Yesterday was such a fun day for us. We decided to take the girls to the movies as part of their Christmas gift. As we very seldom go to the movies, this was a big treat. We found (thanks to our friends, the Horns) a movie theater that is affordable and family friendly. We watched The Chronicles of Narnia-Voyage of the Dawn Treader. It was a very good movie and we all had a great time. Grace has read the book and Julie is in process now of reading it.
Also, as my aprons are now being sold in a local store, I thought it would be nice to try out some different patterns. I had been told it would be nice if I could do matching aprons. One for Mom (or MawMaw)and one for a little girl. I found a pattern I like pretty well. Here is a picture of it.
Not exactly what I was looking for but a good place to start.
This is the material I picked out. The floral will be the main material and the striped will be the contrasting material. What do you all think? I am having difficulties with my sewing maching, so pray I can get it up and running soon. (Could be the operator, who knows!) Anyway, I am excited to start a new project and upping my abilities. I have not made many things from a real pattern. Usually, its something I just figure out on my own or I alter the pattern so that it fits my abilities. Sally, our pastor’s wife, has agreed to help me if I get in over my head. I don’t think I will though. It looks pretty easy on paper. I will show you the finished results when done.
I think I’ll go check out my machine. Take care and God bless.
Oh how fun to take the girls. I was looking into that this morning.
I like the aprons. I have made my girls some for their hope chests. I should make a couple more for them. I have three and I do use them all.
We are having more snow today, over 3 inches. We will stay home tonight from church.
I have heard so many moms talking about how much they really enjoyed the movie. We might try to take ours to see it during the Holidays.
I love the fabric and pattern. I think they’ll look great together. I have a spron pattern I have been meaning to get to and make. Hopefully this winter I can do that.
I hope you have a great week 🙂
Those are great patterns and I love the fabric too. Glad you made it to the movies to see Narnia. Maybe we will get to go together sometime too.
I love the pattern and the fabric! I think it’s wonderful that you can sell at a local store! May the Lord bless your work!
Have a lovely Tuesday,
