Ready for a spew of

pictures?

My friend came over today to model some aprons for me. I think I ended up with mixed results...

We started off with the half aprons. The lighting was okay, not great, but not horrible. My original thought was to go outside but is was so windy I thought the house was going to blow over! I was having a hard time picking up some of the dark colors so I changed the focus setting on my camera. Only to have the full aprons come out a little too dark. Sigh! Will I ever learn?
I've tried monkeying with this one but I think I'll have to do it a little more. It's such a bummer when I was using a model other than someone in my household. I may just have to call them "good enough". ugh.This one wasn't so bad...

Then we moved onto some towels. I'm not sure if I'll use this one. I feel like I'm falling off a cliff and the towel is the last thing I'll ever seeeeee...


This morning I finally took some coaster pictures. I even got this set listed, imagine that!


Then I dug into the stack of magnets JB sent along with the aprons. She had them all backed on some pretty paper. I still have to try find the time to get them listed as well. (can you tell we love birds! ;) )


So much to list, so little time. I'm kidding, kind of. I'm still craving a chance to sit down to sew again. Tomorrow, tomorrow, there's always tomorrow.


My household is full of screeching kids at this moment. The 6 year old tickled the 4 year old so much she peed her pants (and is screeching about it), the 3 year old can't get his shoes on (and is screeching about it), the 2 year old want to go in the tub with her sister (and is screeching about it), the baby is overtired (and is screeching about it)....if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right? I think it's about time for their father to make his grand entrance, don't you? Hopefully he's not screeching too.


To top it off, the phone is ringing. (the 6 year old answered it and brought it over to me. He said, with a gleam in his eye, "It's someone who is already talking, can I just hit the end button?" I nodded my approval and with a huge cheese on his face, he hit the button with great gusto and sauntered back to the kitchen.)


Time to throw my hat in for the day. Sounds like my family needs me about now.
