good one!

Welcome to blogging Kathy! Bet you'll have many readers once they find you. It's great to see all your photos and hear news of new designs. Trunk shows take so long to prepare for, but it is worth it to see all the models in person.
