"Ironing" Elbow vs "Tennis" Elbow......

After ironing for a week now I swear I am suffering from "ironing" elbow/shoulder....but we have more to do to be ready for 3 shows over 2 weeks...cause there will be no time to restock between.  Whoever thought this would be a good idea....needs to be put in time out.....hmmmm!
These little bits of burlap will get tied up with our hand-dyed cheesecloth, osnaburg, and kona, becoming what we call "Bindles" yummy little packs of texture. Great for adding dimension to your work...just need a little bit in a landscape.  Love them.
However, most of my time over the past week has been taken up with ironing 8 yard bolts of osnaburg...15 bolts worth....holy moly that is a LOT of fabic.  By the time Kristin came back from her week of "relaxation" there were stacks of fabrics ready to wind onto the cardboard you can see that hasn't happened yet...even though she's been home for a few days.  It is like sitting in color heaven!

Oh and we have folded cheesecloth and folded cheesecloth to the tune of 4 overflowing clothes baskets.  Remember the stack in the chair I showed previously...well this is the last basket full...yeah the chair is empty...yippeeee!  This does not even take into count the perle cotton we have twisted, rayon seam binding or sari silk we have package.....oh boy will our booths look good come Mid-Atlantic in Hampton, VA, QuiltCon in Savannah, GA and Quits in Paradise Show put on by the Friendship Knot Guild in Sarasota, FL.

Guess I've had a bit of a break and it's time to go tie up all those goodies.....
