Ok sorry about that little tantrum.
Its Thursday and I have gotten alot done. I will be going around town this weekend posting fliers to promote the shop. Coffee shops, library, senior center (do seniors use computers) whole foods and any other place I can think of that are reputable and have a community bulliten board.
I splurged tonight to celebrate our first sale (thanks hollylynn, there is a little something special in there too!). and got a large super veggi pizza. Veggies cheese and bread, life is good.
Like they say you always remember your first, and I cant thank you enough. I think were doing a little better every day. We have people that have marked us as a favorite and Alice's dragon bag and one necklace are favorites as well. The traffic will come and with it will be sales. I told my parents and they humored me, oh great job honey. Bite me! I am proud of myself damnit. This gives me more and more confidence that one day I will be able to have my own brick and mortar quilt shop. One day. In the meantime I am using this experience to learn all I can. I did go back to quilting Tuesday, i missed and my sewing machine must have been pissed at me for leaving her for the new multi stitch machine. She took 30 min to get up and going. But after that it was like old times. Now, I have 5 that need to be done by x-mas. But good thing is I have enough headbands made to keep the site updated. Therapy for dummy's just sew something.

I'm hella proud of you! You'll get that quilt shop, and I'll live in it. "Oh, her? Never mind her. She just burrows under the fabric she likes. She's had all her shots and is tame. Just think of her as a big cat, and you'll be fine."

And you made me hungry with that post, dammit.
