Inspirations

It all starts with one little piece of fabric.  This one happened to be a piece of vintage turquoise and brown with designs that took me back to the 50’s ………..when kitchen stoves and refrigerators were acually turquoise!

 

Then of course we have to throw in some brown.

 

Let’s put some stars into the equasion…………..just because.  Well, actually just because I love stars!

These three fabrics were going to become a fabric postcard.  But, I thought I would try my hand at a half apron.  Of course, I have no pattern for a half apron.  No problem, hey! I’ll just make one up……………so out comes the graph paper……….
scissors………
ruler…….
tape measure………….
swearing………..

And a new pattern has been accomplished, and the cutest chic little apron has been born.

New Creations

 

As many of you know I love creating.  My passion is fabric.  I love to mix fabrics, never knowing where the disign will take me.  I am never sure if it will end up a postcard, purse, or a piece of wall art.

I am sooo in love with my newest creations.  Aprons.  Yes, the woman that does not cook anymore, is absolutely head over heels in love with aprons. 

So, of course I have to design some (many).  The full aprons were based on a pattern, but the half aprons with the sassy ruffles are my pattern.  

If you don’t hear from me for awhile, just look under the piles of fabric………(or on etsy

I’m there somewhere…………… 

I Just Love Charlie………………….

I think as a parent we can all relate to these boys……………

especially Charlie!!

There Are Days

 

 

There are times I think if someone really knew my life story, they would wonder why in the world I would even want to get up every morning and continue with it all.

 But I look at: 

my children
my grandchildren
my mother
my sister
my brother
my seniors at work
my co-workers
my friends
my backyard
my adirondak chair
my books
my art
my crafts
my comfy, cozy bed
my garden
my overstuffed, beat up old recliner

Yes, I made some awful choices, and some really horrid things happened to me, but through it all, no matter how far down I was, I could always say:

I love my life…………………
