24 hours and 9,000+ yards of ribbon

YES, I am SERIOUS! I got a delivery yesterday! It contained 82 spools of striped ribbon and about 10 spools of solid grosgrain ribbon. I was on a MISSION! I cut ribbon from 9 pm until 3 am. Then, I woke up this morning and between the hours of 9 and 6:30 (with a couple breaks in between of course) I managed to finish ALL of the ribbon. My Mom was nice enough to come and help me from 2:30 until 6:30. I was the "cutter" and she was the "bundler". LOL Over 9,000 yards of ribbon has passed through my fingers today! WOW! Imagine that? LOL I am now waiting on the final 8 spools of ribbon to be delivered sometime in the next couple days *crossing fingers*. As soon as I get it, I will cut and bundle so I can ship the ribbon. YAY! I need to top off the boxes with the remainder of the red striped and yellow striped ribbon and they are DONE! I REALLY like the striped ribbon. It is awesome! Very nice texture and pretty colors! I know you will love it!
I also want to mention that I did not get to the post office today with the 13 January grosgrain share boxes. I WILL be shipping tomorrow. Sorry for the one day delay, but I was up to my elbows in ribbon and was determined to get it done. Having a "bundler" was a nice perk also! LOL
Thanks to all who have joined the Prima flower share. Sign ups are still open for most shares. Scroll down to check out the details for that share.
I have been asked about doing another ribbon share. Please watch my blog often for details about that. They fill up fast! I am shooting for sometime in February.
Have a wonderful day!
Signed your VERY tired, ribbon loving friend :)
