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.

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.
