Thanks so much to each and every one of you who have buoyed me up these past few days, getting ready for today's open house.  I closed up at 12:30 last night and headed home, getting to bed around 2:00.  But, I'm feeling pretty good about how the gallery looks.  My office?  That's another story!  Hopefully I can throw some spit and polish at it this morning before the first customer arrives.

Hope YOU have a good one, whatever you're doing today.  :)

  1. Have a wonderful, successful day!
    We'll all be thinking of you :-)

  2. Good luck, best wishes and hope you sell out today!

  3. go girl! wish I could be there, I'm sending my "wanna buy stuff" energy telepathically to those that stop in at your place!

  4. I just looked at Mama Pea's post with a picture of the new quilt - It. Is. Fabulous. Your customers will smile and buy up all you 'stuff'!!!

    Best of luck, and you will sell lots and lots today.
    Many Hugs

  5. Can't wait to hear how things went! Hope everything turns out wonderfully!

  6. Looking forward to hearing the report! We did our small town Christmas walk yesterday and I couldn't help but think of you as we went in and out of all the shops. So fun! Hope you loved it and a new tradition is born!

  7. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, friends! And now, without keeping you in suspense a moment longer . . . I'll go post!
