Contemplating a name change

So, Saturday evening should be a time of relaxation, especially since my vacation days were winding down. I was still stoked from the Sewing Expo, and the fact that I had talked my wonderful husband to attend the vendor floor with me on Saturday. He became excited as well, and was wishing that we could snap pictures of the various booths to give him ideas.

Anyway, as we came home we began discussing the business. Serious discussions. He is not sold on Thread Treasures as a name for the business. We knocked heads until at least 1:30 in the morning coming up with ideas for a name. Every outstanding idea that we had only pointed us to at least one business somewhere with the name. I want my/our business to have a unique name. We now have the list down to four serious possibilities. Heck, I even embroidered one on a shirt to see how it would look. (Yes I know, jumping the gun just a little bit...) We have to stew on this naming thing for a bit. I however am chomping at the bit to get started. To me, every day that is not doing business is a day wasted.

My husband came up with an invention that solved an issue of mine.... Stay tuned.

Sewing and Quilting Expo 2009 has come and gone

And boy am I beat! I'm still trying to recover, but have to return to work tomorrow.

I had a wonderful surprise when I hit the vendor floor, as Thread Guy was there. When I had checked and rechecked the vendors, he was not listed. I am so happy that he was there again this year. I did get my Marathon Thread fix. They have some new metallic threads, which I just had to have. One was the huge 5000M cone, and is the white pearl iridescent. The others were iridescent as well, but the white pearl has always been a favorite color of mine. Don't you know I spent the first bit of this morning stitching out a freestanding snowflake of it? Sorry for the bad scan, but hopefully you can tell which one is with the metallic thread.
