There's been a lot going on around here lately. One thing is that I've accepted a new position in the library system I work for. It's a good change, and rather than being nervous about it, I'm actually looking forward to it. Imagine that, from someone who likes her routines.
My fellow local stitchers and I are sad because of another change - the closing of The Stitch Store. Terrie, the owner, is going through some changes in her own life and is in the process of closing this lovely gathering place for stitchers in the North Georgia area. I know that I speak for all of her customers when I say that she and her store will be missed. Our stitch group, Sisters in Stitches, had our last Stitch Day there last Saturday and gave Terrie a pretty nice sendoff. What a bittersweet day, full of our usual laughter, but with sadness mixed in. We wish Terrie the best of luck in all of her endeavors!
Because the store is closing, there was a sale going on. I stocked up on fabric, floss, charts and a few miscellaneous items. Can you say "substantial stash acquisition bordering on hoarding"? I do not have a photo of it because I'm embarrassed.
The title of this post, "Almost There", refers to my 95 followers. I am oh-so-slowly getting to one hundred. All I need are 5 more followers, then I'll post about the drawing for a bunch of cool stitch-related stuff! Keep checking in with my blog for this post!
