"SEWING APRON DAY" And A Few Other Tidbits

Good Afternoon ,

Please everyone, you still have time to sign up for my drawing if you haven't already. : ) Last day is June 8th. It has been just delightful! All the nice comments being left have blessed my life.

Our family was out traveling a few weeks back and I just had to STOP at one of my favorite quilt stores in Salina Kansas, called The Quilting Bee. I found the most adorable pattern Lilly Apron. I thought this would be sooooo cute for my daughters and myself to wear when we
do Farmer's Market. I let the girls pick out their own fabric. From top red square (surprise?) is mine, bottom left is Tressa's and bottom right is Taylor's (hers is brown and green, even though it looks black). I will let you all see when the aprons are done.

I wrote Michelle, that owns Busy Bee Quilt Designs, to get permission to put her information up on my blog. You must go over and see what she has. Her website is so beautiful. You will enjoy looking, if you like quilts, cute bags and the Lilly Apron. I thought it was so funny that my chicken and tea towel was named Lilly.

This is my" Little Garden Girl" who keeps watch over the Prairie Flower Farm.
I am finally getting some other things finished around the farm, since we have most of the garden and trees planted. Now we just sit, pray and wait for the Lord to help everything grow. I already have tomatoes on the vines. The basil is doing well and we will be making up pesto real soon for our foccacia bread. mmmmmmmmm can't wait.
I hope you can see this little rake. I was just talking with my hubby the other day saying that I wish someone would design a little rake. I had forgotten that I had bought one that was just for decoration. Yes! I am using it now when I weed the peas. It works fantastic.
I wanted to see if these strips really work. If you have tried them let me know. I wasn't sure so I thought I would try. As you can see by the little lettuce it worked great. I think it was well worth the money. Just thought you might like to try it if you haven't I have two trays in with flowers and herbs. I let you know how they work. Enjoy all your gardening.
My baby ducks are getting huge. They wander around eating my grass and maybe bugs? I don't know for sure if they eat bugs. You can let me know. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. If you have children or grandchildren the ducks need names. You can help them leave a comment. I think they are both girls. Thanks so much, it will be fun to see what names come through.

  2. I can't wait to see your aprons all finished! What does the back look like?

    I was just through Salina a few weeks ago, but didn't have a chance to go to the The Quilting Bee. I'll have to do that next time! Looks like a fun store!

  3. I am delighted to see what I have so far. I plan to spent some time looking around. This is country through and through. I am not into primitive. Thank you so much for heading me this way.
