Castlewarming Party and Needlepoint Sale on Queendom Website

It is the happiest feeling! I feel like MacSoph and I have truly settled Queendom Website in our new home. We just finished putting up our first sale from Muse and it is working grandly!

We made this sale to test whether we could work Muse well enough that we could do our big fall sale, E-Week, from it. In many ways E-Week is my Ring of Fire in that it is large and sometimes difficult and I need to be at my best for it, and so does MacSoph.

Tomorrow morning (that is, Saturday morning August 4) is our big test, for at 8:00 a.m. sharp California time we begin opening 5 Surprise Windows.

Surprise Windows and Early Morning Sales are an on-going tradition at E-Week. There for two mornings I open a series of 8 windows with surprises behind them. To manage them, MacSoph and I need to be our very most nimble selves.

If indeed we succeed in opening them, then we will congratulate ourselves, spend the following two days celebrating, and on Monday morning start preparing for E-Week. We will know then that we can do it all.

If you would like to take part, go to Queendom Website right before 8:00 a.m. California time on August 4:

So what's worth coming for? A sweet little freebie that is a small thank you for putting up with our transition in the last year, and a glance toward E-Week, now just about 2+ months away. E-Week starts this year on October 17.

It has been a little over a year since I found out that Apple is discontinuing iWeb as I knew it; just about a year since I learned that Adobe had planned Muse. It has been a year of learning and moving.  I've learned about C-Panels and FTP stuff, and other stuff I'd never thought an aging lady could learn, but here we are, with all our ducks in a row, at least until tomorrow morning.

If indeed our Surprise Windows open successfully, you will hear MacSoph and me shouting in joy across the country, and then the celebration! An afternoon and evening of stitching, nothing but stitching! I plan on stitching and chatting and partying in my general classroom at Shining Needle Society.

If you would like to join our party, join Shining Needle Society and ask to be in my general classroom there. To join, write to Kate Gaunt who is director: Membership is free and we plan to revel into the night!!

Wish me luck for tomorrow morning and come party with us tomorrow afternoon and evening.
