They’re done and that’s what counts

I’ve had a couple of “those” days this week.  It’s been a huge challenge to find the time and energy to sew.  But I did manage to finish and list the two aprons at Retro Femme for tonight’s stocking at 10 PM EDT.

The sewing wasn’t so hard, actually, but the picture taking was torture.  My camera batteries were low and I couldn’t find the spare set.  The sun kept hiding behind clouds.  I couldn’t get the exposure and colors “just right” for the black apron.  Finally, when I felt like the next thing I’d do would be to throw my camera through a window (okay, not really, but you know what I mean), I stopped and listed them anyway, icky pictures and all.  Hopefully, their true loveliness will show through, because they turned out just how I imagined them.  How cool is that!!

    

I’d thought about trying to pull something else together for tonight’s stocking, but it just isn’t going to happen.  It’s Easter weekend, I don’t have the eggs ready for the hunt tomorrow, the house is, well, a mess, dishes are waiting, and I have several custom orders to work on for next week. 

Whenever I can find a few minutes during the day, I’ll be listing the hairsticks at Etsy.  That will catch me up for my goal of listing 10 items at Etsy this week.

Have a great and joyous Easter!

  1. I love the aprons especially the dark blue one.
    I also find taking pictures frustrating. I decorated a very bright pink pouch purse and it came out very different! A bit deflating really after all the effort isn’t it? Still like the blue one though!
