Did I just see....

It is going to be over 100 degrees the rest of this week!! So I was getting ready to cut the backyard with my "Old School " lawnmower this evening before it gets too hot.

It saves tons of money on gas. ;)

We got it to cut the weeds in between the yardman's visits. I kinda like it. It is very easy to use ~ plus it is exercise equipment...right?! After cutting the backyard my legs were tired!! But before I started, I was in at the computer checking my Esty store when Sweet Mama said from the porch..."Look at that!"

Look what I saw hopping through our fenced backyard!!

I know it is hard to see BUT I took this pic through a storm door and screened-in porch! SO it is a little blurry! When I went to get a better shot it was gone...through the fence slats and into another yard. It reminded me of when I was a teenager and my brother was little. We had a rental house in Holden Beach NC. Every time he saw one he would say "Look a Funny Rat!!"

So here is our Funny Rat...just thought I would share! ;)

Sharing with the world!

Back in March I sold 5 St Patrick's Day half aprons to Barcelona, Spain! Earlier this month I received this picture of them! The customer was an owner of a coffee shop and wanted these for her waitresses for St Paddy's Day! Are they cute!! I love to see my customers enjoying my work! And it is cool to think that something I made here at my kitchen table is being worn around the world. This weekend I sold a mother and 2 toddler aprons to Canada, 2 BBQ aprons to England, 1 BBQ to Australia and I made a Ruffle Apron for a friend who is taking it as a gift to Italy!

Just so cool!!

Hello friends!

I sorry I have been missing for a bit. It has been a very busy Mother's Day season!

And to add to that I have been having a 10% off sale in the shop to celebrate Sweet Mama's birthday, which was April 8. She turned 75! So I have been sewing my little fingers to the bone to keep up with all the orders~ Now I'm not complaining...I'm happy to be busy!

But it has kept me from finding time to write...

So what has been going on with me...

Well, I have added Plus Size BBQ aprons to the shop which have been very popular! I also had a request for a Ruffle Apron in Plus Size. It turned out cute, so that is coming soon!

Also have a new Duet...Love it! Don't you!

It is called Romance...I did have a Ruffle like this too...I need to make another!

Tomorrow is a busy day. It's time for the annual power washing of the screen porch! It is covered in pollen and cat hair so everything must be deep cleaned and then replaced!

Quite an all day affair!!

Yes EVERYTHING must come out and be cleaned!

And I have flowers to plant! Another Gerber daisy to add to the collection!

And a new Knock Out rose to add to the front bed. I would have taken a pic to show but it has gotten dark! So I will share tomorrow with the finished product! (the color for the day is yellow!)

The first flower on this post is my mum from last fall!

It has decided to return...but it is not too pretty. See...
A little frazzled and stalky, but blooming and determined to persevere...just like me!!

So I promise to write more often...once I get my chores done! :)
