Oh yah Another Apron Swap

I love Aprons so much!!  Another Flirty Apron Swap. This theme is  ALOHA Apron Swap 2011.
I went shopping for FABRIC, it was so much fun. The deals I got were great, I bought more than I needed. Oh well!  I love vintage fabric. I don't like it from the 60's or 70's. Already been there done that.  Shabby Chic is more my style. I found some really cute fabric.  I don't have my partner yet but I am sure anyone will like a hand made Apron.

This last week has been strange, really strange.  Mon,Tue, and Wed I spent most of each day in bed so dizzy and upset stomach from being dizzy.  I could barely walk to the bathroom.  I have had this before.  A nasty Fibro Flare. Then fine felt so much better and I was thankful. Eddie said the hospital was crazy weird too. Then this morning we woke up a little warm, no AC, lights, fans, internet. Some one partied to hard and took out a transformer and three townships had no power for 4 hours. We were lucky. Many people do not have anything. I will gladly give up a few hours of convenience.

Please pray for the people in desperate situations. It is flooding every where. Not just here in Utah, but in Minot North Dakota too.  We lived in Minot for 9 years and still have many friends there. The house in town we lived in is gone, only the roof can be seen.  My best friend in Sawyer ND just a mile or two west of Minot lost their farm, it has been in her family 120 years.  The river ran right through the property near all of the buildings. Its as big a mess as Joplin Mo. We are from Missouri and have many friends and family there too.  So much devastation all over the country, the world. AND our Troops are still being deployed!.  I know that we are helping the WORLD !! Who is helping those in this country that have lost everything?

Please dear friends Pray, Pray for all who are in need.  Heavenly Father hears our prayers. 

Oh and Minot Flooded because our good friend in Saskatchewan CANADA, opened their flood gates and did not tell ND till there was only 5 HOURS NOTICE for evacuation. Thank You Canada, you burn down one of your own cities because you did not win, You open the flood gates because YOU did not want to get WET. STOMP YOUR FEET CANADA HAVE A TANTRUM.  So Lets say it all together.  BEHAVIOR DISORDER !!!!!!!!!

Till next time ..................

My intention today was to stay in bed. I wanted to feel sorry for myself, I am very good at this. If anyone needs any pointers I am available.  The fact of the matter is I am over whelmed with my sewing room. I have a thousand yards of fabric. I want to waive my FAIRY WAND, (it is so far up somewhere I cannot retrieve it any longer.) So that's out. And to make things worse I can't even turn the TV on, I am under Dr's order to lift nothing over 2#, due to pending back surgery.  Reading this I am Pathetic. As the maid in MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS said.  "A CABBAGE HAS A CABBAGE SMELL"  In other words  BUCK UP SISTER!!!!!.
Of course that dose not solve my problem. Really no one can do this but me.  So wish me LUCK I am off to Walmart to buy some Clear Plastic containers to sort my BELOVED FABRIC. Which is so like Christmas, I am feeling better already.
So off I go.   Till next time ................

Now that every thing has calmed down, It is oh to quite here.
 Today is the first day I have been alone in the new house, well not really I have my puppy friends. Who right now are all perched around me on the dinning room floor.
My husband has called me twice since he left for work. I am sure he is delighted to be gone. He is one of the hardest unrelenting working souls ever. He has unpacked and unpacked and there still are boxes in the family room. We still haven't found all the horse tack that we wanted to sell since we sold the horses a month ago.
The chickens are loving their new area. It is much bigger. However, they are sleeping in a LARGE BOX and a LARGE DOG CRATE until we get the new chicken coop built. This is suburbia friends. We have not live in a subdivision in 25yr.  Our house is on the corner so at least I don't feel so cooped up. (no pun intended). Utah, being the friendly folk they are?.  Allow you to have a few chickens in your yard as long as they are hens.
I am looking forward to the new Ward. We have been LDS almost 40 years.  OUTSIDE of Utah This makes a huge difference we found. Unfortunately  not always favorable experience.  I have Hope . The Bishop and The Relief Society have visited in the first few days we were here. They were all so pleasant and I am looking forward to this Sunday.
I have so much to do, so much decorating. The sewing room is first. I have to get it all set up so I can make a shower curtain for the bathroom then it will be done and I can post pictures.
When Spring gets home we are going to look at Dinning Tables. I have not been able to find on that has the sort of kind of chairs I want. So we are just going to get some ideas.
Well Friends, Its time for me to do something before Spring gets here. I had no idea how much I would miss my four grand children, no idea at all. 
Till next time...............................

Empty Space in Our House

Our Grand Babies are gone . They are off to Missouri to visit there other Grandmother. And attend the wedding of our son's best friend. They served in Iraq together.  Any way they are gone lock, stock and barrel.  After Missouri on to Arizona. Where they will live for a while until they move our son again.
I am so sad that Sarah participated in the Flirty Apron Swap and made a beautiful Apron and darling tuck ins to go along with it. The woman she was partnered with did not do her job by making her  an apron  and tuck ins. So she never received any thing at all. I got mine, but Sarah never got hers, and she was so looking forward to it. The partner said she sent it but could not provide any info on it. Such a disappointment. 

Now to the decorating.  Tomorrow my baby sister Lisa is coming to paint our bath room.  She is a good painter and dose not have a back issue like I do.  We are painting it Vineyard. I saw some lovely purple and white duk fabric I will make a shower curtain and a curtain for the open shelves  behind the door, replacing the mirror with one that I already have which I will paint white. I will post before and after pictures and you can tell me what you think.  Till next time.................

It's Almost Over

Hi friends,
We are in our new house finally. Boxes everywhere and a lot of things we can't use now in this house. AND we still have a pod of furniture that we have no room for. All of my lovely furniture from my formal front room now has to go. In the words of Scarlet O'Hara,  " I can't think about it anymore, I'll think about it tomorrow". Or something like that.  Till next time...................
