All you need to know about Iron On Bling & Hot Fix Crystals

I think I have it under control?

The title of this blog is how I’m feeling at this point of taking back Sue’s Sparklers. I’ve learned a lot and hopefully I’ve worked out the bugs on the website. There are still questions from time to time, but they are getting fewer. And, your patience has been much appreciated.

I’m in the process of adding the Sue’s Studs designs to the Sue’s Sparklers website. I’ve gotten through most of the iron-on designs, and then will start on the stencils and then the laser-cut appliques.

Back in April, we did a quilt show/junk show in Ellensburg WA. That was quite the combination of shows. But, I love rust and re-claimed materials, so i got to do a bit of shopping myself. That was fun. We made time for an extra day and drove up to Peshastin and Leavenworth WA. We only moved to ID 2 years ago, so we don’t know a lot about ID, let alone WA. We’ve always wanted to live on a river, and the Peshastin creek was a great area. Right now, in CdA, we have some freeway noise. When we went to the property in Peshastin, the realtor asked if we could hear the road. Ha, the river was so loud, we almost thought it was TOO loud. Is that possible? We really loved that river.

Then we went and toured Leavenworth. You have to give a town a lot of credit to re-define themselves and turn themselves in to a town built on tourism, which will give jobs to its residents. The bldgs. are cute and the mountains were gorgeous. We hope to go back in a couple of weeks to check out more property.

In June, we went to Reno to do a sewing and quilt show. That is always a fun show to do. We stay at the hotel where the show is, so everything is very easy. They have a Chinese restaurant in the hotel that is so good. It always makes us wonder if we do the shows for business or for food.

In July, we did the quilt show in Redmond OR. We had high hopes but it wasn’t as good as we had hoped. But, there is always good stuff that happens. After we set up the show, we drove over to Sisters as we had heard so much about the town. It was very charming and the shops were great. Whenever I’m away from home, even if it is with business, I go in to what I call ‘vacation mode’. Money is spent freer, because hey, I’m on vaca! I visited the famous quilt shop, which started the Sisters quilt show from the beginning. Of course, I bought some fabric. The next great thing was the business that set up across from us, had a wireless speaker that worked with Pandora on her phone. Wow, to have music to set up by. That changed our whole attitudes and made the time fly by. So, off to Costco when we came home and we picked up a little speaker for $70.00. We used it in Kuna ID and the time flew by. One of their people had to keep walking by our booth all weekend and when it got slow we put on our station. She was in heaven.

Now, I have 7 weeks off from shows, before we go to Boise ID at the end of Sept. I still have a lot of work to do on the website and I also need to come up with more new designs. Bye for now, and hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.
