Another Finish!

I have another finish to share :). This one is Alpine Garden by The Drawn Thread. I started it a few years ago and in an effort to get some of my WIP's under control I finished it and got it framed. I have put Royal Roses by Just Nan in it's place in my rotation. This one was a class project from many years ago that I never finshed now I am happy to say I have only 3 sections left on it too. Should I reward myself with a new start?? or finish up another???

On the sewing front for my Etsy shop I found a really cute new apron pattern and am going to go gather up my materials and get started on a new apron. Keep an eye out!!!

Okay so I was very disappointed yesterday :(. I was working on a new Mommy and me apron set for Chritmas, the fabric is black with Christmas candy all over it. It also has a fade line straight down the middle of the apron. I was done sewing the inside and had turned it over to work on the pockets when I noticed the flaw. The fabric was a one time buy so now I have to start over with a new piece of Christmas fabric. Oh well, I have alot more cute Christmas fabric to work with.

Getting ready for the holiday's

I, Mary K, pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I've learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!

Now to get to work :) I have some cute new fabric to try out!!!!!
