Aprons for Artists

Here's what I have been working on for the last week or two.

New aprons for our artists that paint at Artists On Main. The ones I am doing have the artists name above the design. Now, I don't have a business but I did offer to do these for our group. Well, the first day of stitching was great, the second day was not. I ended up having to take my machine to my local dealer which took about 4 days before I got it back. Oh my was I frustrated! I have finally got everything going again and have been hard at work on these since 8 a.m. this morning. I have completed about twelve and have about that many left. With luck and prayers I will get the majority of them completed this weekend. Gotta go, thread change time.

Waiting for Warm Weather!

I will be so glad when Spring gets here. I know our winter is not as bad as other areas (thank goodness for that), but I think I'm about over the cold and snow. I want to see trees budding and flowers blooming. I guess you can tell it's just one of those gloomy days here at home. Enough of that, Valentine's Day is Sunday and I hope that everyone has a wonderful day. Ricky ask me last night what I wanted and usually I say nothing, but this time I said a 2 carat diamond ring, a diamond watch, a weekend getaway, and I just went on and on about "stuff". It caught him off guard and he had no reply. I really thought it was funny. Actually, I am so blessed with my life that I don't need anything. I just hope for peace in the world and less worry for everyone. See ya later, gotta go!

Cleaned My Studio!

That title, "Cleaned My Studio", sounds like I never clean up at all. Actually, what I did was consolidate and remove. I found this nice shelving unit at Sam's that holds all my books, craft supplies, etc. This one unit has taken the place of 2 small bookcases and 1 pantry cabinet. Our son is taking the cabinet and I'm still deciding what to do about the bookcases. My next task is to work on my fabric baskets. They are a mess and I have a hard time finding anything. I have a storage tub that is full of scraps and they need to be organized as well. I need to get to work on some embroidered aprons for my art instructor. While they are stitching I will work on my fabric. Have a great day!
