One Year Anniversary!!!

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 funny 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.

And now here I am. I have been able to discontinue substitute teaching, which is wonderful!

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.

For you faithful blog readers, you get 20% off one item today, tomorrow, or Sunday (before midnight EST) with the code ONEYEAR. You can pass it on to your friends also, but this is the only place you can get this code. :) I love you all and am grateful to have this business. You can purchase from my Etsy shop or email me at aprilforshee{@}gmail{dot}com.
