(Pincushion made out of tabletop grinder)

Decided I would put a few things in the shop this am,
 really quick, no fuss.

(more vintage grinder pincushions)
(I can't live without my 3 clamped to tables in the studio)


First the camera would not cooperate as it should, 
the yard was in complete shade, 
so I hauled it all back into the house.
Saw the photos were not so hot, but running out of time, 
so decided to upload anyhoot.
Blogger over at A Mare of A Different Color
would not let me do zip, so,
no quilts got listed...

(Vintage quilt)

then I tried getting pics of the last of my floraline,
(I sold off other half last year.)

But then a girlfriend called and bought a bunch ( YAY) 
so I have to retake pics of the pieces left anyway.

 I had to leave for an orientation for
some volunteering I have begun, then run some errands, where I dropped a glass candle in a shop and broke shattered it and then knocked over an end cap display and still managed to make the manager laugh... then grabbed some Cinco De Mayo grub from Chipolte and had 2 long wonderful chats 
with the NYC kiddos..

and now here it is very late, 
and I never did get anything
into the shop.
But it's all good.
Tomorrow is another chance to get 
it all together.

So if you see something of interest just ask, and 
as soon as I get blogger to cooperate over there,
 these, and some other goodies will get listed.
  Posting this in the am Friday.
Blogger has me scared to try anything tonight.
I'm walking on thin ice here folks,
it's still 45 minutes until tomorrow.

These are very cool...very creative and I think your pictures turned out beautiful! I try my best to pick the perfect spot, perfect lighting and perfect background, but it seems my pictures look better when I just snap away. Well, it works for me!

I hope you had a wonderful chiplotle dinner {love that place}. I cooked...ugh. I was exhausted!

Happy Mother's Day to you!

LOL, I know exactly what you mean. My gram had a kitchen wall covered with black iron 'hot pads' that had a picture and/or message on each one. That one was my favorite, The hurrier I go the behinder I get. I watched a show not too long ago that said we actually don't multitask well, we only think we do, that we actually get less done trying to do multiple things at once. I think that is part of my problem. :)

You are so funny!

I know the feeling! The more things I do today the more I remember that I've forgotten to do! This trip will happen one way or another!

Hope your tomorrow will be much better!

Good Morning Z
It is Mother's Day and I wanted to wish you a very special one. I hope you are going to do something fun today. The sun is shining through my window here in the computer room, it faces the east and that is enough to make me happy today. I volunteered to work the art gallery today, and then I will be going to my daughter's for a barbecue.
Hope you got your sync back from Friday and you are not breaking anything else :)
Blessings today!

Such a creative life you lead, z!!! And busy - I feel like I'm living life in slo-mo now... and wondering who that old lady is that keeps looking back at me in the mirror. Ha-haaa.

Wishing you a very Happy Mother's Day!!!
