National Coffee Day!

I am a Coffee Addict! To my surprise, I just found out yesterday that September 29th is National Coffee Day! Oh my...and why didn't I know this before? I did have my cup of Joe in the morning like usual. And yesterday evening I made a special trip to buy a pie and have some coffee with it...

I participated in the Fall Apron Swap over at Country Pleasures by Sue. It was so hard for me to be patient on NOT posting this sooner, since I didn't want to ruin the surprise to my fellow Apron Swap Partner. Halloween was the chosen theme for this apron and boy did I have fun sewing this! I love Halloween, so I was really excited on making this apron. And after seeing the final product...I wanted to keep it, but I knew it had to be sent to it's new owner...

Wipes In Disguise

Last week, my brother's girlfriend asked me if I could be creative and disguise some baby wipe containers for a baby shower gift she needed. And of course I said "Sure"! Haven't done it before but there's always a I couldn't just make them and not blog about them...

Warm Apple Cider

I had fun participating in The Circus theme over at Tie One On. Great Circus themed aprons by all the participants and lots of thanks for the kind comments given to my Circus apron. The new theme this time is Apple Cider...mmm, warm apple cider! Totally fits the Fall Season...fall colors and lots of red came to mind on this apron. And here's what I came up with...

What About Me?

I received a complaint from a family member when she found out I had made aprons to other fellow family members. Grandma Olga is my kids Great-Grandmother who is loved by her 7 kids, 20+ grandkids, and 30+ great-grandkids. When she found out about Connie's apron, she said: What about me? I found the perfect pattern for her very own apron...

Pretty In Pink

My friends daughter is turning "1" this week and her party is this weekend. Amanda is one of my few friends that loves to bake. She's obsessed with the point where she drives out to L.A. to stand in line for over an hour to get a cupcake from Sprinkles. Crazy! Her craziness was my inspiration to making her daughter, Baby Isla, her very first apron...

The Circus

I came across a blog a few days ago by Amy called Tie One On and she posted an apron theme: The Circus. I was interested in participating, but I wasn't sure if I would meet the deadline (September 5th) and this would actually be my first apron submission to participate in winning a Book Giveaway. So I said "What the heck!! Why not, right?" And so I did! I wanted this to be colorful since bright colors was the first thing that came to mind.

My kids started school this week. My son in Kinder and my daughter in Second, how time flies. Now that they're both in school, I have time to do chores, laundry, grocery shopping, etc., etc. with no hurry! I will miss my summer of: "mom, mom, MOM!", "mom, I'm hungry!", "mom, I'm thirsty!", "mom, I'm hungry!" again, "mom, she hit me!", "mom, he hit me!" and I could just go on and on and on...but I do miss my Stinkers!
