How This All Started...

I hinted that there would be an announcement of sorts back in June. Yeah I thought I would be ready for it sooner, but I wasn’t. I am now.

First I have to tell the story of how all this began. Back in April, I was planning on participating in my parents’ neighborhood yard sale. I had just started sewing again and had a permanent place to keep both machines out on a table. No more putting them away after completing a project. My mom suggested that, for the yard sale, I make some cute aprons. We thought that folks would snatch them up!


No one even looked at my aprons. Sigh. Oh well. Now at least I have a good story to tell!

So I told this story to a lot of people. The reaction was always, “Oh I didn’t know you could sew.” or “I want to see the aprons, I’ve been looking for a cute one.” or “Can you make me _________?” Ever since then I have had projects to do for people.

So far I’ve done aprons, curtains, tote bags, purses, and some alterations.

I’ve also opened an Etsy shop. You can see it here. I also accept custom orders.

In the next couple of weeks, I am going to be having a giveaway!!! Stay tuned!!!

By the way, the 2-day yard sale got me $100 and a F-150 full of stuff to take to Goodwill. What a wash.
