A ray of sunshine would be nice, but we might as well forget that, for today anyway. In fact, we could possibly get a little snow. Imagine that! How sad for the tender young flower shoots and buds that have come out. Why even the Peonies are about a foot tall...and we still have at least three more nights of freezing weather before a little warm up.
I've been piddling around in the sewing room at night...working on three more dolls, and cutting out a few aprons.
A lady from up the road called and asked if I had any dolls made. A friend of her's saw the one she bought at the Christmas Bazaar and liked it. Anyhow, she came and bought three more.
Also have finished, finally, that blue calico cross-back apron. It only needed the straps sewn in the back, and it had been like this for weeks.
So, it can now go in the little Henny shop.
I had looked at this pattern several times in Walmart thinking it was cute, but had never picked it up and looked at the back view until last week...
To my surprise, it's a cross-back apron! I bought it!
So, I've cut out one from the black and white cherry fabric. Have also cut out a cross-back apron (my pattern) from the chicken fabric.
While I'm on a roll, might as well show you this bright green one!
finished plain, without the ruffle. Got to thinking, some folks might not like a ruffle on an apron.
Shelby and Jimmy (my sister and brother-in-law)
plan to stop selling at the farmer's market this spring. Shelby and I want to get back into craft bazaars. There are some good ones around Durham. We used to really enjoy doing those together. One reason for my spending more time in the sewing room lately!
and this big boy! Why, my sells might increase if there wasn't always a kitty cat sitting at the sewing machine. I've noticed on places like ebay, where folks note on what they are selling, "from a smoke free, pet free home". Well we have a smoke free home but certainly not a pet free home!
Wow! I started this post to talk about this cold winter-like weather and the poor pitiful tender plants and flowers, and look how it's turned out.
And, will this cold rain ever stop? We've got red muddy water running in streams down the side road and into the pond! and cold winter weather has been back for weeks now! That's okay though. We do have a lot to be thankful for. A lot!!
Thank you...if you're still here. :)
