I was thinking today as I was finishing my work for the day what I had accomplished.  When my boys come home from school they often will ask me what I did all day.   I usually say oh a little sewing, laundry, I had lunch with Mrs. so and so, and the list goes on.  I never really feel as if I accomplish a lot!  But as I looked at what I actually did, quite a bit got done!!      Even though I'm not working a 9 to 5 job outside the home, I still work hard!!  There has been a lot of buzz in the news lately about stay at home Mom's not working.  If you are a stay at home  Mom, or a Mom at all you KNOW you work hard!!  I do and I wouldn't have it any other way!!  I really do love my job!!!  I work hard and wouldn't have it any other way!!!

A Few Aprons...

I have been trying to design a new apron that is cute, but that fully covers ummm....women like me that are maybe a bit fuller on top!!!   I think this one will do the job!  I want to make the top tie wider and longer so that it ties on the side in the front.  Kind of like those adorable pillowcase dresses.  That would help to camoflouge those of us who are.....fuller!  I actually made the tie around the waist long enough to tie in front, but totally  forgot to tie it there!  So just imagine this with a cute red tie on the front!

My next apron was one I first started when Tanya Whelan's Darla first came out!   Let's long ago was that?  I'm too embarrassed to say!   I am trying to finish up some of those lingering projects.  I have NO idea why I waited so long to finish it.  I think it was stuck in a box after we moved last year.'s done and I have one less project to worry about and one more apron to wear!  I really love to wear aprons, don't you?  I wear them not only when I'm cooking, but also when I'm cleaning to protect my clothes.   

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!  After a VERY busy day and late night last night I am truly having a day of rest.    I'm exhausted!!!  I do believe a nap is in order.
