Today is actually the "official" day of my retirement. I have retired from my day job. My last day was actually Friday. Thus I am starting a new chapter in my life.
Recently it was Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day. I did enter a few of the giveaways and I actually won one. Yaay! My win came from Aunt Polly's Porch. I won a lovely layer cake of Hemming House by Moda. And it came with a book "The Sweet Life" by Anka's Treasures.
I have lots of yard work that I need to do -sigh! That will slow down my creative time for a few days. I have some volunteer trees that need dug up. My decorative bushes need pruned severely! And I am going to start doing my own lawn again since I will have a lower income and can't really afford to have it done now.
I was going to show my roses which have been blooming but it appears I was a bit late. So the one picture I took got the photoshop treatment to make it look better.
I have a volunteer magnolia that sprung up in my compost pile. It is in a good place so I will not be digging it up. Last year it had one bloom. I am hoping for several this year. The magnolia is as tall as I am!
I have sewn a few more chemo caps and turbans but I didn't photograph them. Tomorrow is delivery day for the ones I am taking to my aunt.
See you soon - unless I get lost in the weeds -either literally or figuratively! Ha ha.
