The Month Gone By

Can it already be July?? What happened to June? The funny thing about being able to "take the summer off" is that you really just have more to do before you can actually "take the summer off". So this past month of June I've done all my work for July and August - well, almost! I've designed our July and August collection of notions and our holiday 2011 fabric line, as well as received our holiday 2010 collection of fabric, Lumiere de Noel. I've thrown a couple of kids parties, gone out to dinner a few times and started swimming laps in the slightly less than freezing pool. I also met up with a wonderful quilter who is going to start helping us design quilt kits and spent hours on the phone with a sewer who is quietly answering questions about long arm quilting as well as what to do next. Oh - and I just received the sample yardage on La Petite Ecole - a wonderful line of French school book inspired prints - soft reds, old French blues and subtle shades of grey. And did I mention I have a 13 year old in the kitchen!

Love this post, a glimpse of the real Kaari!

Did I mention that I have a really cute, almost 15 year old son, who spends time in the kitchen as well!

awww a 13 year old in the kitchen here too! It's marvelous when she says don't come in, I'm fixing dinner and want to surprise you. But funny how she never says that when it is clean up time! :) Great to see another one cooking. Enjoy!
