Tuesday Tidbits...

Today's post is a little all over the place...kind of like me this week...as usual, I have about a hundred irons in the fire (and I am headed to Dallas for the Komen 3-Day on Thursday). I have been working on Etsy projects round the clock, trying to fill up my shop for the holidays. Yesterday and today, my focus has been on my large zippered project bags - I have a lot of requests for these and thought I would try to stock up again - so right now, there are a handful in the shop, ready for purchase. At the current moment, my embroidery machine is humming along, doing a custom order for ten of my freestanding lace teapot ornaments...and my cutting table is filled with piles of various items ready for assembly line sewing. My studio truly looks like a disaster...so add cleaning to my long list for tomorrow.

...and of course, Schatzi and I did another 7+ mile walk this afternoon...again, mostly off leash...and I snapped this photo of her with the lake in the background...

....oh, and remember this photo, I shared a while back??..it is the photo I entered in the PetSmart Bandana Blitz Instagram contest...and guess what??....Simba and Schatzi actually won a runner-up prize...a free grooming! I was hoping for two free grooming sessions, one for each (and my prize notification message sounded that way), but when my prize arrived it was only one...but I am definitely not complaining - I am thrilled they received runner-up honors with well over 5,000 entries!

I also must share this lovely, heartfelt gift I received from a friend in California - a beautiful cross stitched pincushion commemorating my Komen 3-Day 60-mile journey I am taking this coming weekend. I was very touched to receive such a treasure and I can definitely use an angel watching over me right now! Thank you so much Kate - I will treasure this special keepsake...

I am hoping to be back tomorrow with one more post before I fly off to Dallas to meet my Twinkle Toes teammates to embark on our yearly Komen 3-Day walk...I have so much to be thankful for this year and I am truly overwhelmed by all the love and support....


  1. Congratulations to Simba and Schatzi on their being selected! I really like that picture of the two of them. Good going, Miss Schatzi, on more off-leash walking. Your angel gift is lovely.
    You are in my thoughts as you get ready to head to Texas.


  2. Lovely bag, love the doggie pictures, the angel is adorable.
