Meet my Husband's Girlfriend!!

   Here she is, the girl that stole my husbands heart. I cant blame him, she has my heart too! Oh what joy a grandchild can bring. We never tire of the photos or stories! When she is fussing, I sing over the phone (and I don't sing well), then she starts to babble about her day to me. Too bad she lives in Japan!!
   In the first photo she is reacting to her first Apron, my daughter slipped it on her and she started to skip around in it. After that she was ready to cook, she had her spoon and helped with the stirring.
  Good days or bad they are always made better by our little Miss Emma. Best of all, we have 2 more grand kids arriving this year.
  Hope your life's are feeling blessed too.

Order, Growth and New Projects

I have gotten more organized and it is thrilling!!
Shawnee of is preparing a giveaway set of my Smocked Aprons Patterns including the fabric for the Apron.
We are slowly working on several new projects.
I am on new Rheum. Arthritis medicine and it is slowing me down.

But...having things in order is making slow Apron Lady growth easier.

I love walking into my office and finding things in their rightful places, easy to find - inspiring.
My goal was to organize, then pass more of my daily work to my employees. (So I could concentrate on improving my health).
Organizing has wonderfully brought me to a stronger place. At the end of the day it is easier to deal with pain, in a house of order. Who would have thought?? I am over seeing things right now, so we are getting more done.
Today I am freed up enough to do (or oversee) some projects with my daughter -as we are preparing for the arrival of a her first child.
Have a wonderful relaxing weekend!

Come Smock with us!

  Our new Smocking Aprons are seeing great success. They are so much fun! We have both a child's and an adult pattern.
The patterns include stitching photos and a huge dot grid for marking your Apron for Smocking.
I have to say working the smocking dot's is so relaxing and rewarding. As you see the smocking coming together it really pushes you to finish the project.
  I wish going to Market wasn't so physically demanding, I am still recovering. My doctors have a plan to boost me up, but unfortunately these plans usually knock me down before they lift me up.  Lucky for me my partner/husband and my sister Toni , and many other players keep things running smooth while my health sidelines me.
Happy smocking!
