We might have bought the little old house next to the workshop....
And we will have a space for a library.
Anything else that is good luck.
|Painted Churches of Romania|
Excellent tour to Vietnam
I have started a proper write up but need to get office computer fired up to add photos. So enjoyed our latest visit to this magical place.
Then a fantastic family holiday in Oz, got to spend time with my kids, grandkids and mate Dawn, rather than running like crazy as I have done in last few visits when new grandkids came.
Off to Oz again in a few weeks at the guest artist at The Perth Quilt and Craft Fair
Very exciting, let me know if there is anything I can bring along. I am there to share our story and show our work as well as have stuff for sale. Suggestions on what "stuff" appreciated.
Just before I will have a few days visiting our mates at ANJELMS... they always come to us, it will be lovely to meet Gaelle and her gang at home.
Our TO DO list is huge, glad of the family holiday in Australia, our time away was actually relaxing. We will need all.our strength to get through the next few months.
1. Catch up in workshop, gang seems to have done a great job moving through work left in progress, now to sort out a few glitches, new orders and see what training needs to be improved upon in following up on orders. I am working very hard at putting responsibility into our staff's hands. Good for their confidence and skill set and takes a huge weight off my shoulders.
2. Websites need a whole new thing especially back end. Grrr it has to be done, I have outside expertise to do the big lifting but will need to do all the blurbs and pictures etc to help.
3. Planning new trips.
We are knee deep in plots and plans and lists and contacts. Time to do road trips and walk it all through. Literally a road trip here in India for the 'Chikankari to Enlightenment Tour ' and an addition of train and aeroplanes for the 'Bucharest to Budapest Tour'
4. Creative Arts Safaris is busy later in the year with trips, still places to join our Rajasthan:A Tactile Textile Tour
AND 2020 is going to be exciting so many places to look forward to...
So much planning to make it happen.
5. After CAS gets its website spruce up I need to rethink The Stitching Project site and what we offer.
We are so busy looking after client work, it keeps the gang employed and let's us slowly bring in new members.... I have been trying to get up new original work under our label as well but sm rubbish at the getting it onto the web for people to see. If I am to continue with that I need a format the gang can follow to get it listed for all to see. Not enough hours in a day for me to do it.
So hard to develop the necessary skills but surely I can spot someone here able and willing to learn. Hmmm?
There is more, but thankfully it eludes me at the moment, I would not want the list so big it is overwhelming
Off to work we go :)
