Good Sunday Morning...

Yes, I'm still here! We've just been enjoying this sweet baby girl in just about every spare moment!
She and Papa are having a serious conversation...something about a pony, camping and afternoon naps!
Just 11 days old and this Gramma thing is already SO awesome! People keep telling me... "it gets better!"....
And I can only imagine!
  In my mind, we are already taking walks through the woods,  baking cookies, stitching on doll blankies  and shopping!

She's such a sweet baby! 

So what else has been going on? 
Well, before all the baby excitement, I had a couple days that I  got to do some sewing.
I really had the intention of opening up  my etsy shoppe again but that's not going to happen just yet.
I will be taking these cute little numbers out to the mercantile later today......
If  you are interested in purchasing, just drop me an email and if still available, I'd gladly pop it in the mailbox for you!
The black/white and the pink/black aprons are $29.95 each and the multi-color dot apron is $19.95.  Price does NOT include shipping.   Payal preferred.
All three aprons are fully lined.

I have several more in the works with different fabrics and apron design....
and I will soon have child size aprons available.
It's been hot as blue blazes here in our corner of the world...the ac runs  non-stop from noon til late at night!  Fans are running inside and out.  Drinking lots of water!
For all the rains and flooding we had earlier, we are now begging for a good rain!
Hope you are staying cool!

Enjoy your day!

Thursday Ramblin'.....

And ramblin' it will be.  I'm still having computer issues and not sure what I'm going to do yet.  Repair mine, buy a new one, transfer all my things to this one.....I don't know but it's a terrible inconvenience...especially now. Not only was I wanting to get back to regular blogging,  I'm wanting to get back to listing on Etsy, among other things, where we've had to make other arrangements for communication.  You never realize just how much you use some things until you don't have them.

We will be going through some changes over the coming weeks.  We finally made the decision to sell the truck and trailer and all that was done yesterday.  My husband is back home and we feel like a load has been lifted off our shoulders.  Send some good thoughts and a lil' prayer our way that it doesn't take  long to find a job. 

Well, today is a day off for me so I'm going to do some fun work!

Enjoy your day!
