Candy Cane

Yes, this month has been super busy and I've been super busy sewing aprons like crazy...I finished the 3 aprons I had going on for Thanksgiving, a Holiday Swap apron, my own Thanksgiving apron, and now just completed my last apron for another Holiday Swap...once again, the host was Sue at Country Pleasures. I had fun in the Fall Apron Swap and decided to give this one a try. And this is what I used for the holiday apron:

Poinsettias, Garlands, & Mistletoes, Oh My!

Oh boy, where do I start...I loved, loved, loved doing this apron for my fellow apron swap partner. As you can see, I had trouble waiting patiently to avoid posting this early. I truly wanted this to be a surprise but I just couldn't resist, Sorry!!!! I didn't want to let go of this apron...but I knew it was going to be enjoyed elsewhere.


We are back from a tummy-filled Thanksgiving feast that took place at my sister-in-law's out in the desert. We had turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, green-bean casserole and let's not forget the pumpkin pie...yum! We ate and ate and ate and ate till we couldn't eat anymore, literally, true story!

National Tie One On Day 2010

This month has been one busy month...I like busy! I'm in two Holiday Apron Swaps this month and if that's not enough, I've decided to participate in the National Tie One On Day for Thanksgiving. Here's how it works:

On the day before Thanksgiving, which this month it's the 24th, you give 3 different people (neighbor, relative, friend, or someone you don't know) a loaf of bread wrapped in an apron with a prayer or note tucked in the pocket. It's a kind gesture and it will make someones day. Is this great or what?

Laker Princess

Lakers, Lakers, Lakers...yes, basketball season has started! Home Runs are over and Slam Dunks are beginning.

Since I've been sewing everyone an apron, my daughter has been patiently wanting one. So I decided to make her a Laker themed apron since she is a Laker Fan...Kobe & Sasha are her favorite players.
