Snow

We have snow here in Floyd.  The girls are very happy.   It was not a lot of snow but hopefully enough for snow cream later today.

I worked on aprons most of the day yesterday.  I made 4 little aprons and 2 adult size.  I made the adult one a little different and was able to get one child size and one adult size from one pillowcase.

I made the back much shorter.  It just comes over the shoulder and that gave me enough extra material for the small waist apron.

This one has a child one to match.  I didn’t take a picture of it because I didn’t get it completely finished yesterday.  I ran out of the white binding.

I was prowling around in the trunk where we store extra material the other day and found this veggie tales material.  There was not a lot of it but enough to make these two little aprons.  I think they are very cute.    Anyway, that was my day yesterday.  I wanted to make a few different styles of aprons to kinda get an idea for what sells the best. 

I cooked a deer roast on the wood stove yesterday for supper.  We had baked potatoes,  home canned green beans, fresh homemade rolls and home canned applesauce for supper.  It was very good.  I think today I will shred the deer roast and have deer bbq and fries.  I already have buns baking as I type this.  I made a buttermilk chocolate cake the other day so that will be our dessert.  It all sounds pretty easy.  There was not church today because of the snow so I think today is a take it easy kind of day.  I will leave you all with one more snow picture.

Enjoy your day and God bless.

What I’ve Been Up To

I thought I would show you all the aprons I have made up so far.  This one is made from an old pillowcase.

The rest of these are just from material I had on hand.

I’ve been working on making some waist aprons. 

100_8789

I think I like making them.  Something different for me anyway.

This is next to the last one.  It has a little girl apron that matches it.

Ain’t it cute?   I think I would like to make more of the matching mother/daughter aprons.  It was fun.   Well, that’s all for now.    Hubby is painting the first chair as I am typing this,  so hopefully,  I’ll be posting a picture of it tomorrow.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

A New Apron

I thought I would show you all a picture of the apron I just finished today.  I think it looks so cheerful.  My friend, Vicki, found this pillowcase at a thrift store last summer.   I think it turned out really nice.  I like using old pillowcases  to make aprons.  They have a vintage look and the cost of material is greatly reduced.   My aprons have not sold as much in the fall and winter as they did in the summer.  I hope to make up quite a few this winter to have on hand for the upcoming summer.  

The girls went to the Horn’s yesterday to celebrate Bubby’s birthday.  They had a great time.  Hubby and I went to C-burg to get tires put on the car so I had to miss Bubby’s cake.  Our church collects fleece throws, lotion and socks for our local nursing home.  The pastor’s wife meet us in town so we could deliver them.  Today we have cleaned out the chicken house (YUCK!)  The temperature here is mid 30’s.  Not too bad.  I know it could be lots colder.  

Tonight’s menu is hamburgers on homemade buns, home fries and peach dumplings for dessert.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

Apron

Well, ladies, I finally finished the apron I was working on.  This is the one I told you all I was making from an old pillowcase.  I think it turned out really well.  I am looking forward to making more aprons from pillowcases.  Now I need everyone’s opinion.  I always pin these little tags on my aprons.

So now I am wondering what to say on the aprons made from old pillowcases.  I think it would be neat for people to know their apron was made from an old pillowcase but then I’m not sure and if I did how would I word it?   I would appreciate your ideas on this.

Have any of you ever seen a mushroom that looks like this?   Hubby was mowing around the pond and found this one.  We have never seen one before.  It is definitely strange looking.

Anyway, here is Shadow doing one of his most favorite things.  He doesn’t swim but he certainly loves to wade in the pond.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Apron

Here is a picture of the apron I just finished.  I am hoping to take it to the Bread Basket today.  I am working on another apron that I am making from an old pillowcase.  I will take a picture of it when it is finished.    We have been busy with school this week.  It seems to be going pretty well.  I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies because school is just not school without cookies-or so I have been told.  We have had fairly nice weather here this week.  I think though rain is in the forecast and cooler temps.  We’ll see.  Well, it actually started to sprinkle as I typed this, so the girls and I had to make a run out to the clothesline to get them off before they got too wet.

It is corn cutting time.  For several weeks, this is a familar site here on the farm.   They started cutting above the house this morning.  Well, our lunch break is over.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
