Productive Day

Does anyone else have just crazily productive days? I feel like I've been doing six things simultaneously all day today. Probably because it's a weekend day, Carlos is watching the kiddos, and I'm dizzy with the possibilities.

I worked on promos this morning (more of those buttons), made a trip to Michael's for fabric paint to have some fun with some boring plain t-shirts for the kids that are lying around, and have been managing to get quite a bit of weaving done, too. This may not sound like a lot to some folks, but for me, it's an amazingly productive day!

Check out a few of the t-shirts:

Two shirts for Ms. Bella (the poodle and the Eiffel Tower - she loves the Eiffel Tower since our trip to France last fall) and a cute Scottie Dog for Mr. Conall. I had way too much fun doing these.

I also have lots of yummy new tencel yarn waiting for me!

The front two purpley colors are going to be a custom huck lace scarf for a customer, and, as usual, I ordered a bunch of other colors while I was ordering those.... Baby toys and the latest Halcyon Yarn catalog as well and that pretty much sum up my day.

Just saw your note on bobbin winder. 30 years ago I went to a sewing machine repair place (home business type of place) and showed them a picture of an electric bobbin winder and they used a used sewing machine motor and foot pedal on a piece of sanded wood and tooled a plastic end of a stirring spoon to put in the winder part of the motor and I have been using it ever since. It cost me $35.

Thinking DH or someone could do the same for you.
