Let's Celebrate!

It's really time to celebrate.  Stitch Silly is turning 2!  I can't believe that I've been at this for 2 years now.  It really has been a great journey so far.  Thank you all for putting up with my ramblings!  What's next for Stitch Silly you ask?

Well, for one you may notice, Stitch Silly has a new look.  We finally were able to get a decent logo pulled together.  I'd love to hear your feedback on the new logo.

Other than the new logo I'm hoping to push out a few new projects this year.  I know what my local customers are looking for, but I'm very interested to understanding what you my internet readers would be interested in seeing as either a product or a new topic to discuss. 

What keeps you coming back, the business topics, tips and tricks, new product ideas, or something different all together?  Bring it on, I want to keep you engaged and unless you tell me what you want, you will continue getting my brain dumps as I see fit.

Crazy Times

From Hollie & Harrie
Whoa, what a crazy few weeks!  We had some unexpected craziness at our home that has really sucked me away from work.  We are slowly getting back on track, so I am also slowing getting back to blogging, sewing, and crocheting.  I finally broke open my new fabric purchase.  Initially I was disappointed when I looked at the aqua I selected to compliment my chevron fabric.  Of course as luck would have it, the two colors are just off enough that it was bothering me.  I almost returned it, but then quickly realized wait this isn't going to be a solid piece of fabric.  I've started laying out the fabric to start sewing it, part of the joy of having the lines already drawn out for you.  Fingers crossed this blanket will not take me as long as the previous one.

While I'm busy getting back on my feet, here are a few great finds that I recently found on Pinterest.  This was such a great idea to keep out of the sun at the beach this summer.  I don't think we are going to be making a beach trip this summer, but I will be looking into this as an option next summer when we head to the beach. 

Another great project I found that I think will be great to make sometime in the future are these giant floor pillows I saw over at ovenlovinblog. It's such a great idea of a kids reading nook as mine get older. Her description is great that people with any ability should be able to actually pull it together.  Be sure to stop over to see her description.

Spring Cleaning

My lastest fabric arrived!  I'm super excited to get started with me new projects.  One of the fabrics I picked out was sold out by the time they went to cut mine so I will eventually need to make another order for that one, but my current fabric should entertain me for a while.  At least we can hope!

This weekend my community is having their bi-annual community yard sale.  That has been taking up most of my time this week preparing.  I've been going through baby cloths that are going to sold off.  It's a sad day, but it will be nice to clear up some room in the house, slowly but surely.  It feels good to have some spring cleaning in the house, even if it means sewing is put aside for now. 

This is the first time I'm participating in my community yard sale so it should be a fun experience.  Hopefully the kids corporate!  Why am I bringing up the community yard sale you ask?  Well other than preparing for it occupying my time, I'm also looking at it as a marketing/sales avenue.  As part of my wares that I am putting out for sale, I am also going to put out a small sampling of some of my current inventory for people to see.  Perhaps I'll get a sale or two out of the deal.  You never know unless you try!

One other part of spring cleaning I've been working on.  As you've probably noticed, there have been some changes to the website recently.  I'm in the process of reworking a few things on the site and behind the scenes.  One of them being the Stitch Silly logo.  I had a great idea that hasn't really panned out to what I had envisioned so I'm now working on a plan B.  We'll see how this iteration goes! 

I'm curious, am I the only one caught up in the spring cleaning bug or are there others of you out there too getting miscellaneous things in order that you were putting off doing in the cold winter months.
