Summer Fun

I've been fussed at again...Its been 8 months since I last posted on my blog.  So much has happened I am not sure where to start.  My "mother and daughter apron set" came out in the February issue of Apronology.  I was given a 3 page feature spread with also one of my apron pictures located on one of the index pages.  I was so excited to see my aprons in print.  I have felt so blessed the past two years   I just hope I came repeat it once again this year.
By April my mother was busy trying to get ready for my grandmother to move in with her.  She had lots of organizing, cleaning and redecorating to accomplish by the time my grandmother moved in (end of May).  My mother lives 5 houses down the street.   Now I have both of them 5 houses down.  I think it has been a big adjustment for both of them.  My mother has a 3 bedroom home but my grandmother moved out of a 2 bedroom apartment.  They are a little cramped for space but it will be great having all of us girls together in the same town,  4 generations.  All of us love to cook and do crafts so I anticipate fun times ahead.  Below is a picture I took last summer at my grandmother's place.

My family and I went to Disney World in June and had a fantastic time.... as usual.  I just love that place.  Although we were home sick after the 8 days....we still didn't want to leave Micky, Minnie, Donald and Daisy behind.   It was so stinking hot down in Florida though...I thought I was literally melting.  In 2006, during our first Family Disney trip, I took a picture like this one...Now  2011 version, lets hope it actually ends up in the Christmas Cards that is was intended for...

Now that school is out, vacation is over, I can start focusing on my aprons again.  I found some adorable fabric in the past few months that is begging to be sewn.

I need to take more pictures of the fabric that I just purchased.  OOPS. I just remembered that I need to make a desert for a bar-b-q that my family and I have been invited to.  I better stop typing and get to baking.  I hope to write more than once in eights months.
