Feeling good


So I popped into Handmade Heaven yesterday to drop off this gorgeous newly made quilt and pay my monthly rent. When I walked in there were quite a few people in the shop and I noticed several looking at and touching my vintage chenille goodies. I walked past and casually listened in to their conversation, and I am so glad I did! They were saying how gorgeous my quilts were, and how beautiful the chenille was, and how well priced they were, and it made me feel really good. Something I think I have needed for a while. There were other ladies admiring my bunnies and then let me know how much they love them and had come to the store just to see them. I have had a few things brewing in the back of my mind and now I think maybe it's time to get my butt into gear and get going with it. Hopefully if you pop back next week I may just have a few little announcements to make. Thank you for the boost in my self confidence ladies!

You know, it wasn't just good timing eitherSelina. I'm sure Liesa will tell you the same thing, but anytime I'm working in the shop there are always people doing exactly as you described when they get to your things. Glad you got to hear it for yourself. : ) Kim
