Busy, Busy. Aprons

I finished the ALOHA APRON!!! It's in the mail Off to North Dakota. In my rush to get it in the mail I forgot to take a finished Picture. Dang it!! I have book of every thing I make and now this project will be MIA !.  I will post some of the scrap colors that I have.
Next project started for the "Hot Mama" Cool Drink Swap. The Colors for this one are so cute. I love sewing for other people. Even more Fabulous, at Hancock Fabric, now that I am officially a Senior citizen.   Wednesday's you get 15% off your total purchase. sometimes it pays to get old OOOOOO-LALA.  So all of you finely defined lovely's head over and walk in to Hancock Fab take a big sniff and get it on, on Wednesdays. Fabric makes me high. AH HA. ( That was a moment for me).  By the way  watch " RoseAnn's Nut's " on LIFETIME she wears Aprons all the time. Till next time.....................

Lunch With My Daughter

Yesterday I went out to lunch with my only daughter.  She lives with us so we try to do something fun on Saturdays. So we drove down to Salt Lake and the she had an appointment she needed to attend in Ogden.  Talk about one end of the earth to the other.  After her appointment we went to lunch.  In the line in front of us was a   young man possibly in the range of 22 to 25 yr .  He was neat and clean and very polite. But you could tell he has a brain injury. His movements were a little jerky his head hung a little to one side and his speech demonstrated it too. He had a little trouble swiping his debit card so the sweet girl at the counter offered to help him and he kindly let her. He got his food and went to sit with his friend who looked to have some sort of an injury. They were talking and laughing and every once in a while one of them would say OORAH! and then one of them would say MUSCLE THROUGH IT SOLIDER. It was clear what the problem was. They were both combat Marines injured in Iraq. They were talking about combat they had been in.
I could hardly keep back the tears. You wonder what they had seen and how they were injured. I wondered too if they were getting the help they needed and deserved.
It concerned me so much because our son to was in Iraq during the push North.  We have heard nothing of what happened to him or what he saw. Some funny things.  He was in Special Forces. Psyop Unit. He came home with a case of PTSD and has meds for it and dose not sleep much. But dose well with his job.
Anyway, please remember our Military pray for all of them.
Till next time.........................

Positive Progression

There is beauty all around.  I am by no means done, but things are looking up in the sewing room.  Since I can not carry any thing, it is hard to do things in a timely manner.  As you all know when you start to organize, it gets worse. There is a light at the end of the tunnel
During the progression, my friend had a little fun.
 Maybe we should all take a little time out of a messy situation to enjoy something.

My Country Tis Of Thee

Happy 4th of July!.  Our Family is very patriotic. We are all Military. USAF, ARMY.  When our son who is 33 now was in high school he went to a Magnet school. It was run by the Navy, they wore full uniforms everyday, had formation each morning, earned rank, and became leaders. The whole Military experience.
At the end of each year they had " PASS AND REVUE". An Admiral would come up from Florida to view the troops as they passed the Grand Stand.  It was a wonderful experience. As the flag passed everyone would stand the troops would turn their heads and sharply salute the Admiral.  As each year went by It was something everyone looked forward to.  In his Senior Year Pass and Revue, the crowd was a bit unruly a little rude even. The troops began to pass and when each platoon passed with their Flag and the American Flag only a few people stood up with their hands over their harts. It was really annoying me. Then the Honor Guard began to pass the Grand Stand still only a few. I could not take it any more.
I got on top of the riser bench seat and Yelled at the Top of my Voice as Loud as I could "STAND UP, STAND UP THE FLAG OF YOUR COUNTRY IS PASSING!!!!   The crowd was as surprised, as was I. Everyone got to their feet and woman turned to me and said I did not know we were supposed to. I was horrified that the respect for the flag and our country was so un important to some.
I just looked in her eyes and softly said "Your an American aren't you". Thank goodness it was his senior year I just knew I was going to get a good talking to.
When everything was over and we were re united with our son, he came up to me and said thanks mom I am so proud of you for standing up for our flag.
After high school he went to college, and  to the Army Resvers where he spent 1yr in  in Bosnia and then in Iraq for 14 mo. Now today he is a federal Agent.
Still loving and serving our country.
enjoy the holiday and your freedom. Till next time.....................

I am so excited I have another Apron Swap.  I need to make 2 Aprons in the 3 weeks that is so much fun.  I still have to get my Sewing Room in order. There are still 30 boxes in the Family Room to go through and at least half are for the Sewing Room.  See my mess. Any suggestions?? Sooo  you can see what I am up against. I really do not have a clue where to start.  Not only do I have to make the greatest Aprons for 2 fabulous new friends, I also need to make shower curtain, Bedroom curtains, Sewing room curtains, family room and front room. All before I have surgery.  I can do some pretty crazy things. I will do this , yes I can.  After all I have a few life badges under my belt. AND I Am A RED HEAD. That counts for fortitude.  SOOOOO till next time?
