A New and Expensive Week

We had a very busy week around here. I barely got any sewing done for the business because the world conspired against my plans 🙂 Despite that, Cowgirl had a really successful show. She even had the vending fee waved because the arena was short staffed and asked her to run the show pen gate. […]

What? September?

Are you freaking kidding me? I haven’t posted since September?!? Gosh, I’m sorry.

I’m never around with a camera to take a picture.  Cowgirl […]
