The Eyelets Are Here!!
I'm so excited and pleased to announce the arrival of the eyelets!! Can you imagine all of those boxes filled to the absolute top with bags of eyelets?? I'm opening only one at a time because otherwise I'd be overwhelmed with the task at hand! I'm still taking guesses on the total weight of that stack of eyelets. I will take guesses until Monday and announce the winners here on my blog. To enter, send me an e-mail or a PM on SCS with your guess as to the total weight of the eyelets as shipped to me. This includes everything you see in the top picture.
The bottom picture shows the counting process in action. I have a little counting scale (bottom center). I scoop the eyelets from the bowl into those little cups, then dump the cups into little baggies. I enlisted my kids in the dumping process with the promise of treats. Perhaps a trip to the Dollar store is in order when we're done. LOL I purchased a bunch of tubs (green box on table) to put each completed color into. Once the colors are all counted, I'll be sorting them into sets.
The eyelets just arrived yesterday. I started the counting process in the evening and completed 3 colors last night. I'll update here frequently to let you know how quickly I am able to complete the counting. I estimated it would take me 40 hours and we'll see how accurate that is.
I also have to say.....they look fabulous! The colors are great and I think you'll all be very pleased!
