It is coming together!!

Lots and lots of stuff happening this week. If you are a vendor and I haven't gotten back with you, please, please forgive me. If you have written me about the Mach 1 and I haven't gotten back with you, please forgive me and come on Tuesday, the 13th and spin on one to see for yourself! Ashley and I have been holding a staple gun and paint brush for the last 3 days straight and now it is paying off!

We have our "knitting lounge" set up, equipped with chairs, couch, end tables and lamps. Today we are going to start moving in part of our inventory. This is so hard for us to believe. It seems like this has all been a big dream up until this part. Now, it is becoming real.

We have decided not to post pictures until after Saturday. We are having a preview party for the people who have helped make this store a reality. So, to keep it a surprise for them, we are keeping our finished project a secret and not posting any pictures.

I can tell you that the back deck is absolutely divine. Last week when we were walking back into the house from the shop, we saw 4 deer in the side of our property and a turkey flew over our heads at almost the same time! We have wrens nesting (even in our owl house!) and they are working with such exuberance, you might think they were opening their own yarn store. LOL
I love the deck and am so glad we are able to open it up for everyone to enjoy.

Ashley has not gotten a chance to finish dying all the yarn she has ordered, so I see that in the next week. We are going to become good friends with our cash register and credit card swiper-thing, ha!

We have an awesome first day planned and have more to announce about that later.

Stay tuned, things are happening fast over here!
