I've been posting Closeouts on my website this week (www.needledelights.com) 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!
