Well, I finally finished this one. I’m not sure I like the contrasting material with it. What do you all think? I have a little girl pattern already cut out to match this one and a doll pattern. So like it or not, this set will have to be this way. Thanks again to Grace for being my model.
So now I want everyone’s opinion. Which apron pattern do you all like the best? Which one do you think most likely to sell?
Temperatures have warmed up quite a lot here. Low 40’s today. I think there is a chance for snow tomorrow and Tuesday. Church was very good today. I had the Jr. Worship class. My lesson was about fear and how to deal with it. It was a pretty good lesson. They are a good group of kids, very attentive and well behaved.
I finally finished the apron using one of the new patterns. What do you all think? I think my other apron pattern was a lot easier and faster but I know it is time to step it up a notch. My thanks to Grace for modeling for me. I used some material I already had to practice on. I’m not sure I like the rick rack, though. I have another pattern to try and then I will decide which one I want to use for the matching mother, daughter, doll aprons.
No church today due to bad weather conditions. Dave, Jess, and boys did get to come yesterday however the wind came also. It was just too cold for Daniel to play in the snow. Wind chills below zero. We had a good visit though. I made fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and homemade rolls for “lupper”. For those of you confused by this term, this is when it is too late for lunch and too early for supper. We also had cushaw pie for dessert with whipped creme.
Now I must tell the story of why we had fried chicken for lupper. Earlier in the week, Jess had mentioned she would like to have fried chicken. As I knew they would not get to stay long, I thought something a little faster would be better. I decided on hot roast beef sandwiches with green beans. They called when they were on the way here and she jokingly said David would have liked fried chicken too. This conversation was on speaker phone. Hubby overhearing about the fried chicken, which happens to be his favorite meal, said “Oh, I didn’t know fried chicken was an option”. By this time I am feeling a little out numbered so I decided to give in and make the chicken. It was a wise choice. Everyone enjoyed the meal and that makes this mama’s heart happy.
Today we are getting back into the swing of school. We had too many errands yesterday to start. We also visited some with the Horn’s yesterday. For Christmas, the Horn girls had received a kit from Wal-Mart to make a little girl apron and a little doll apron. I took some interfacing over and Vicki and I traced out the pattern. So I now have a little doll apron pattern to make. I want to make a mother, daughter, and doll apron to match.
Temperatures here are much nicer than they have been however yesterday morning was pretty cold. Temperature yesterday was 14 when we got up but it did warm up nicely with lots of sunshine. Cloudy today though, of course, because I am home and could hang our clothes on the line today. Oh well, thats how it goes. Hubby worked on getting some more wood yesterday while the girls and I ran errands.
Tonights menu is something I really don’t have a name for. I brown hamburger meat, add onions, cabbage, and potatoes. The options are limitless as to what you can add. I sometimes add fresh peppers, zucchini, squash, mushrooms. I like fresh baked cornbread with it. I got some cushaw from the freezer this morning. I think I will make a pie for dessert.
This is my first little girl apron. I made this one for my granddaughter, Alexius. I am sure there are many things I did wrong as I am just learning how to read patterns. Most of the time, I did not know what the pattern was telling me to do so I just figured it out my way and did it. I used some old material I had, just in case I messed up. I thought it would be better to practice some with the new machine.
Temperatures are very cold here again. Wind chill this morning was -10 degrees. The wind has been whipping all day, gusts up in the 50 mph range. Our snow is now blown into 2-3 ft drifts. The predictions are, though, for it to warm up by the weekend. I certainly hope so.
I think I will go work on another apron pattern. This time, I think I will try the pattern I am wanting to make to sell. I need to practice on it some and besides I can always enjoy a new apron. Take care and God bless.
