Time Flies

Almost there. I can not believe how time has been flying by. Almost one
year ago I created my very first home made cotton tape. I had not
thought, for one second, that my life would change as much as it has
since that moment. 

I was hand stitching a large felt house for Laurraine (Patchwork pottery)
for a Christmas gift, and I needed a specific cotton hoop for on the roof,
so I made one.... 

... and the rest is history... 
I have been making so many since then. And every day I have a new idea
for a new cotton tape. My little Things-To-Do-Book is bursting. 
((I would like days to be longer, but I tried to do without sleep, 
my body however, did not agree.) 

On March 3rd of 2009 I listed my very first cotton tape in my Etsy 
Shop. And I must admit I am still very very shocked about all 
the wonderful feedback I have received since starting. 
And I would like to say thank you so much for all your support
and friendships. It means ever so much. 

My very first Tower of Tapes. 

It has been such a mad year! 

Thank you so much!
