here we sew again!!



The soul sisters gathered their supplies and sewing machines and convened over at Jennifer Junipers house yesterday morning. If you recall we had a sewing bee once before, last summer, when we made the cutest bags....this morning our mission was to make the most "random" aprons.... Our lovely hostess greeted us with a scrumptious spread of artichoke potatoe bake, strawberries and tea cookies....a little bit of girly girl chit chat and we got busy........




Cutting.....




Pressing......




...laughing hysterically!!!! .....wait a minute! Ms. M had a slow start to the morning and we appointed her supervisor and mentor to Ms. Joy...She decided not to go the apron route....she whipped in with the prettiest fabric to make a skirt...without a pattern and only two hours! There were a few momemts when I personally would have thrown the towel...but she pulled it off quite nicely. Well......when she decided to try it on in the kitchen I couldn't resist a quick picture to capture the moment!




Wait...here's a picture that does it more justice....especially endearing with her jeans around her ankles...really cute...the skirt I mean!!!




Jennifer Juniper had to go pick helper munchkin up at school while Marzipan Mom and I put the finishing touches on our super cute aprons. There was a break in the rain long enough for us to get a group shot out on the patio. It was a really fun little project. I like to wear an apron occaisionally....especially on special occaisions...click here to see the aprons I made last summer... I think this one will look cute on Mother's Day! The same thoughts ran through my head on the drive home that always do.....awwwhhh, it's over already, I just love those girls!!! wonder what we'll do next time??? ...It's just so wonderful to have my soul sisters!!! Thanks again!!!

Ok, first of all, I am loving JJ's pinkish shirt with the pattern. And, I am loving and envying the friendship and partnership! I hope you know how lucky you are to have such good friends!!

OOh..I love the swirly skirt, somewhat blurry, pants around the ankles picture. It embodies the day as far as I'm concerned!!
