Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

My plate is full already, thank you.
Miss me yesterday? I didn't think so. I have a ton of stuff to do. My knitting list is large but so is the rest of my todo list.
I'm rearranging my business. I cancelled all out of state shows and am trying to get all the tax paperwork in order for all those other states. I'm tired of traveling so much, and such long distances. That means I need to get going and find a few more shops to sell my wares. I've been unpacking and packing, packing and unpacking. Getting things in order to take to the shop I do put my stuff in. Later today I'll be traveling an hour or so to make pottery deliveries and check on a few hopeful opportunites. I mean, who wouldn't want a sheep mug? Too bad a picture doesn't do it justice. I hear people like to pet these mugs (hi Sue!).
I've started a new project with my mom. Custom embroidery kind of stuff. We are learning to use a home industrial embroidery machine. We will be embroidering things like hats, totes, bags, shirts, pants, basically whatever people want us to We will be supplying all the product and in others we will embroider whatever is brought to us. Such as, people that take their kids to daycare, we'll embroider the child's blanket, bag, towels, etc so that some other kid won't end up going home with them. I'm also thinking of making more of that sheepie stuff. Don't remember it?
I'm working on getting my website for this stuff up and running. My realistic goal is October 1. My wish is to have it done yesterday, but I'm working as fast as I can. I'm not very good at it so its going a bit slow.
Of course I still have a so-called life. I need to visit a friend today and yesterday I got to meet a really nice knitter. We had talked a bit over on Knitter's Review forums and yesterday we met a favorite LYS and had lunch together. Its always nice to put a face to a name. She's only been knitting a year and is already a really great knitter.
I'm doing all the usual work, plus all that and I'm still knitting and spinning. Although not getting very far. I turned the heel on the making waves sock and I'm finishing up the Mandy red spinning. I'm hoping on my rounds of pottery pimping I get to visit a Yarn store or 2 today. Let's see if I can find them out there in the back roads of Maine.
