Christmas is Busy Enough...

Orders are flying out the door...and I'm on track, thankfully...tho' I had hoped to be ahead of schedule...This weekend was big bags - Sadies and this Grand Mera:
Oddly enough, I don't think there's such a stretch from the Peace Flowers Sadie yesterday to this fun-filled print here today, do you? (And the pockets are lined with the wildest bright avocado green! (to match the gal on the front of the bag)

But as if working on Nana Sadie Rose isn't enough, I'm trying to put together an etsy store of ready-made items. My website doesn't address that, and I'd like to be able to have things you can see and purchase right away. Without taking a crash course in HTML coding, of course! I'll make a big announcement as soon as I go live with a few items...I promise!

In addition to work (my independent auditors left on Thursday - Whoohoo!), and my business, I've been trying hard to winterize my townhouse - the wind gets in a bit too much, and with the electric rates going up, I have to try to keep things contained (like the heat!)...

So today, Sis-in-law helped me get two rooms of thermal drapes put up. We did the front rooms when I first moved in...but those have only thin cotton tab-tops...I'll be buying thermal liners for them over time (gee they're pricey!). The four windows of thermals weren't inexpensive either. But there is so much to be said for knowing this is going to make a difference for years to come (at least I hope they do!).
This window is upstairs in the office where you've often seen the rug with the sage, burgundy, tan, navy, and forest green squares with a black border all around. The Meezer loves that rug. Well, till I got the curtains up, I hadn't realized that the jacquard in the fabric was a the square on square motif continues!

I even managed a tiny bit of Christmas shopping today, running to KMart for curtain rods and hooks, I ran through the little boy department and picked up a few warm things for three grandsons...

We're supposed to be 15 degrees tonight!! BRRRRRR.....!

Stay warm wherever you are...and have a great week!

It's OK to be square. Don't let 'em tell you otherwise. :-)

That's a good plan for Etsy. Catch knitters while there are in impulsive mode!

The best check for cold/warm spots is to observe your cats. We once discovered that a "cold air return" was hooked up wrong and putting out heated air. It was the cat's favorite spot to sit.

I love both this bag and the hippie bag! And I love the idea of an etsy store :) I can't wait to see it when it goes up! :)

The thermal curtains are a great idea! You'll have to let us know how they work! I have been thinking about getting some since our apartment's windows are pretty drafty (not to mention the cats playing in the blinds every morning to wake me up!)

The Etsy idea sounds like a great one! For folks like me who have a HARD time choosing fabric, a "pret a porter" selection is a wonderful thing. Good luck with that and I, too, can't wait to see it.

Your new drapes are excellent looking, as is that Mera bag. :)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
