Baby update...

I just thought I haven't shown a recent picture of my newest grandbaby in a while. This is a picture from Thanksgiving, isn't he adorable...especially with his grandma holding him. He is such a happy little guy.

Here is his 6 month picture, too cute!

Hello Wine....

So I'm on this diet....been doing this for a while now and I must say it is all worth the sacrifices. And while I'm on it I must refrain from lots of things, like sugar, carbs and WINE! I was just looking through some pictures I took over the last few months and I ran across this one. So I will just admire from afar.......hello understand, right?

Speaking of my diet, here is a collage I put together last summer of a few before/after pictures. Just thought I'd share a little bit of my progress, can you see any difference?

Just stuff

I've been messing with some crocheting lately too, just passing the time. Here are some of the things I have made. Some hats

And I made these headbands. I thought they would look cute if I added some bling, so I'm working on that. The gray one is a bit hard to see. I should have taken a better picture, sorry.

And I made this cute ruffle scarf. I made one just like it for my daughter for Christmas and also a pink one, which I forgot to take a picture of both. I'm not doing so good remembering the camera lately!

Back at the sewing machine

Well the holiday season is over and I'm back doing some of my favorite things. I was asked to make a set of aprons for a mommy and daughter. I found some cute fabric recently at a Tuesday Morning (never thought they'd have fabric) and immediately thought aprons! So here they are, I really love how they turned out.

The best thing was that I had enough fabric left over that I made myself one too! The top ruffle is fabric I have had for a long time and have always wanted to use it in an apron. It turned out exactly how I wanted, isn't it cute?

Christmas Aprons

So I didn't do as much sewing this holiday as I would have liked, but I did get a few aprons made. I found a cute tutorial at One more Moore which I made using some holiday fabric. I took it to my daughters on Thanksgiving and she quickly called dibs on it. I got to model it for her.

My daughter in law liked it too so I made her one for Christmas. I always ask for a picture of the person wearing, so here it is. Here is proof she is using it IN the kitchen, ha ha she'll love this!

I had also been wanting to make one for Bob's sister and asked if her granddaughter would like one. She was thrilled that I would do that, then she asked if I would make a matching one for her mommy. Well then I had to make one for her other daughter as well, everyone should have an apron, right? I just got their family apron photo as well. It was taken with a cell phone camera so it isn't as clear, but still looks good. They all loved their aprons...that makes me happy!
