Happy New Year!
(scroll down to read about my Lil Sis)
May 2009 bring you health, wealth and happiness! I especially wish you many hours of enjoyment with your needle and thread.
I'm very excited about 2009 because I'm making much needed changes in my corner of the world. I've been self employed for 6 years and in 2008 the demands of my time with this business became beyond stressful. I have decided to close my business. I, also have a part time job and plan to continue working two days a week for awhile until I decide what the next chapter in my life will be. This decision was not an easy one for my sweet and supportive hubby and I to make but it's the right decision for us. I'm really looking forward to enjoying a much needed respite. I especially looking forward to many, many hours with my needle and thread. :-)
My Lil Sis :-)
I received the sweetest package from my Lil Sister, Tammy! You may have noticed in comments that Tammy and I leave for each other that we refer to each other as Lil Sis and Big Sis. In fact, I've gotten a couple of e-mails in the past asking whether or not Tammy and I are really sisters. LOL No, we're not sisters in the true sense of the word but if I could pick a little sister it would be Tammy!
Let me share the "Sister" story! Last January I called The Country Loft in California to sign up for the Primitive Four Seasons BOM and I got to speak to Joanne (aka JAM - designer of the patterns). I told her that Tammy had told me about the BOM and she said that Tammy had just been there. So, later in the day I sent Tammy an e-mail and asked her what she was doing at the Country Loft. LOL She responded with "How did you know I was at the Country Loft today?" I told her that she needed to be careful because Big Brother is always watching - LOL - she said she knew that but in her case it was "Big Sister" (Me). And, we became Lil Sis, Tammy and Big Sis, Darlene. I hope that one day I will have an opportunity to travel to Southern California and give my Lil Sis, Tammy a real hug - she doesn't know how much I adore her. :-) Please don't tell her - she'll be very difficult to live with. LOL
So, here's a picture of the treasures and goodies that my Lil Sis, Tammy sent to me. I love everything and will enjoy everything for years to come!
Tammy, thank you so much for the wonderful package.
Thank you for stopping by to visit - please come again because you know I love it when you do!
