Blog Awards and Big Announcement

My dear friend Von nominated me for a blog award yesterday...thank you very much!!! But I am in a bit of a quandry...all the blogs I read that have to do with stitching seem to have already been nominated and received at least one award this week! I don't think I could nominate 5 new people without spending a bunch of time online trying to find 5 new blogs, and then I would sort of defeat the purpose of the award, since these would be brand new to me blogs. So, I will just say, thank you again, Von, and congratulations to all this weeks winners! You all, and your stitching, inspire me daily!!!!

This has been a busy week taking care of the family, working my full time job and trying to get ready to launch my design company. With the help of my daughters, actually at their insistence and urging, we will soon be unveiling Lacey Thread Designs. I am busy working on the computer perfecting the first four designs, and they are busy stitching models for the photographs, and we are all excited to see this dream become reality. This venture will concentrate the first year on giving them some spending money as they stay home with their babies, and work for Lacey Thread. If it weren't for that need in their lives, I doubt if I would be working so hard to do this now. But I have heard from other trusted people in my life that now is the time to get this business going. I will be starting a separate blog and web page here soon, so you won't have to wade through all the "shop talk" unless you want to. I was little hesitant to even mention this until it was all ready for the "Grand Opening" but I think it may be fun to share some of the excitement with you all as we progress.

So stay tuned, exciting things will be happening around here soon!!!!
