Peaceful Day Full of Sewing

Lilly must have gotten on here and read Mommy's blog.

I sewed, sewed and sewed some more today and what did she do, you ask!

I shipped this cute little number off this morning. A fun custom order!
I think it's one of my favorites.
Which means... I want one.

Maybe one of these days.

She is Definitely A Yorkie!

I have come to the realization that Yorkies love attention more than anything.
Lilly gets asked daily, by me, "WHAT DO YOU WANT!"

I can't sew, watch TV, fold laundry - NOTHING! Without having 2 little black eyes staring straight at me.

Ignoring doesn't work. She'll just start making noises or bark at me.

It's worse when my lovely bf is gone traveling for work. Guess where he is right now? Gone.

So... I strap on my patience and try to sew, watch TV and fold laundry while having these 2 little black eyes staring straight at me.

I've come to the realization that I wouldn't want it any other way so I just deal and take several breaks to toss a toy or two.

Love her.

There's Always A Few Bumps in the Road

Things have been pretty crazy here lately. I had to go to Scottsville and stay with my mom for 2 weeks because all sorts of crazy police involved drama happened at my apartment 2 nights before Rickey had to leave for PA.

I was too scared and too much of a chicken to tough it out by myself with Lilly.

I enjoyed being at my mom's and being the majority of drama free.

Came home to a nice, quiet apartment with the disturbing neighbors gone for good.

I've been sewing and spitting out new things just as fast as I can. Trying to keep up with the pick up of sales I've had since I was featured on Etsy's front page.

Lilly keeps my nerves somewhat calm and me somewhat sane no matter how crazy things can get. I'm so thankful and believe undoubtedly that God brought me to her and her to me for that reason. I don't know what I would do without her.

She is the love of my life.

Omg, I'm ecstatic. I've been out fabric shopping all day and came home to many conversations regarding my most recent rag bag! was sweetttt enough to convo me to congratulate me on my feature on the front page!

This has made my day even made my week!

I started to get upset because I couldn't see the feature but I logged into and bam! there it was, waiting on me!

Ooh la la ahhhmazing.

It's Raining, It's Pouring...

Even though sales get slow, it doesn't stop me, I just keep sewing and keep buying beautiful fabrics! I love seeing new fabrics come out, I'm like a kid in a candy store. I've been working on a new style of a bag too and a few other things. Exciting, exciting!

Last night we came down to my mom's to stay since we've been having horrible problems with our neighbors. Rickey left this morning for Pennsylvania and I miss him tons!
It rained and rained last night, it finally stopped and we were shooting off fireworks at 11. Lillybug hated it, she didn't know what was going on.

I made this cute little number for Lilly... well, half made it. I bought a little newborn dress in the clearance baby clothes at Wal-mart for $3. Cut and sewed a little on it, took about 5 minutes and bam! She's such a dollbaby. (Don't pay attention to her huge toy mess behind her, I can pick them up and 2 seconds later she's whining wanting them back out.)
