I Love Homemade

Pearadise
Finding joy in the simple pleasures of life.


My English peas are doing great despite the heavy snow we had last week.
All’s good.

There are a couple of new items in my Etsy shop. One is the apron I mentioned earlier. I made it from a vintage bed sheet and I think it turned out beautiful. After a major battle with my sewing machine we sat down and had us a good talking, cleaning and oiling session and all’s good there now! Thanks to Paula at Simply Unique for her advice on how-to-talk to your machine and get results! It worked…

Here’s a peek~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
EDITED TO UPDATE 8:35 pm
I'VE ALREADY SOLD THE APRON!!!!!!!!!


Now go on over to the Etsy,
the place for all things homemade and vintage,
and take a gander at my other things.
You’ll find the widget thingy on my sidebar.

FYI for those of you who love to read
Check out this webby I found for good used books. 
There are no shipping charges to the U.S...swoon......
I ordered 8 books from here...all hardback because I love that.
Each book was less than $4.00 and in very good condition!

Sending some Love your way....

It sounds like your machine had a bit of an attitude, I am glad it finally listened to reason! Your apron turned out beautifully, no wonder you sold it so quickly!
