… a bit of waiting. . .


How good is this little guy?! Here's Bailey in all his 'good boy-ness' as he demonstrates his "wait" - when what he really wants to do is devour the dab of whipped cream from my mocha. He just loves the whipped cream part & is always by my side whenever I make a mocha at home.

So here he is. . . 'waiting'. . .  (Good boy, Bailey!!!)




. . . & here he is when he hears, "okay, good boy!"



(the length of that tongue - always amazes me! Seriously I think it comes all the way out from the bottom of his neck!) That's one little guy - who loves his whipped cream!

I have to admit, Bailey does the "wait" command really well. . . (& it has come in handy!). I'm also realizing that I need to learn to put the 'wait' command into practice  as well. . . . & although there are a few areas where is could come in handy, I'll just focus on one of them today.

You see, I received notice that a bolt of each of the fabrics in my next line are on their way! The last time I saw them - they were these smaller strike-off pieces. . .


. . . & soon it will be 36 bolts. . . filling up the studio. . . waiting to be made into wonderful things.

I've been tracking the bolts shipment for the past few days. . . & so now -  here's why I must really be good about the "wait" factor. . . 


When I last checked the tracking. . . I could see that it's here!!! All 36 bolts of my new line are here in Tucson. . . (I live just north of Tucson). . . but I can't get to them! Because UPS doesn't do regular deliveries on Saturday - I will have to wait until Monday. . .

Sigh.

I have a new appreciation for Bailey being so good with "wait".

::  Update - (about 3 hours after original posting. . . ) - Guess what?!?!   I love UPS!!!!  They  just delivered the boxes! . . today!. . . on a Saturday! Whoo-hoo! . . . & not only am I surrounded by 36 bolts of wonderful-ness. . . the boxes also contained the strike-offs for my fall line. . . Whew! - I'm gonna be one busy (but very happy!) girl this weekend!. I think this is what a 'fabric overload' feels like. . .!

Oh........a new line? Okay, I'll have to cut into my Celebration so I can make room for the next to-die-for fabric. I can do it. I can hardly wait to see the new line. It feels like Christmas is coming!
