A Stitch Just in Time...

... Saved my mind.

It's been another hectic week, but busy for good reasons.

The day after my shop was featured in a Storque article, I made it to the home page of etsy!

Sales were unreal (for me anyway, maybe it's normal for other etsy sellers!) and I could not keep up with relisting and packing items for sale quick enough.

I hope everyone's package contains what they bought!

That and kids and life and the Corder Picnic carnival meant that I went to bed late every night and was up early every morning.

I still have to bake two pies for the Corder Picnic pie stand.

And yet, when I picked up Patty's stitchery today to add my last few stitches to it, the stress of the week went away,
for a few minutes.
I hadn't drawn anything out, but just made up the design as I went, using stitches I hadn't tried since I was 13 or 14 when I did my first embroidery project (a kit).
I surprised even myself.
I think Patty will like it.
Today it mails to Linda.
