Today was a great day at It's A Stitch in Humble, Texas.

Many new products are coming in daily. It really is exciting to see what I order actually come through the back door by way of Fed-X, UPS, USPS and sometimes even DHL! Oh and I don't want to forget Office Depot.

Our oldest daughter (Angi) and her hubby (Jason) came by night before last. It was a very nice "drop by" visit. They were out and about and just dropped in. It is always good to see them. The visit was short but meaningful. I look forward to seeing them every chance I get.

Angi is a flight attendant with a corporate company and Jason is in the oil industry. We, Rick & I, always tease them that when we are "REALLY old" they will be set to "take care of us". Needless to say that goes over big.

I am working on a couple ideas for future product; not only for my Etsy shop but also for a pattern company called Black Cat Creation here in Texas. If you'd like to see their web site just go to Their patterns are just out of this world.

It's A Stitch carries most all their patterns. Judy Reynolds and Amy Cotham are "BLACK CAT CREATIONS" and they have several designers. Both Judy and Amy used to work for It's A Stitch and so did or do most of their designers. (Long sentence I know.)

My ideas will have to remain "top secret" for now...but don't be surprised if you see my name on a pattern soon. Even if Black Cat Creations doesn't pick my pattern up for their line I will self publish and you will find it in my Etsy shop.

Going to work on my projects now. Will keep you posted.

You can see my new items here.

All went well over the spite of the "dreaded lady" who put out our hot dog roasting fire! Yes, and she put it out BEFORE our hot dogs were ready....grrrrr!

Not all was lost however, we caught lots and lots of catfish...lost a few (one really big one...HONEST).

BUT then on Saturday we went to the ER because L.C. got gourd by a catfish fin. He got 4 stitches and a tetanus shot. All was not lost though. We kept on a fishin'. The ER doctor gave him gloves and told him not to get the hand wet. L.C. was such a trooper. He kept right on fishing.

Janace and I fished and "caught" a real bad sun burn. LOL

Tuesday was back to work as usual. It seemed like I guess today, Wed., feels like Tuesday (except it is pay day and we always get paid every other Wed.). Guess by Friday it will feel like Thursday and I'll be surprised that I get the next day off.

Today at It's A Stitch was a great day. Ordering product as usual and getting new job assignments. Please visit our store at you will be so happy you did.
We have many new products, pre-orderable books, fabrics, etc.

While you're on line don't forget to go to my Etsy store also. You can find me at I've added new product since Monday and plan to even more product before the week is out.

Have a very blessed day. And when you pray please pray for our friend Maura. She is 21 years old and has Hodgkin's lymphoma . While MD Anderson removed the original tumor (Toby by name) he now has offspring. You can read all about it on Maura's blog spot at

THANK YOU for taking your time to read this blog and for praying for Maura and her family.

This is, Wednesday, May 21, 2008.

Today I have added new product to my on line store at

Later, I will go to work at It's A Stitch, the most wonderful quilt store in the greater Houston, Texas area. See our on line store at You won't be disappointed.

After work I'm having dinner with friends at one of our local restaurants to discuss business ideas! There are 4 of us and 3 have our own on line businesses. You can find Dawn at and Michelle at

Dawn sells vintage and craft supplies. Michelle makes her own purse designs. Both their shops are FABULOUS!

As for me, I am destashing my sewing room and selling things that I have learned to live without. I make yo yo supplies, some jewelry, well.........let's just say I "do a lot of stuff".

Hope you all have a wonderful day.
"Today is the day that The Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Until later. Susan
