A herd of aprons!

The June gallery is up for Tie One On. So many awesome aprons! I'm so sad that I didn't get mine done. I think I'll have to make it anyway because it really does exist in my mind as if I HAD made it. Although I saw many that had elements that I wanted for my apron, none were really that close. I must make my apron!

The theme for July is Pink Lemonade. How yummy does that sound? I know almost exactly how I want to work it, but whether or not I can find the fabric I want remains to be seen...

We hosted a barbeque on the 4th. 72 back breaking hours of yard and housework to get ready for a five hour party. Honey sprained his ankle on the 23rd so guess who got to do the mowing and edging? Quarter of an acre! Hey, this is a big deal for a girl who has lived in apartments for the past 22 years! Sunburn, mosquitos, muscle aches, oh my! (It was a fun party, though!) I feel like I've been doing a lot of recovery since the party, but not much crafting. Actually, we are in the process of fixing our air conditioner too. 100° and no central air! Waahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okey-dokey, crying over. So many people in much worse circumstances than me. I don't speak much of my faith, but Londoners are certainly in my prayers today and in many others' prayers as well. And I don't want to get political on my blog either, but how do these terrorists think that violence and killing are going to get them what they want?

  1. I am still in shock. I had caffeinated insomnia last night and went to bed just before the second incident. I completely bought the first news story about it being an accident and that has fed the shock, I think.

    As far as aprons go, I have the fabric and no inspiration for oddness. I may end up with something rather normal. Ho-hum.

    Congrats on the mowing. I don't have the strength of character for it and it looks like others in my family are similarly lacking. I don't want to hire another gardener after the last one ripped out all of my flowers (including my grandmother and great auntie's roses) by mistake.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
