Wow, I am in complete shock right now and feeling very blessed. As March winds to a close I am happy to announce that we are winding down not only our best quarter in sales, but also our best quarter in website views. I can't believe the progress that Stitch Silly has suddenly made, and I couldn't have done it without you, my loyal readers and customers so thank you!
Because of the great successes, I am actually moving up my planned fabric order, so I should have some new burp cloths and receiving blankets soon. And thanks to your feedback last week I was able to choose at least a chevron blanket, the blue one (sorry Gina!). I think for now I am going to hold off on the rag quilt, but it is something that I will keep in mind as I fabric search!
While I wait for my new fabric to come in, I'm giving my sewing machine a bit of a break and working on some crocheting, with plarn of course! Especially with a long road trip ahead of us for Easter. I am almost done with the bottom of the current bag I am crocheting so with the trip, I hope to be able to start working up the sides and make some interesting progress. Not near the kind of progress my mom has made of late.
She has temporarily retired (long story and she's a bit crazy - in a good way) and spent the last 5 weeks in Florida visiting family and friends. My parents had a great time. I laugh because they just arrived home this past weekend only to be hit with 8 inches of snow. In her down time in the car and visiting she kept her hands busy. She crocheted, I believe 3 if not 4, bags while she was down there to give as gifts to everyone she encountered. There is no way I can keep up with her speed, but I will at least try this weekend.
I'll be sure to report back next week, until then, have a Happy East and wonderful Passover!
