Fingers Crossed

I am so happy to announce that Fluffy Sheep Quilting (the shop) has been listed as a finalist for the 2012 Irish Website Awards in the Small Enterprise category!  Woo hoo!  Of the 72 nominated sites in this category, we have made it to the final 8.


The winner will be announced one week from today on 1 November.  Please send your happy vibes to Dublin this week in the hopes the choose Fluffy Sheep Quilting as a 2012 winner.  That would be absolutely spectacular!

A huge thank you to Susan, Hadley, Sarah, Catherine, Kat , Pat and my parents who spent a generous amount of time helping me refine the design of the website.  They also provided a massive amount of emotional support and encouragement as the shop was being launched.  You guys are amazing and I am lucky to have you as friends.  Thank you.  I worked with Block 5 Design here in Galway for the graphic design of the site and actually implementing the coding, etc to  support the shop.  They were FANTASTIC.  If you are ever looking for help with an app or a website, call them immediately.

That is the  happy news around here.  Hope you are having a great day too!
