I had a week off over Christmas, visiting with David's family in Ottawa and enjoying all the festivities of Christmas and New Year's Eve celebrations. Now a week later I already find myself engrossed in the hecticness of the shop. Not that I don't enjoy the store, I do - but I always feel like there is so much to do and so little time.
And this year I am already overwhelmed with all that still needs to be done before Gitta's Getaway and the NeedleWorkers MarketPlace. The NWMP is a stitching show for all stitchers.
see my March 2011 posts) . This year's project is a Spring Sampler.
The border will be made available to everyone as they enter the show and then it is up to you to visit each designer and collect their free chart portion of the collaboration sampler. As a little sneek peek for this year's Collaboration Project, here is the layout of the sampler and the spots designated to each designer so far. There are still 2 designers missing, Northern Pine Designs and Sew Fancy. This year will be an awesome show with 13 wonderful designers exhibiting, teaching, and passing on their love and knowledge of needlearts.
Monika, one of Gitta's gang, is stitching the model to display at the Market. I am almost done designing mine. I also still have to complete my workshop for the show and the exclusive workshop that will be offered to Gitta's Getaway attendees.
All this plus much more has to be done in the next 3 months.
It will be a frantic 3 months, but all will be done.
