Contacted my swap partner!!

Shawnee did a super job matching me up with Becca O from North Dakota!! We have e-mailed back and forth and have a little more info on each other! Becca has a Boxer named izzie and I have a Boxer named rocco. LOL!!!

I have picked out a few fabric choices, and as much as I would like to share those choices, I would like to keep them secret just a little bit longer. I had intended to make my own design of the ruffled apron, but my Mother talked me out of it for this apron...OK, I know what the issue is...I just don't like to use ready made patterns. It has to be my own original pattern. I promise I will make it pretty!!

I worked in the yard this morning, mowing the back yard, and what else...WEEDING! Oh how I hate to weed these gardens when it is so hot!!

My daughter and her family came over for a BBQ, and her first born Tony has a garden in my back yard. He is growing pumpkins, green peppers and Sunflowers!! We went out to water, turned the water on, and out of know where, the sky let loose of a storm so quick, that we got completely wet before we could get back in. Just crazy! But lots of fun none the less!!

Just as soon as I can, I will post some pictures of my gardens...then you can see all the weeding that still needs to be done!! LOL!!

Hugs, until the next time!

I have been weeding my garden since dawn this morning. I have put in about 7 hours and will now call it quits for the day! After a quick bath I will start planning the design for Shawnee's Apron Swap! I have been thinking about it for two days now, and I am pretty sure what it will look like when completed. However, I have to wait now for swap partner info for colors, favorite collections, etc... The waiting is the hardest part for me, anyone else feel the same?

There is a storm brewing from the West. Lots of thunder, and a few drops of rain. This will make for a good sewing session this afternoon!!

I hope this time around I will have a partner assigned to me that loves to sew, and will put in all the time required to make me a beautifully constructed apron.

Until the next post!!!!!!

Shawnee's new Apron Swap!!!

I am happy to say I have signed up for Shawnee's new swap!! Looking forward to sewing for fun again!! That is what swapping is all about, right!! Aside from making new friends, sewing for others is a way to open your expressive creativity and share it with someone you have never met!!
