I have been trying to get some work done this week.  I have made some progress. Here and there. Some shows and some does not.  I have found some things and lost some things. It seems to be a hopeless cycle.  I can have something IN MY HAND !! and NOT be able to find it 10 minutes later.  I have managed to get a few things finally posted to my THIRD ETSY shop.  I put some Christmas ornaments out here.  They are regular Christmas fabrics, my Mother and i made them when we were doing craft shows under Mary's Country Crafts.  Since we haven't done shows together since 1999, they almost are vintage now.  I will have some angel ornaments soon as I can get some angel hair ready and get my glue gun fired up. If I didn't have to do things like feed the hubby, wash clothes, run the dishwasher (I know ALL I have to do is load and unload it) all these LITTLE things do take time out of my day. I am getting old and while the energizer bunny is cottage pink, I ain't the bunny, not anymore.  Apparently I don't have the get up and go I used to have. It got up and went. Far away and didn't leave a forwarding address, a trail of breadcrumbs NOTHING!! So now all I can do "try to remember" (humhum remember the song). I remember when I would cut out 200 country aprons ( thats skirts, 4 ties, 2 pockets with matching lining, and a quilted bib for EACH APRON) all in ONE DAY.  And we quilted the bib, too ( was NOT purchased quilted fabric). I really used to be able to churn the sewing out, feed horses, exercise same horses, feed other animals, haul feed. etc,etc.
Wow makes me tired to think about it.  I still say that energy (like 3 yr olds have) is wasted on the young.  It is this old folk that needs it. All of it.  Any way here some pics of some of the Christmas ornaments and then some lavender sachets that I listed on my .

You all have a nice weekend, and I am going to try to get some more things listed and REST.
God bless all of you.
