Salem, my color consultant, is as excited as I am

with piles of of enticing embroidery floss lying here and there.

I have taken on a business offer with my embroidery that I cannot refuse. I am now selling my embroidered items in an antique/consignment gallery in Dallas, that a friend of mine operates.

This coming month I will be offering hand towels with vintage designs on them. After that, I will probably do a few holiday designs. I am looking forward to see how this venture goes!

Beautiful guest towels. It was good to hear from you. We are enjoying the summer with house projects and some RVing.

Yes Ma'am - my followers list does disappear from time to time. Makes me mad when this thing doesn't work properly!!!

Best of luck with your new venture with your stitching! You SHOULD be having things for sale!
