I'm an early riser this morning. Patrick left before dawn, packed and ready to travel to Houston to visit his aunts. He said he's driving straight through. I requested he stop and walk around his car a few times. Still worry about that kid, but know he's all grown up and smart. I do pray for his safety every day. Funny, his aunts had a request for Gates Barbeque Sauce. I noticed a case was sitting on the table ready to be loaded in his jeep. That's my favorite sauce too!
The red bud trees are in their prime! So pretty to see the raspberry colored blooms mixed in with the spring green. I love the glory of spring!
I started making Peasant Tops to offer at the hand made shop. I sold the first one in a day! Don't you love that fabric? It's covered with tiny French dots. Now I wish that I'd purchased a bolt. Always happens. I should know by now that when a fabric screams out, by the bolt Jill! A young girl came in the shop with her mom and loved the blouse. It looked so cute on her. I'm inspired to make more simply by the bright smile that appeared on her face while she had it on. I should have taken a picture! The Peasant Blouses are going to be available at the shop in a variety of solid linen and cotton prints. The plan is to get several made so that once the downtown fashion show comes I will have some to model. I made a half dozen or so for myself! I'm also going to make little summer skirts to go with the Peasants.
New Blue Bell Soap. I really wanted to incorporate the color blue into the packaging. I had this vintage blue seam binding in my stash and thought it looked perfect with the blue label I created. Blue Bell is the first of a line of Botanical Blooming Soap!
The shop was busy yesterday and I anticipate a busy day today since it's the day before Easter. Lots of colorful soaps, lip balm, salts, and cremes to fill bunnies baskets.
Enjoy caring and sharing spring days.
