Yesterday I only got four aprons completed. I cut out 13 new bags. I ran my errands, then in the afternoon a friend came over for a visit. Later we had family movie night. We watched "Over the Hedge" for the first time. I have to finish those aprons today. I am running out of time. I have to have everything tagged and turned in by Tuesday. Tomorrow is church, Tuesday night is Family Fun Night, and Wednesday we have to drive up to U.Va. My husband has a doctor's appointment there.

I loved the material I used for this apron. I tried to lay it so you could see the bottom of the apron. It has a nice scalloped edge.







I couldn't forget the men. Here is one of the Bar B Q aprons I make for men. I am also making some out of Nascar material this year.

















This is one of the bags finished with a snap on it. I like this material combination. You can't see so well in this photo, but the centers of the flowers on the base of the bag are ringed in black. I thought that went well with the black snap.













Last, a picture of my new chairs. Today is my birthday and this is what the General gave me for a present. They recline back, but do not rock. We had two rocking recliners in the Living room. We have three children. Rocking Recliners and small children equal banged up walls.

Sew Long for Now!

Happy Birthday - one day late. I'm sure you were thrilled over your new chairs! I love getting new things for the house for my birthday, too. Enjoy your birthday weekend!

Happy belated birthday! You've been getting a lot done in addition to the normal everyday things that need to get done. I hope you have a good trip and a nice break from the machine. And I hope you sell it all! Although that would mean that you'd have that much more to sew...

What a nice gift, those chairs.
