I have not dropped off the face of the earth, although it feels like it. I am so use to being around my computer and now with being on the combine all day I feel lost. I am also feeling so overwhelmed with orders and can't seem to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Still waiting on a part for my machine so that doesn't help my situation. Just makes me more anxious and makes me feel even more overwhelmed. I like to get things done ASAP, and not have clients wait! All I can say is I am doing the best I can. I think we will have Ms. Kaitlyn over for the day when it is finally fixed. That way the boys can enjoy a day with her, they are totally in love with her, and I can get my things done! Most times I can always get things done during nap time...they are great nappers, but this time that won't fly!! No matter how fast or organized I am, this time it is not possible!

And I might add I don't have to deep clean the house this month...Derrick just called and said that it is DONE! Love that boy! No one can deep clean my house like me, UNLESS it is him....I taught him well. Thanks babe! Now all I will need is a massage after all this sitting on a combine and all my work from sitting/standing from embroidering and sewing! Some days I wish there were two of me.

Now, I must get off the computer...up by 6:15 for an early start to the farm! But a good day because my hubby will be here!!

Okay, so I went a little nuts on buying material today....lets say I pretty much got everything that was cute in the store and that was a lot. I have finished separating and piling! I will soon post these individually!!! I am going to offer these materials for my Designer Burps, Lo-B Burps, Aprons, Pillowcase Dresses, Applique designs, and whatever else you would like to make out of them!!

We have been busy with VBS and that has pretty much taken every thing out of us....not to mention I will soon be leaving for wheat harvest and I am trying to get things taken care of around the house. As much as I LOVE it, harvest is a very stressful time for me....trying to keep up with everything I do at home (ie. bills, laundry, kids activities....) and with my business.... trying to figure out when I am going to get all my orders done since I will be gone for 10 or so days!! It doesn't help that my machine is in the shop and I don't know when I will be getting it back! The part that stresses me out is that I may not get it back before harvest...and then what!!! I have to make clients wait, which is not like me...I HATE making people wait on anything. But that is the way it goes. If it does happen to get done before I leave, I will pull an all nighter. Something I haven't done in years, but will do because I won't take time away from my kids during the day! Or if it gets done during harvest, I may just have Derrick bring it out and I will work during the day driving combine...well sometimes until morning hours (when I mean day it runs from about 6am to midnight or so) and then come home and embroider and sew! We shall see what the future holds!! These are all orders I want to personally do!! Don't get me wrong...I LOVE harvest, but sometimes it just gets a little CRAZY!!!

Stephen Joseph Bags

FYI....several Stephen Joseph Quilted Backpacks are being discontinued
or on back order. If you are interested in getting one for school or
just for your little toddler to use as a travel pack you may want to
order now. My supplier has limited quantity right now and is not sure
when she will get more in. Let me know. I will be ordering within the
next day or two!
