I know many
of you know this already, as I had discussed this with you as I was deciding
what path to take over these next couple of months, but I am regretfully
withdrawling as a participating shop from the August Show Me Annual Safari Shop
Hop, as well as The Country Shop Hop that I do in October with the shops down by
the Lake area.
As not to start any rumors, the shop is NOT CLOSING and
doing fine, but I have found that over these last couple of months and during

myself and my mom and parents-in-law, etc. I find myself in the "middle life

If only there was a way to squeeze more hours into a day, then we could do

Until then, With my Needle in Hand, I'll just Keep Stitchin"
