waiting.....

I really do feel in limbo!!
I knew I would have this waiting time by launching the site early with ribbon only, but that doesn't make me any more patient!!!
Considering that there has not been any advertising outside blogland, my first 'live' 2 weeks have gone really really well. Thanks to you!! I appreciate the support and feedback you have given me. And it is lovely to know you like the products I am stocking as much as I do......
I think I did the right thing, having a pre launch launch! It gave me chance to iron out some problems, and its giving me an idea of what I can change to make running an online business smoother......
If all goes to plan then the fabric will arrive in 2-3 weeks time. I have arranged advertising, nationally, starting at the end of May, as by then there will be a good choice of fabrics listed on the patch website.
(That felt VERY grown up lol!!!)
So how shall we while away the time....with a giveaway or 2 perhaps???
This weeks giveaway is a ric rac one......
If you fancy winning a bundle of cotton and velvet ricrac, please leave me a comment before Friday night.

You don't have to have  a blog to enter, but I must have some way of contacting you.
Open to both UK and Overseas.
If you are a follower of this blog, you will get an extra entry...
And if you link back to here on your blog, thats another entry.
On Saturday morning, one of my glamorous assistants will pull a name out of a receptacle, and I'll get a package of ric rac in the post to the winner...
(then we can start again with next weeks!!)
