My side trip to Hancock's of Paducah

During my recent vacation out to New Mexico for our family reunion, we decided to drive from Knoxville , Tennessee to St. Louis since we still had friends to visit from the days of living there. On the way we drove thru Paducah, KY... so of course a stop at Hancock's of Paducah was in order.
What FUN!!!!

I could of spend hours and hours in that store. But since my daughters and husband were with me I knew that I must make quick work of my selections.
Actually they were really a BIG help finding some of my best sellers.
They also found the end of bolt bin for only $4.98 a yard!!!!
As you can see I think I gave one of the sales ladies a headache lol!!!!

I could not help but think of my fellow bag making friends on Etsy as I walked up and down the aisles. Glassbeach
to name just a few. Imagine the fun with all of us enjoying such a wonderful selection of all the latest designer fabrics.
I found many new fabrics which will hit my Etsy shop in the coming weeks. All to soon we were back on the road, but what a wonderful way to break up our road trip that day!!!

It is a little cutie!

My featured seller on Etsy was so much fun!! If you have not had a chance to read it please do.

Well, we had a wonderful trip out West to visit family. I wanted to really enjoy my vacation and try to relax since I knew I was coming home to 16 custom orders!!!

I have now started on them and all my customers have been so wonderful and patient. I also wanted to make myself my latest back pocket click it wallet. I love this Aqua Fresh fabric so I made another for my shop.

Another wonderful part of my trip was stopping in at Hancocks of Paducah for some wonderful additions to my fabrics. I had my daughter take pictures so that will be in the next post!!!

My new sewing studio

Well, my family had finally had it with my work being everywhere. I had my sewing and cutting in the family room. The computer and shipping in the dining room. The picture taking in front of the south facing window. So I am happy to say that after a few furniture moves I now have it all within one room!! Here are a few before and after pictures. I love it!!! Now I am not bothering anybody while I sew away !!! :)))
