Another post from the past that I thought would be fun to share!
But first let's pick a winner from the vase....
And it's Happy Cottage Quilter!
This is the apron of the day that I will be sending her!
There is an under layer of organza but actually it's reversible.
This post was from May 2009:
I saw that Jen, Miss Punkie Pie blog, did this over on her blog recently,
so I am going to follow along. I started this last week and since today I have a camera with a dead battery, then I think that this would be the day for:
The ABC's of Me
A- Age: 54. Yikes! Too honest?

L- Living arrangements: We live in a modern farmhouse style home on 3 acres. Very rural area.
M-Mom's name: Donna. You would love her.
N- Nickname: I have had several. I'm one of those people who get tagged with names and in fact Sinta is (or was) a nickname, but I made it legal once upon a time.
O- Overnight hospital stay: Lots, watching over my hubby.
P- Pet peeve: Well, manners. People need to remember manners. I'm not formal or stuffy by any means but common courtesy is important!
*** There was this receptionist at the dentist office who never would say hi or greet you in any way. I always made a point of saying hi, just to see if she ever would respond. One day I came in and after saying hi and getting no response I said...
oh, you poor thing... laryngitis? It worked. I got a greeting from then on. ***
Q- Quote from a movie: A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others. Wizard of Oz.
But on the other hand- "I'll have what she's having" is a good one... from When Harry Met Sally.
R- Right or left handed: Lefty
S- Siblings: 2 sisters. One older, one younger.
T- Time you wake up: I get up by 5 and on the weekend I sleep in until... 6ish.
U- Unique thing about your car: My car is kind of "beefy". Toyota 4 Runner. Tinted windows and the extra grills (deer protection).
V- Vegetable you hate: PEAS.
Peas are the reason I got kicked out of school (the first time).
That was Nursery School!
W- Ways you run late: I always wait until the last minute to get ready for work.
I hate to leave my sewing room.
X- X-rays you've had: MRI's are the most notable x-rays. Back problems. I always take my stuffed bunny with me to the doctors for these big events.
Y- Yummy food you make: I make a killer Fettuccine Alfredo. Second place is my Quiche.
Z- Zoo favorite: I think Elephants are amazing and Giraffe's are beautiful animals.
There I am in a nutshell!
My sweet dog went to puppy heaven and I haven't had back issues for years now!
I was in a car accident a few weeks ago... and my car is history!
Oh, and even though Z is for Zoo. I really don't like zoo's. I think that they are just
pretty prisons for wildlife.
Leave a comment and I will have one more apron to giveaway this week.
Then I will be looking forward to the AYOS parade!
