Hello Cuties, I'm back! While on my trip, a lady placed an order for all this. Order was for :

2 Valet trays
4 zip top bags, one with her initial and other school
1 mug rug (larger school mascot name)
1 fleur-de-lis luggage tag
I am giving her two cord wraps, as a thank you for her order and a 10% discount.
I am meeting her today with all of it, so I hope she likes it all. Thanks for looking and I'm glad to be back on Cute! Hope you all have a nice day-Toogie

It just sounds like I have energy. When I feel good, I push myself. Today I got a lot done but no sewing or embroidering.

You are something else! You inspire me. Love these. Oh and by the way I have been stocking up on socks to make monkeys. Hugs, Suzanna

Good! Let us see your versions of monkeys. I found some socks again, so I have just 2 pair bought up, but won't be making them right now. The grands have theirs but I like to have some made on hand for 'just in case' someone needs one.

Just came back and finished all this! I bet the laundry is done, the photo's are sorted and everything's done and dusted too. You make me feel so lazy.
Your items look lovely, they will make a happy customer!

Thanks mops, she LOVED them all! I was tired of the red dots, but that's what she wanted, as it is the school colors.
As far as the rest, the laundry was done the day I got home. Put it to wash as soon as I walked in the house. The photos have all been put on the usb stick. Now the house is straight, but could use a dusting, so I've been neglectful there. I was tired Sunday after church, so took it easy that evening and sewed Monday. I did babysit half a day the great grand yesterday. Today I finished the order and met her half way, as we were both going there anyway.
Don't feel lazy, remember I see what you get done too!

She wasn't the only one this time, but before this, I only had someone order a purse, like I took on the trip to Maine. This woman though loved everything she 'won' and what her sisters won, too. There were 4 sisters that went together and they said they had a good time and you could see that they really had fun.

Me rest?-lol
Karen I'm glad you are on. Gus is having surgery tomorrow, tubes in ears that been having recurring infections and his adenoids out. He is still having other problems and got to see an allergist after this. Poor baby will be two next month....please remember him.

Glad to see you. I was afraid they ditched you in Florida! How was the shopping day?

I just got a few things in Fernadina Beach. Some shops just too pricey for me, anyway. While others shopped in St Augustine, I took a little lady with me on a trolley tour through the town. She was on a walker and couldn't do much walking to shop. I told her I was going to check out the trolley and if it worked out for our time I was going to do that. She asked if I minded her going too and I said not at all., come on. She thanked me afterward for getting our tickets and said she thoroughly enjoyed it. I did too.

by babash 28 Feb 2018

Everything looks so well made I am sure she will be very happy with her purchases.

She squealed with delight and I'm not exaggerating! She has this high pitch laugh-lol Thanks for looking and your nice compliment.

by peafarm 28 Feb 2018

Oh Gosh! I just love these---next time I make something square with design in center I am putting those Kam Snaps in--brilliant. Love that tag also but in all, pretty lot of stuff. I wouldn't know where to begin to ask for a price for this stuff. I never know if over charging or under paying myself for these specialty items not to mention monogramming and other designs. Glad you got back safely.

Thanks, I'm glad too. Sometimes I am uncertain about pricing too but no one seems to think I over charge. I told this lady if there was anything she wasn't happy with or not happy with price just tell me, or she didn't have to take. She wanted them all. I am hoping for more business from her and perhaps her sisters too.

Thanks Chris and I'm glad to be back! See you're busy with home improvements, but it will look fab when you're finished.

by pennyhal2 28 Feb 2018

Just when your thought your work was done...along comes a big order to fill! That just goes to honor the high quality of your work and show how much people admire what you do. She'll love these, and so will the people she gives them to!

toogie by toogie 28 Feb 2018

What a nice compliment, thank you. She did love them and her grand daughter that came with her got a cord wrap. Teens like anything to go with their electronics.
This wasn't the big order. Another lady ordered more but she doesn't need them until September. I won't make them until I phone her in August, just in case she changes her mind. Eight items, of the order, are personalized and if I make them ahead I'll be stuck with them. I think I'll ask her to mail a deposit before I do them, to cover my expense, just in case.....

pennyhal2 by pennyhal2 01 Mar 2018

Yes, a deposit is a good idea. I've made things for a special order only to have the person who wanted it change their mind.

Thank you very much. I am having a busy week and tomorrow one of the young grands is having surgery.
When I get back from the hospital I have to cook something for a wake. Avery's aide she used to have, at the school here, lost her son. He was young, but had PTSD from the service and other problems. I know his health was bad, but really don't know what he died from. He had been admitted to a nursing facility and his mom and dad had been sitting round the clock with him.
