Boring

Did you ever read The Most Boring Blog in the world?…It was hilarious. I feel like that. I have nothing worthwhile to say. Noteworthy today….I bought Organic Ketchup. It tastes tangier. I don’t like tangy. I paid three time as much to have the one element I hate multiplied. I also bought t-bone steaks. I am… Read more »

Learning New Skills

If you have a business and no money to pay a big staff to tend to all your needs, you end up learning skills on utube or picking the brains of others who have stumbled along the path ahead of you. I have two crashed computers. I lost all kinds of information in them. But I… Read more »

Wedding Aprons

Wedding Aprons are the way I stop the heartache I feel for missing Wedding gowns. Let me drown in my studio amidst laces, satins, organdy and ribbons. I will make the dress form pretty and dressed up. I hope they sell well as I could spent my life very happily making this collection forever.  

More Saved Photos of Firsts from the studio

My first Vermont Apron Company Apron, the beginning of a very fun collection.   The Beginning of the Hat collection; the first hat, at the first show on the first Styrofoam head. The first hat that I ever made where I blended both knitting and crocheting. The First Carpet Bag I ever made. It was… Read more »

You can feel it sometimes, like water sweeping gently over you; life, it can move that way, it can move with such force, it nearly takes your breath away.
