I arrived at my house around 1 AM Tuesday after a WONDERFUL Stitches West. I am, of course, totally exhausted, happy, sore, exhausted, sad the show is over and glad I'm done traveling for two weeks.
But, since my husband left for a business trip on Sunday, I hit the ground running. My son takes my comings and goings in stride, but this was the first time I left my daughter overnight. Leaving her for a week meant I needed to be punished. Her meltdown is still ongoing, but she is sleeping now, briefly. She heads off to Mother's Day Out in a couple of hours, and I expect that drop-off to be quite loud.
Here's what I've managed to accomplish so far on the business side in the last 24 hours:
Special Order Yarn: All yarn is ordered from the mills and will arrive to me within two weeks. I hope to have all special orders complete before I leave for the Hill Country Spinning Retreat on March 17. If yarn is not lost or delayed in transit, there shouldn't be a problem.
Patterns: Photographs are scheduled. Model unreliable.
Yarn: Scheduled to arrive in Texas Friday.
Online Shop: Some yarn came back in the suitcases; those quantities will be updated soon. The remaining shipped yarn will be updated over the weekend, if my husband is not delayed on his business trip.
Travel Schedule: Hill Country Spinning Retreat, March 17-23. DFW Fiber Festival, March 28-30. Stitches South, April 10-13. Yarnover, April 26. Shepherd's Harvest Festival, May 17-18. Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta June 5-8. Iowa Sheep and Wool, June 14-15.
