Two Months??? Really?!?!?!?!!?

Has it really been two months since I posted? Wow...where oh where did the summer go? It seriously has gone so fast, I cannot ever remember a summer going this fast.
Let's back up a little bit. When I wrote the June post, I hadn't started the Supercalifragilistic piece yet. Normally, a project like this one would have been done pretty quickly. I love stitching letters. But...life got in the way of stitching & I am about 1/2 way done with it. I hope to get back into more stitching, since school starts Tues. I babysit for a teacher, so I will start back up on Monday. I have had the little guy off & on over the summer, to keep him used to coming here.
At the beginning of July, we made what has become our yearly get away to Ohio Amish Country. We discovered a place that has cabins & we have gone there for 3 years now. It is a wonderful get away for us. We went to a couple new places this year. One we will probably go back to, one probably not.
We got home & were home for a week & I left again!
I had the AWESOME OPPORTUNITY to go to the Thirty-One National Conference. It was held in Atlanta GA. WOW!!!!!!! What an experience! I came home totally pumped about my business. And super excited that we can talk a little more freely about the business. If any of you would be interested in doing a catalog party or a facebook party, let me know & we can talk about it! I am so excited about the fall line, including SEVEN new purse styles!!! I have 5 of the 7 on hand & oh my! I can't pick a favorite.....love them all!
My husband & I have been busy with framing projects. We did 3 for my aunt just before conference & we have done 4 for me since my return. I have plenty more projects to be framed.
Oh! Speaking of frames.....one of the places we LOVE to go when we are in Ohio is Keim Lumber. They have all sorts of exotic woods. He gets wood each year & I benefit the frames from the wood!
I will try to be more prompt with my next update! Thanks for reading & have a great day!

A great update, Shari. I was already asking myself what you were up to. But it's good to know that you are fine. Very pretty pictures of your trip and all the stitching in their frames. And the best is the picture of you - very nice to see you on a picture.
