our happy dance.

Today was a red letter day.  After a year and a half of marketing attempts that didn't seem to be going anywhere, I got a big order from a big retailer that you might have heard of................................the

Vermont Country Store

I was ecstatic.  L was quickly counting how many Hip to Be Square we had made up, and how many she would have to get busy on.

Ay yi yi.

Sydney is doing quality control.


Well, maybe not so much.

I got a warp for mug mats on the Wolf Pup, and finished a couple of caterpillar rugs.
Then after a quick lunch, we got another big order.
Holy moly.
L said, " You asked for it."

Did I???

Oh, probably.  Probably I did.

Oh, and the dance????   That's what L calls spending time outside sorting loopers,  and making bags up with assorted colors.
But today was dance worthy.  
Loopers or not.

Congratulations!! Totally doing the happy dance for you :) Good for you!

Sydney looks a bit fatigued. I hope the brush with fame doesn't tucker her out.

I was in an antique shop today and they had an original looper set.... you know, to make the pot holders. I think I had one as a kid... anyway, it brought back memories. :-)

Congrats on the Vermont Store... Love them!

Congrats on the Vermont Country Store. I saw your kits at The Woolery's display at a fiber fair this summer and they are so vibrant. Hope this new avenue is a great success.
