Friday, I got me some sun!

    It was very cold this sun.  It brought with it wind and cool air but I worked in it anyway, because that is how I am.

The french drains are completely cleaned out and hub's and I went to home depot last might for new french drain and ground cloth.  So we have the supplies to start putting it back together.  I can hardly wait, but first I must make a large pineapple cake for a boy scout dessert auction.  Then if I do my other chores I can play outside.  It looks a little overcast so maybe?

There are 8 wedding dresses in the shop right now.  2 are waiting for pick up, two have  been ripped and are waiting for me to baste, with fittings next week. One new one that just came in can be done next week.  I must wash the bottom of one and also soak another antique one in biz for a few days before I get started.  One is a friend of our youngest and her dress has been ripped but is waiting until she arrives home for wedding.  Another is waiting for skirt to come in.

I have prom dresses and business suits.  So all hard work yuck...

Anyway I am off to make a cake!

Have a great and productive day!



  1. How do people rip wedding dresses before the wedding?

    1. I was going to ask the very same thing!

    2. Ripping mean I have taken apart the seams that need to be altered. As in seam ripper it is a tailoring term. Sometimes ripping a garment can take as long as fixing it.

  2. Wow.. you do have your plate full.. I would be freaking out , if I had all that stuff waiting on me..ha I am making my daughter a prom dress for in April and it is stressing me already.. just got fabric

    Best wishes.. Hope it all goes smoothly.

  3. All I want to do is play in the yard!!

  4. I would much rather bake a cake than sew a business suit! You never cease to amaze me with your skills. I made a cake this week for the first time in ages. I had to make it twice because the first one was very SALTY!! Someone emptied the salt box into the sugar canister!!! Good thing I taste-tested it!
