How does she do it...?



It is Monday Morning and it seems like I have had a week of MONDAY MORNINGS..
The excitement is there, and my schedule is so full it is intoxicating.

JULY is peaking around the corner, and I have some stitchings to complete.
Our JULY paper lady was not as cooperative as her other MONTHLY PAPER LADIES...
Cori and I both had issues with the  original sketch...WE both had done her 3 times
and she just was not what we were expecting..


SOOOOOOOO like anything else, when one plan does not work out
you work the PLAN till it does.... 

How does she do it...?


I will keep Muffin to LOSE blog updated with information 
that will have you questioning what is happening to waistlines, 
diseases and most of all your ENERGY.


And before I get one more email to this question
"do you ever sleep?"

No problem there, on average I get 7-8 hours every night...
My mind would not be so sharp if I did not, 
if I did not begin each day with a dense muffin, ( which by the way has been
my regimen for over 7 years, every day) I could never outperform myself each day..




Although I have lot's of paper work and labels to get on packages today, 
I also have scheduled in some stitching and sewing ...

This is what JULY will be looking like so far...
Another Vintage Hankie that is full of wondrous possibilities...
This was another of my Nanny's hankies... it was a shame keeping
her in a shoe box...She looks so much prettier as a mini dress...
I cut one this hankie in half, and then strips to make a wee ruffle for her 
top of her dress and I even made a rosette for her waitline.
I have more fabric for her bow in her hat too..

She is all pinned down at the moment but within hours I will have 
sewed her down with some INVISfil this amazing almost
invisible thread that has been such a joy to stitch with....


Must run, I have a new business card to design this am...
will show it to you later....
The sun is peaking out today, after days of rain,
but nothing could damper my day, 

YOU ARE HERE...

p.s I noted my daisies are springing up this morning...pics soon!

You Matter

  7. Your choice of floss is a perfect match for Nanny's hanky! Could use some of your rain and cooler weather, it will be over 100 all week. If that is not bad enough, night time temps will be in the mid 70's!

  8. Love how the hanky pattern creates an "apron". So creative. I am off to read about the muffins. That "never ending craving" thing rings a loud bell with me.

  9. She is going to be gorgeous Samm! Love that hankie dress, she is very beautiful with her cute ruffles. Can't wait to do this one up in needle-turn which I will be starting today. So glad you are sharing your secret - the muffin...how on earth could I ever keep up with you if you hadn't? You are still doing much more than I am with the dawn of this new adventure. I can only imagine the work load coming once everyone discovers this aaaamazing muffin! xx
