Coffee Please...

I stayed up until 1 am last night working, and my girls got me up at 6:45.  Right now I don't think there is enough coffee in the world to wake me up.  It's the big push right now to finish up the Fall line to send to my photographers.  I got 24, yes, 24 bolts of fabric in yesterday!  Some amazing new prints from Heather Bailey and a few others.  WAIT until you see what I did with them! 

My mother-in-law sews for me, and she came by to pick up something, so I snatched her to sew some samples for me.  I cut, while she sewed.  Music blaring.  Good times.  Memories we will have forever.  I am very thankful to have her working with me.  She goes above and beyond all the time.  Heck, she even let me snap her pic so I could post it on my blog.  What a good sport!

And here she is working away.  She actually helped teach me learn to sew when I started out.  She always says to me now, and all you wanted to do was learn to sew, now look at you.

So far, we have fabulous Trunk Keepers in Wisconsin, Indiana, Kansas, California, and Missouri.  Some of the best woman around!  We still have room for a few more.

Back to work!  One day it will get easier, right, lol.


  1. you are so lucky to have a MIL like yours! Enjoy every minute together ;)

  2. ohhh...that would be like candy in a candy shoppe to have 24 gorgeous bolts arriving on my doorstep...I bet it is euphoric...for a second...then you probably realize all the work...

    Looks like fun!
