Sew Busy

Wow! Where does the time go? Country Mouse and I have been sew so busy these last few weeks. And I'm going to be honest, it hasn't all been fun, we've been stressy and even a bit neglectful to our furbabies (they don't understand why we have to sew all day!). But on the other hand, we are thrilled and very excited about the things we are working on! I wish I could tell you everything, but I was asked not to reveal all of the details yet. So I must honor that and only tell you what I think won't get us into any trouble. Because being in trouble would just put me over the edge right now.

So here's the deal: We've been sewing items for a booth at the Spring Quilt Market! We are working with a fabric company to showcase one of their new fabric lines and all I can say is that is will be perfect for your sewing room. And to go along with this, we will be debuting our first set of printed patterns! More details to follow soon.

And another exciting event that we will be a part of: The Creative Connection Event. It will be held September 16, 17, and 18 in Minneapolis. Go check out all of the fantastic panelists and speakers (Amy Butler will be there!). We hope to see you there!

Needless to say, there is a never ending to-do list and not enough hours in our day. And I'm not sure that we know the meaning of sewing/life/balance. Oh and one of my coworkers at my office day job told me I looked tired today. What is the best response to that: a) thank you b) you wouldn't understand or c) best to say nothing at all? I've never been quite sure how to respond to that one! 

I have family coming this weekend so I am trying to wrap up a few projects so I can hopefully relax and enjoy their company. Maybe even spend sometime outside of the house, we are supposed to have sunshine and highs in the 70s! I hope Spring has arrived early for you as well!


  1. Jamie, I'm so excited for you and your mom! Can't wait to see/hear all the details.

    To the person who mentioned you look tired... Did you ask them if they knew how to sew? Cause then they could come help you! :)

  2. Thanks Whitney, that's a good one! I'll have to ask next time, I'm sure I'm not going to look rested anytime soon :)

  3. As to the tired comment, I would maybe say..."Oh I'm okay, really. ? I never knew how to respond to that either...I always look tired no matter how much sleep I get..dark circles under my eyes at 26 blah! but I've had them my whole life so...


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment, we are so happy you stopped by :)
