Is It JuNe-U-aRy?

I took these two photos the morning of how dark and dreary it is outside..and now it is raining and kind of chilly..a friend from church had a fire going this morning and she put a nice potpourri in a pot with cloves and such and her kids were running around singing Jingle Bells...My husband said it felt like Juneary..not really feels like winter and almost need a fire doesn't feel like summer in our neck of the woods..oh well..would rather be a bit on the cool side then sweltering in the heat..
Yesterday my friend who is going on her pioneer trek asked me to help her out and make the aprons for her and her 2 daughthers.. I didn't follow the pattern as I have been making aprons lately and they are pretty basic..I finished the 3 up in like 4 hours..the embroidery took the longest I think..
I embellished one of the pockets on each of the aprons..I found out what color the dresses were going to be and I embroidered the first inital on it..the above is Melissa's..

Her youngest daughter Sara
and Lastly L for Lia..I did a blanket stitch on the pockets..they were a lot of fun to make..she is going to give me the pattern for the bonnets.. I can't wait..Well I am fixing the hubby a great big steak for dinner along with mashed tater and some sort of veggie....nice quiet day for relaxing as the weather is keeping us inside..I hope all dads are enjoying their day..My dad has been gone for 23 years I can't believe its been that long...So anyway I hope you are enjoying your Sunday with loved ones.:)

  2. Mandy said they're have big rainstorms over at her place, honey. We've had a rain today but most likely we'll get your storms over here soon.

  3. Send me some of that weather!
    It has been about 97 with the
