I am completely flabbergasted at how quickly this summer is breezing by. I have had the best of intentions, of course. I wanted to have a regular library day. I wanted to go on regular hikes with the kids...those didn't happen, either. And in just a few short weeks, the kids will go back to school and I'll be at home left to shuffle around here in solitude...well, near solidtude. I crave the routine, but do feel sad knowing that I won't have my pals around to watch movies, eat popcorn, bake cookies...or any of the the fun things we DID manage to accomplish. I'm still coffee tagging with my coffee drinking friends...and even some who are NOT coffee drinkers. hee hee hee!
A few years ago, a friend of mine helped me find a couple of dressers. This was one of them. At the time, I could see beyond the many different colors and sharpie marker markings. My kids begged me to please get rid of this hideous hunk of junk. I ended up using it as a changing table for my youngest child. It was perfect! The height was just right and the drawers came in very handy for storing diapers and other supplies. I finally got the supplies around to strip off the many layers of color. It looks quite a lot different now. I will post another picture later to show my progress. I have some neat ideas for this piece. I hope you'll stay tuned. ;)
I also joined another Yarnigras Apron Swap. This theme was "Mamma Mia." It was so much fun. The hostess, Valerie Powery, loves the movie and decided to have a little fun with her apron swap and tie the two together. The requirements were to send our assigned swap partner a handmade apron along with some little trinket and a recipe that had something to do with the movie. I had sooooo much fun first just picking the fabrics for my apron. My kittens decided they wanted to help me out a little bit in the construction of this project. Again, I have a picture of the finished product that I will share in another post.
