Keeping up the Practice

un uccello testa rossa
a red head bird

It has been a challenge to find time every day to devote to my New Years goals. I keep my embroidery in a basket close to my desk for impromptu stitches. The other day I stitched this little bird during a fifteen minute phone conversation....
....and speaking of phone conversations.
I had a most rewarding phone conversation/consultation with
Stacey Cornellus of thestudiosource.com.

I'm not sure what your clue meant, but that's okay;-) I'll figure it out!

Stacey is a great source of help and I'm so glad you two connected via phone. She has a refreshing way of looking at marketing, one that isn't full of hype.

Lydia...My clue was in reference to what I am making with the black embroidery floss. I finished it today and hope to post it tomorrow.

Yes Stacey has great insight and has really helped me move to the next step with my business.
