weekly newspaper to find a new apron pattern.
She was so proud of her new aprons.
They were as important to her as a new dress.

Obviously I underestimated Etsy.
Yesterday morning, armed with the energy only 5 cups of Breakfast Blend coffee can give a girl, I happily uploaded a few pictures to my Etsy site and clicked "finished". It was my first day on Etsy, and I'd made two aprons and several other items ... herbal eye packs... hand knitted 'house helpers', etc., and figured that would hold the shop several weeks. I got up from the computer and danced around a bit, then came back a few short hours later to check my email.
God is good, my friends. And aprons sell. Obviously I underestimated all of them: God, aprons, and Etsy!
I've been to the post office three times already, sending packages to California, Arkansas, and Wisconsin. (Wisconsin!) I hurried home from this Monday night thing our church is doing and sat down at the sewing machine again. This apron... which I'm calling The Emma Apron because of the name of the fabric pattern... was born about midnight.
This God, apron, and Etsy stuff can be very, very addictive. I'm having to remind myself this morning that I do, in fact, have a real life job that I better show up for. Ha-rumph.
But alas, it is Tuesday, my hands-down best day of the week. I guess I better trip on over to work (stopping by the post office first, of course!), and make myself useful until Gilmore Girls comes on tonight.
Or until the sewing machine and coffee pot call my name. Whichever comes first!
Happy Tuesday! - Brin
