This and That

Beautiful day here today, finally. This spring has been awful. We had a little nice weather early on and then it has been either cold or raining, and raining and raining. Today it was sunny and in the low 70's so that is quite an improvement!

Took over 200 photos of more things for MyOtherShop...coasters, light switch covers, pillows, etc. Now I have to tweak them and then get everything listed. Here is a sneak peek!

Found some cute t-shirts at Target for work and the trip. I love wearing jeans and tees every day. I wish it was always like that. I even bought a new ironing board cover. Mine had no padding left. I think it was about 15 years old...or more!

I start summer hours tomorrow. I start 30 minutes early every day and then get to leave at noon on Friday. It's hard for me to get to work by 7:00 a.m. I have a 40 minute commute. That means I won't have any computer time in the morning. It will just be get up, walk the dog, do some weights, get cleaned up and dressed and out the door. I cannot bring myself to get up any earlier than 4:45-5:00!

I finished the green apron yesterday and almost have the black and white one finished today.

Remember the awesome fabric...well the aprons are even more awesome! I should have them both listed this week. I have five more of this style to make and then I will get fabric to try some other styles. This is so much fun!

Have an awesome rest of the day and I'll chat with you soon!

Can't wait to see the new stuff!

The little "Love" pillow is cute...I have been working on something that would look cute with it. Maybe the person who buys it will come to my shop and buy what I am making (unless of course I sell it at my art fair!) I should be finished with it tonight.

How do you do it all? I have to go back to work tomorrow after a week off. Opened an ArtFire shop tonight. Do you have one?

I don't have an ArtFire shop. I thought about it, but I don't even have the time to promote my etsy shops the way I should. I started opening a 1000Markets shop and haven't put anything in it.

Just about every minute I am not at work, I am in my workshop. I just don't find most of it to be work, except the photographing and listing. Sewing is very calming to me. I've tried a lot of different thing for my shops looking for what I like to do the best and I think I am narrowing in on it. Time will tell.

In the winter Irv missed me, but not now that summer is here. He's too busy with the flowers, the garden and the cars! :)

When you are enjoying your first Friday afternoon off, it will all seem worth it:)
I love the "love" fabric.I think it would make a swell apron!
