Inventory


My days are filled with inventory. Perhaps it will get easier for me. The second apron was a complete loss. I didn't like how the fabric hung at the skirt base so it has been chucked. Lesson learned.  I will no longer work with synthetic fabric unless I back it with interfacing.


This one...I love.


Gorgeous cotton feed sack blues.


Iron like the day they were spun and gracefully take the stitches of my machine.


A small hand towel billows over the straight skirt below it.


Pictures of the next one to come.
Inventory for a shop that will open later this summer. 

Thank you for all the sweet comments about my fail. It was such humor for my family last evening.

I will take both of them please! ;) I am so looking forward to your shoppe to open! They are both absolutely beautiful Renee! I am with you there on the inventory. Yesterday was a day of frustration, and wanting to give up on some new things. But, it is always a learning experience of what not to do again. :) Wishing you creativity and inspiration! ;) xo Heather

We learn every time we "goof", don't we?! I've got a pile of them, too, I can tell you!

LOVE, love, LOVE that sweet blue apron, Renee! Why don't you live near me so you can help me learn how to do all these wonderful things?!?!?

And your "divine fail" had me smiling--I've had those days, too!

SO excited you'll be opening a shop! What a big & wonderful step--I'll be waiting!

You're a treasure...

I agree Renee, this is my favorite apron, I think! It's so hard to choose. OHHHHH! Your nursery pillow! I've got so far to go to learn so many wonderful details. Always inspiring here! Have a lovely weekend! E

Can’t wait for your shop!

Nan said...

If I remember you will be opening an Etsy apron shop then. I wonder if you will also put in there some of the garage sale items you want to part with or can just do without? This blue apron is so lovely as you really really have an eye for fabric choices!! Love your sweet bully boy below with his ball, that is so funny how he adores his soccer balls oh he's a sweetie!!

Kathy said...

High-five on the new apron and BIGGER high-five that you cut your losses and tossed the one that didn't work out. I have a very hard time with doing that. I will keep trying to make it work until it totally harshes the whole experience for me. Throw it away, kathy, just throw it away....

This one is so cute! Sorry the other apron didn't turn out as you had hoped.
