Look Who's 6!

Look who turned 6! Here she is in her new 6 tee shirt.

Nature Girl celebrated her 6th birthday with a surprise party at Build A Bear. She had a great time and made a new puppy, which she named Pup. Everyone had fun and they all left with a new stuffed friend. One of my nephews told me he loved his dalmatian so much that it almost made him cry. I thought that was so sweet!

Happy Birthday Nature Girl!

Cheap Hot Mamas Apron Swap

Val over at Yarnigras hosted the Cheap Hot Mamas Apron Swap. The idea was to create an apron without spending any money. This is what I received from Madelyn. She made matching aprons for Nature Girl and I. I just love mother daughter aprons!!! So does Nature Girl! She refused to take hers off for the picture. She begrudgingly let me photograph the stickers and necklace making kits but informed me that she was not taking off her apron!

Madelyn made our aprons to be reversible. This is my favorite way to make aprons, as it's a two for one, so what's not to love. This is one of the sides. Notice the chocolate frosting on Nature Girl's sleeve? She helped frost birthday cupcakes before school Friday morning. The worst part is I didn't know she had frosting on her sleeve and sent her to school like that!

This is the reverse side. I can't decide which side I like the best. I love red, black and white together so it's hard to decide. I just love both sides! Thank you Madelyn!!! We love our aprons, they're perfect for us! And thank you for the goodies too!

This is the apron I finished to send to my partner. It's from a Tea Party Apron pattern by the apron lady. I didn't even cheat as I used fabric from my stash and the pattern was purchased with a gift certificate so I didn't spend any money. Hopefully my partner will like the apron. I had fun sewing and I think my sewing machine was happy to see me again!
