Sewing for my Sanity

Do you have an escape? At the moment, mine is sewing.
No pressure, no co-workers, no-deadlines. Wish I could say no whining, fighting, sick kiddos,
but that's what I do have, in stereo, l-o-u-d and clear.
And of course, no paycheck either! The bright blue floral is going to be for sale, either at a craft show that Dana & I are considering, or at her new store, or if I can get better pix, maybe ebay or etsy. I just can't seem to find my niche to sell my stuff, kwim? Edited to add: When I'm sitting watching the girls at dance for a few hours a week, I know the moms are all over my stuff. Perhaps a trunk sale is my venue - literally - I can see me decorating the back of my husband's tank of a conversion van. I'll replace the sensible blinds with floral swags - there's plenty of room for a little ladies fitting room in there. Oh my goodness, he'd kill me, lol!

yup Kelley. These lil girls summer dresses should go like hot cakes. I'm thinking etsy & craft show, (where are you gals planning that at? Ive not heard tell of this)and Dana boutique. Ive not seen anything thing like these, not even Jackie Spicer has a halter dress for lil lady bugs, (I dont think she does).

Me Too! Me Too! A sew for sanity. Its my little escape.
The trunk sale idea sounds like fun. I love those aprons! (or are they little dresses?) I have that same blue dogwood tablecloth.

Cotton shirts.  Love 'em. Usually can't wear 'em.  Too tight. Pull at the boobs.  Or, shrink in the first wash.  And being a plu...
