Time out

I am going to have a week off from miniatures and work on a larger piece of blackwork for myself. I have been busy of late, making new bears for forthcoming projects and designing new stool cover patterns, but I really need time to spend on the paperwork side of Bearcabinminiatures as I have ordered loads of new stock lately and need to write down how much I paid for each or I will forget and then the time time will come to price my completed sets and I will be stuck!! Typical me, really.. LOL
Oh.. and before I forget and waffle off on something else, a BIG thanks to everyone who left me comments or emails with details of suppliers. It was a great help and I have already used a couple. Also, A huge HI to my new followers and welcome, its great to hear from you.
Anyway, as I said, I am going to work on a larger piece of blackwork for myself. The idea behind it, is to make a piece about 10 x 12" with all the different blackwork patterns I use in miniature and hopefully some new ones. That way, I will have a stitched record of the patterns I have used for miniatures and if I can't decide a pattern to chose to work on one day, all I will have to do is take a look at my blackwork sampler for inspiration.
As I have already mentioned, I won't be placing a post for a week (unless something major or really exciting happens!) but I will still be around to answer emails, read comments and peek at my favourite blogs.
