Sheesh, it's the middle of May ... that's just not fair to give us frost on our plants.
So tonight, during Survivor commercials, I went outside to give my sweet little plants a blanket of protection with some old bedsheets. I brought in all my planters of impatiens and geraniums and petunias too. As long as it doesn't get windy and blow all the sheets off, they should be ok. Now the cherry tree ... I'm a bit worried about that.
I've finished up the pansy candle mat, finally. It's been tough trying to get sewing done while watching our grandson, so I'm really behind. I listed it on Ebay tonight.
I know Ebay has it's flaws but I've just the best customers anyone could ever hope for on Ebay. I've never once had any kind of problem with a single one of my buyers. (knock on wood)
I get kind messages quite often from people that just want to let me know that they really like a particular item. I am so touched that people will take that few minutes to send kind words and it just makes my day.
I have sent messages to sellers on occasion to let them know that I love their item or just to congratulate them on a really successful sale. I'm going to try to do it more often now though. I've been blessed with some pretty good sales but I've seen some sellers of beautiful handmade items sell for what could be slave wages. With the economy the way it is, sales have been slow and sometimes it does get discouraging. But just one kind message telling me that they love what I've done, just makes the discouragment completely disappear. I'm going to share that encouragement. During these tough times, kindness can make a big difference.
This is another set of pansy pincushions. I was going to list them but I ran out of time ... couldn't miss Survivor!
Tomorrow night, the Pittsburgh Penguins play the Hurricanes. Just to warn y'all ... the Pens will win. :)
Happy day everyone ... although it will be much happier if we don't have FROST in the morning!
