Hello everyone out there in Blog Land! This is a picture of me last year at Yankee Stadium, the one and only time I ever went to the original House That Ruth Built. What a great time I had! My friend and I ran screaming down the ramp like little kids. We ate hot dogs and peanuts, rooted for the home team and watched Derek Jeeter play live. It was swell. I don't know what team the Yankees were playing - I think they lost, but we stayed to the end and took the subway back to her father's house in the Bronx. It was a classic baseball night at Yankee Stadium. I wanted to be able to say I was in the original Yankee Stadium - they've torn it down now and built a new stadium across the street. I hope someday I will go there, too, but with ticket prices so exorbitant who can afford to? Even the bleachers are prohibitive. So now I watch them on TV and sew. I have TONS of cloth and I make tablecloths, bedspreads, baby blankets, aprons - whatever seems the most suitable for the particular cloth I'm working on. That's a picture of the kind of thing I make, up there. This is my first blog and I haven't mastered the art of placement and pictures, so please bear with me as I stumble through this exercise. Harumph - this isn't as easy as it looks.
The picture of my tablecloth should appear HERE, and not at the top, but 1/2 hour later it is what it is. I sell my things on www.etsy.com which is a wonderful place for handmade beautiful things made by extremely talented and competent craftspeople. I urge everyone to check out this website, and while you're there, you can look at customdesigns4ubynan to see my stuff. I'd really appreciate all the promotion I can get, and I thank you from my heart and mind for reading this blog and visiting etsy.
Love to everyone,
