Time sure files when you have a job and a family! Remember above all the people you love and care about need to be tended to all other things can wait.... you don't want to look back at your life and have regrets!
Since my last blog I have traveled to San Diego to visit with my high school/College friends and some family still living there. I went to a dear friends wedding she has finally found a wonderful man that she can love and depend on, congratulation Cory and David! I stayed with Cathy a friend that I could not believe has not changed just gotten a little older! Well 25 years older time seems to be passing so quickly.
I so enjoyed spending time with all of my old and new friends and can not wait to see them again. Our family has experienced miracles family members have fought cancer and won.
It makes you know what is important there are too may distractions in life and we can not allow them to take over.

Sassy Winter Apron Swap

I am trying to get caught up on posting things onto my Blog. I have been busy and I am having a hard time getting everything I need done. I received my apron earlier this week it came while I was at work and sent a thank you to my partner the next morning when I had a few minutes. I got my Sassy Winter Apron a gingerbread man cookie cutter and recipe for the best gingerbread cookies ever. I must make some cookies for my family!!! Well here is my christmas apron I am very pleased I didn't have a christmas apron, it is really sweet a half apron that has pleats across the front very sassy!!! Thanks so much I can't wait to use it.....

Hot Mamas Apron Swap - The apron I got!

I have not posted the apron I received for the Hot Mamas - Hot beverage Apron Swap so here it is I love it! It is from the book A is for Apron which I had to go get because the apron was so cute. I got it from Crystal and she has only been making aprons for a few months so she did a amazing job. I love it, it reminds me of the dress I had when I was a little girl and the coffee cups were way too cute. I loved how she combined the checks and prints and the cups she put on the pockets. I must use this pattern to make more aprons I love how it fits and looks! Thank you again so much for a fantastic apron!

Sassy winter Apron Swap

Well Here is the Apron I sent off for the Sassy Winter Apron Swap on Monday right at the deadline! I tried to go to the post office on Saturday and missed it by a hour. Oopps!!!! I hope my partner likes it I sent a snowflake cookie cutter my moms Sugar cookie recipe (wonderful) a snowman figurine and a Christmas cookie cookbook. I went with the snowflake and snowman theme because she lives in California and it doesn't snow there! I grew up in California and had to move to North Carolina to have snowy winters. I hope I hear back from my partner I really enjoyed putting this apron together I made one side snowmen and the other snowflakes, I hope she likes it.......

I am again in another apron swap. I think it is so fun, you get to make something for someone you don't know and she will end up really happy. So cool! Well I finished it today. It turned out really cute. A Christmas cookie apron swap. You are suppose to send a cookie cutter your favorite cookie recipe-I am going to send my mothers Sugar Cookie recipe. It is by far the best sugar cookie recipe I have ever had, and once she tries it I think she will agree. I have only found one lady that made cookies like moms ever and it really made me smile when I bit into it. She brought Decorated Sugar Cookies into the Dr's office I worked for and I couldn't believe they tasted like moms. Well once I put the apron in the mail I will put the pictures up on my site. Maybe by Wends. or Thurs.
Everyone have a great thanksgiving and happy Fall!
Love Patty

Hot Mamas Apron swap

Well I sent off the Hot Mamas Apron and I am quite proud of it I think it turned out really well. Yaah I know it has been a while. I have been a little distracted with Halloween, Becky's 17th birthday, and my new job it is just a bit different from anything I have ever done and I am confused so often. I have to solute all call center operators, my friends that sit around me say I sound like I am so calm I guess it is like when you are up against a teenage boy or girl you show no fear no matter what....
So here is the apron I sent to my partner.....
I also sent different coffees a coffee mug cozy I knitted with a jack-o-lantern on one side and boo on the other and some trick or treat candy.
I hope she liked it - I really enjoyed making it for her....

Japaneese Knot Bags

I found a cool pattern on the web I have made 3 bags one for me one for Becky and one for a prize I still need to finish another bag for the other prize it is cut out I just have to sew it together. A Strand of Purls, my favorite yarn shop is having a Halloween get party, I have to work so I wont be there. It is the last day of my training so its OK. I use my bag for a knitting bag Becky wants to use hers for a purse. The bag was easy to do once I figured it out. As par with me I didn't follow the directions the first time and confused myself a lot. Seam rippers are a great thing. I think sewing for 35 plus years sometimes hurt me......... well anyway here they are, I think they are cute! The web address for the pattern and directions is ( I was thinking about enlarging the pattern to make a bigger bag I will have to try that later.
