Stitching Update

This is what my Blackwork Winter Sampler by Tam's Creations looks like as of April 6, 2009. I am now finished with 3 out of 5 pages. I am getting closer to finishing it and am still loving every stitch.

I have started TW's Wedding Sampler. This is what I have done so far (as of April 9, 2009). It is not a lot and I have already made a mistake, which I will remove tomorrow. I would have some of the satin stitches put in but I don't have the rayon floss it calls for. I am doing this on Painted Champagne Cocktail 28ct Jobelen by Enchanted Fabrics using DMC cotton and rayon flosses. It will have both 2 over 2 and 1 over 1 areas. I hope to stitch on this at least 2 hours every day.
I had to drive to Savannah Georgia to pick up my daughter. She was on her way home after spending a few weeks with friends in Virginia. Sadly she missed one of her buses and the next one wouldn't be there for 4 hours or so. So Stephanie and I went to get her. It wasn't too bad of a drive and it didn't hurt my back as much as I thought it would. We had a lot of fun on the drive back, singing along to music, cracking jokes with each other, laughing, and just enjoying each other's company.
On the way up there Stephanie and I discussed the possibility of opening a needlework store here in town. I think it would have a decent chance of doing pretty well since the closest needlework store to our town is over an hour away to the west and over 2 hours to the east. So tomorrow I will be searching for information on market research and seeing if I can't find that article that discusses small business loans from the state and/or county that I read a while back. We will of course have a web site as well as a physical store. Here is hoping that this will work well! I am very excited by the idea!
