Guess what I found this afternoon....the floor behind my desk!It may seem to be a strange thing to celebrate, but I just haven't been able to get on top of the incoming stock for what has seemed months.  Mostly because I needed to get rid of stock that has gone well past it's use by date to make room for the exciting new things like the Medici wool replacement "Bella Lusso" made from Australian merino wool, spun in Italy for an American needlepoint shop.  How's that for global networking!   But now I have finished, moving threads from hook to hook,  buying new shelving & display units (on wheels for next time I move things around) and pricing & putting out stock.  And after all this the added bonus of....a floor behind my desk!  It's small things that excite one!

It is scary what one finds when taking advantage of a Year 12 boy's need for cash.  My friend's son has finished his exams & I have employed him to empty out our storeroom and we will sort into trash, recyclable and TREASURES.  Amongst the Treasures I have found 2 plastic storage bins full of SEMCO rug hooking wool - you know the sort it is about 3inches long bits that you hook through 3 to 5 count canvas to make a rug.  Thereby giving yourself  carpal tunnel syndrome...but that is another story.  Here it is, the secret stash/hidden treasure ....  I am selling for $1 a bag of 10 skeins of wool, no breaking up of colours.  As is where is......
