This has been a busy, eventful week. I'll start with the most expensive. Got a phone call last Friday from my credit card processor. This is never a good thing. In the 20-some years we've been taking credit cards electronically, we've had umpteen jillion processors and none of them have wanted to talk with me. I always call them. Who they are is not something I concern myself about usually, but Friday I was forced to by a very sensible-sounding female (girl, she was young, I could tell) who told me that my credit card equipment was antiquated and I needed to replace it pdq. To the tune of $650. which I could spread over several months.
So, Thursday these beauties entered my life.
And this morning when I went to nearby shops to see if they could use my duplicate paper rolls, I realized that I really have been behind the times. I guess those rolls will become the new note paper at Needle Nicely.
The last 10 days I've been calling artists to order their new canvases. Many were at the market and took some deserved time off afterwards, something I try to do when I attend TNNA. Anyway, it's Murphy's law that I'd be alone in the shop talking on my cell phone when the shop phone rings. Talk about feeling clumsy with telephone receivers everywhere!
And now to the stitching--
I'm so excited because next week the majority of my new canvases will start filtering in. I can't wait, partially because I can't remember exactly what I've ordered. I only remember that I didn't order it, like the totem pole canvas that arrived one year. Definitely not the Needle Nicely look!!
