Snowfall .....part 2

Here are a couple pics out our front window this is beautiful.  As long as I don't have to be out in it!  I am SO glad that my husband no longer drives over the road....him driving coast to coast the worry was great enough on a sunny summer day....but in conditions like this the worry was so much greater.  I would have to stay off of social media because of all the accident pics people would share.....especially when they involved semi's.

It finally quit snowing sometime last night.
However, they are still calling for more this morning.....and possible drizzle? 
Oh my! I may be looking at a couple more days of being in.....good thing I don't mind being at home.  There's always something to do here be it chores, spending time in the sewing room or simply getting to sit down and watch a movie......Today?  Yes, I think I will tackle the Christmas trees.

Many thanks to those who MUST be out...road crews, emergency responders, law enforcement, power crews, health care professionals....and those working in convenience and grocery stores.....and so many more.....
Have a blessed day.....C.

Snowfall .....

I can't remember the last time it snowed THIS much.....has to be at least 14" and it is still snowing.
It had been in the forecast....we had been hearing about it for several days to be expected by midday Friday.....and in anticipation early closings were being called on Thursday night.  Good thing because the weatherman called it....they were spot on.
This is out our back door today.....I wasn't going out any further to get anymore pics!

Most area churches have cancelled Sunday services.  
I spent today doing a few chores and some baking and have chili going in the crockpot for supper.  Tomorrow I plan on spending another day indoors....maybe I'll get to taking down the Christmas trees and decor.  Maybe.   As for the rest of today, I think I'll go close myself in my sewing room.

Have a blessed day......C.

Apron Finishes.....

Just a few of them.....I think most of these shown have been sold...either ordered or simply sold via my booth at a local shop....and I can tell you more about that in a later post.....
Most of my aprons are of the same's simply the fabric and sometimes a little embellishment of some sort that change the look ....all of them are fully lined....not so much for making it reversible but for durability.....I make them to be be used as aprons should be.
Let me know if you'd like one for yourself....or for your little kitchen helper!  My 7 year old granddaughter still loves the ones I've made her!

Thanks for stopping in today......

Have a blessed day.......C.

2019.....Happy New Year......

Hello again!  Long time, no blogging! Right?!
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas holiday and I am wishing you many blessings for this new year!
I want to ease back into this blogging world so I thought I'd share a post from January of 2009.

I am still obsessed with aprons and I will share some pics of some more recent finishes tomorrow!

Until then, have a blessed day.....C.

Back to Ebay.....

I went back to ebay.
It has been SO long since I had listed or bought anything off ebay that I could not get logged in with what info I had so I just had to create a new account....Yea! Cause that's always fun, right!
Since last listing on ebay I have found that they have become much more user friendly.
 I discovered while listing my one small item this morning that there is a free listing promotion going on....for up to 50 items!  Now that's some motivation to get sorting through things in the supply closet.  So, hopefully over the next few days I can get a few more things listed.  No telling what you might find in my listings.....things from my supply closet, the pantry, finishes that have been on the shelf too long or things from my closet. check back often!

Hope you are having a fabulous day!

A Recent Project...

Today I'm sharing a project from last fall.  
 Of all the sewing I've done in the past 30+ years I'd never made a T-shirt quilt. 
 Well, here is my first!
Yes, it is a smaller, more of a throw size but it was a good size to start with and a good learning experience.  I understand that there are lots more t-shirts for at least two large quilts.
Could this possibly be a new venture?
We shall see.
I hope you are having a fabulous day!
