Aprons, aprons, aprons,...Farmers market preview for April 26th

Aprons!! I am trying to make more , they do take lots of attention , I just get so wrapped up in making each one I forget that I need to make more than one a week; anyway I hope to make at least one more this week. Here is the first it has that sweet calico garden print I got in Wimberly as the smock and a raw silk as the skirt.

I made the flower pattern after one of the flowers in the print.

I used all green vintage buttons on the pocket and the smock from the stash the uncle gave us!(thanks CG)

here are a few pix of my others but they are already happy in someone Else's home( i did not even get a chance to post photos of them before I sold them)

I also have some new boy shorts size 2t( i had to make 2 pair one for Burger and one for the market)
hope to
see you at the Market!!!

A look at the garden...

We are slowly getting the tomato plants in the ground.
I have been very neglectful because of the Farmers Market. However I did manage to pant my cukes and some bush beans as well as some more basil and nasturtiums about 2 weeks ago. The beans and the cukes have sprouted and are so cute.

These are the baby cukes

these are the baby bush beans

I can't wait for cukes! They grow so fast and do so well here , I always have way more than I know what to do with.( so locals let me know if you like cukes) I use like a pickling variety that I got from Callaghan's General store. Look how teeny that tomato plant looks in that big ole' cage....just wait they won't even fit in the cages by the end of the summer.

I heart romance

me and daddy made a getaway for our 3 year anniversary.

It was truly wonderful and I have beautiful hill country wildflower photos to prove it.

Thank you donda cinda and paps for making it all possible, we love you dearly. Here are a few more of my favorite photos for our little trip. We were in Wimberly, Texas at a B & B called Southwind . It was very secluded and simply perfect for our excursion. The cabin (we had our own)was nestled in the hill country woods and looked like it was made from the cedar they cleared for the cabin lot.

I wore a special skirt I made for our afternoon drive up there
The beginning of sunset, on a field, down the wrong road...
cypress creek in downtown Wimberly.... so pretty ,and the weather was perfect( I am even wearing jeans)
