A new year... more posting?

I got off to such a good start last year... then completely stopped posting. Doesn't make for much of a sewing journal!

But anyway, I spent a good deal of time at the end of 2006/beginning of 2007 working on my website, Some building inventory (ie sewing snoods and hats) and a lot of tweaking the code, adding pictures, and discovering PayPal would actually do a shopping cart for me! So in went the little "add to cart" buttons... got them up on January 1st, had my very first online sale that very day (and she found me through Google, no less!) Talk about instant gratification!

So that's more or less what I've been up to. Yesterday I was in a pillow mood... made 2 nursing pillows and 5 neck pillows, but ran out of stuffing by the last. Today I have a nice new Big Box Of Stuffing. (Neck pillows are for the kids for longer car trips when they are likely to fall asleep, so I need a couple more.) I also have a list of UFOs I'd like to, well, finish. Still haven't called the electrician again, but the extension cord is actually being helpful for the moment.
