We have had a delightful day. Amy and I sewed off-and-on for hours. I also did almost everything on my to-do list. I did my grocery shopping and bought plenty of food to last us a couple of weeks. Right now I am drinking a nice Root Beer. It is such a treat to have a pleasant beverage.
Have I told you about our little home -sewing shop? Amy (15) and I are doing a 60 day challenge. We are hand-sewing one apron every day for 60 days, without the use of a machine. We started on June 1st and are on our second apron.
It is like a sewing school for Amy. She is my seamstress-in-training. She had a great time doing our photo-shoot today! She is quite a character and kept me laughing.
We designed a simple apron pattern together.
I am going to bake a chocolate cake tomorrow. It will have coconut sprinkles all over it. I am also going to attempt to make coconut milk. I will write about this tomorrow and offer a giveaway! (Not for the cake! - smiles)
I will also post the name of the winner for our current giveaway - The Belly Burner.
I wanted to start a series today about teaching home economics to daughters, but didn't have time. I will work on that soon. It is a fun topic, and I'd love to share what I am doing with Amy (15).
It is very late at night. I am going to light a candle, turn on some classical music and put on my apron. Then I am going to clean and shine up my living room. It will look lovely and make home a delight!
Hope you have a joyous evening!
Edited update - We had to slow down the project. We finished several aprons, but not 60. It was a great experience!
