Vacation!

30 Jun

I had a wonderful vacation the end of May/beginning of June. I traveled with a friend to Kansas and to Illinois. I had a great time with friends and family. In Kansas I helped my young friends learn how to make my towel toppers and my gift bags. That was fun. I hadn’t planned to do that, so I didn’t have any patterns or anything a long. But we figured it out!

 

I really enjoyed my Aunt’s rose garden Illinois. She has beautiful roses!

 

When I came home, I had a little time adjusting back to the heat -and the allergies! So it took me awhile to get back into my sewing and other projects. I started with the easy projects. I had bought a bunch of fabric before I left to make bags, but didn’t get them sewn up. I was getting a little worried that the colors are to ‘springy’, but I finally sold 2 pink ones today!

While I was on vacation, my shop was not. My Mom, bless her heart!, shipped my orders for me! That was so nice of her and was nice to be able to keep the Etsy shop open. I didn’t renew auctions on eBay so that wasn’t going the whole time I was gone.

When I did start feeling better after my trip, it was time to do some sewing for the family. Mom and I sewed about 5 dresses in about 3 days. Those were for my two nieces. I made them look-a-likes because I knew they were going to be together.

Now down to business. In the next few weeks, I need to get lots of towel tops sewn and the rest of my bags. I also have some ideas for a new project. I haven’t had time to try it out though.

I hope everyone is having a great summer!

Lovely as a Rose

I made an Etsy treasury list today! It took a long time, but it turned out pretty. It took longer because about halfway through I lost it and had to start over! 😦

Wish I could crochet such beautiful stuff! 🙂

Let me know what you think!
