So Excited!

A local businessman has agreed to let me put my Capri Sun Designs in his store.

I'm really excited for this opportunity.

A portion (more than half) of all these sales will go to my chapter of Project Linus.

I'm sewing these up like crazy to build up a big inventory, I'll still have to keep up my web sales of these.

My small town is responding very well to PL.

I was in two local papers last week.  That really helped get the word out.

I now have skeins of yarn coming out my ears.  Two ladies have donated 4 bags full.

I've found 3 local ladies that are willing to take it and turn them into blankets.

I'm still waiting on approval of the PL site I've built and then I can release it.

That's what I've been up to, how about you?
