TRANSITIONS.......and reflections........

Hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...is anyone still checking??...Is this blog ON???...It has beeeeeeeeeen forever and a day since I posted....not to mention even having time to BLURF myself, and see what everyone else has been up to.....well...thats what happens when after over 22 years of staying at home....working OUT OF the home...then transitioning back into the everyday workforce does to you.......I feel like a butterfly making the transition.....its a whole new world!!.....And my job....at Lowes....I am sooooooooo LOVIN' IT!!.... SO,....what have I been up to in the STUDIO?.....Well....after the 22 year transition...I decided to revisit my first love of sewing...pulled out my most awesome faithful Bernina...and....jumped back into FABRICS again!....and it feels so good!!!.....After joining a few swaps...I am SEW ready to get some of my APRON creations....and other fabric goodies into my Etsy shop....so STAY tuned....& check back!
This first apron went to my swap partner who also lives in Tennessee...(how cool beans is that??)..Yummy fabrics from HL...mixed with a little Amy Butler...VINTAGE tea/dish towel ...TOPPED with a brooch from my dd JOY-FULL-NESS ( it matches!!!)...UBER cute!!

And this one.....from the same fabric....for another swap partner ( in AUSTRALIA!!)....I fashioned this using one of the Days of the Week VINTAGE Vogart towels from my stash....THIS is going to be something I will be creating for my ETSY shop....using my vintage stitcheries in Aprons....Bags....etc......

The possiblities are ENDLESS.....you should see my stash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And how about THIS yummy-ness???????????????....These uber cute MORSELS are PINCUSHIONS!!!.....One-of-a-kind little ( ya know I LOVE little) goodies...that will be in my ETSY shop .....Fun....& Funky......gotta have one???....Email me with your colors, and I'll do up something JUST FOR YOU!....Each comes with a couple of fun pins also...assorted glass beads attached to pearl head pins....

.......oh, and THIS one...is mine........yummy-licious colors....that turquoisey-blue is one of my faves....it IS The Bee Hive STudio color!
SO....in reflection.....altho, I am making the "butterfly" transition....my sewing and fabric is here to stay....but, I still will be creating PAPER crafts also......I cannot help myself.....and I have tons of projects in the works!
THANKS to all who keep checking in on me.....I will beeeeee back to visiting soon!!
Creative blessings,
Debbie

I was wondering if you took on electrical or plumbing as nonbloggable hobbies instead, lol. Glad to see you back!

I was beginning to worry, but figured it had to do with your new working schedule - LOL! Glad to see you back, your sewing is fabulous! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

Thank you soooo much. My apron arrived on Tuesday. I was gone to a church camp with my older daughters, but I told my youngest to go ahead and rip it open!!

It is so amazing and wonderful and I am just about speechless!

You are spectacular!!


May I use your pic of the apron to make a post about it, with lots of linky love to your ETSY shop?
