Staying Busy

Who has time to smell the roses... I'm lucky to get them watered. I love the lilies. they smell wonderful all you have to do is walk by or in my case run by... The roses are great too, but did you notice they need dead headed?

I'm getting excited for the show at Diane's her business name is Molly Mo's . It looks like we are going to have beautiful weather I can use the umbrella for shade or if we have a sudden change in the weather, it could always work to keep the rain off. That is always a possibility in Oregon...

I've been using my serger to put the ruffle on the umbrella. It is so much more fun than ruffling the "old fashion" way. I always break the thread and it make me crazy.... My cousin Judy sent this fantastic piece of equipment to me about a month ago and all I want to do is serge... I used it on the purses and the aprons and anything else I can think of. It makes me a little nervous though because the cutter is serious business once it's cut it's gone and there is not a lot of room for error... Serging is not for the nervous type.
I love the umbrellas. The ribbon flaps in the breeze and its just a really fun addition.
I still plan to make little seat cushions for the chairs. They will be simple just a little cover made with an old curtain that ties it all together. I should have taken a picture of the fabric I laid it on the seat so you could get the idea.

I'm sure there is a way to move these pictures around or even delete them but I can't figure it out and I need to get back to work. The picture of the flowers was to be on top but just use your imagination...
Pretend I know what I am doing!!

I took some pictures of the tool boxes I have painted and I'm ready to embellish, will add them later so you can see the progress. However, if I don't get going there will be no progress...
