A Simple Woman's Daybook

 A Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window:  It's dark with a cold rain and forecast of rain changing to snow flurries...anywhere from simply flurries to 3 in.  That's snow forecasting in the South..Flip a coin cuz nobody really knows what's going to happen.
I am Thinking: of taking some old button down shirts and making aprons from them.  Check out these Pinterest pics. Aren't they adorable??  I'm thinking of gifts for Christmas??


I am Thankful for: Oh my Goodness, I'm so blessed Dear Lord, where do I begin to thank you?!  My first thought was of my precious Grandchildren...look at those faces...I could just eat them up!
From the Kitchen:  I made a Big pot of Veg. Soup with a pan of cornbread...yum!  We were tired of Thanksgiving leftovers and with it being so cold outside, a big pot of soup sounded not only delicious but cozy as in "comfort food".  Throw in some Chocolate pie and coffee and I'm in heaven. I've eaten WAAAY too much Coconut Creme Pie...Oh be-still my heart
I am Creating:   TWO Christmas Wall hangings and I plan to use this Twin Star block to make up some stars tonight from my Christmas Stash. Thanks Piece N Quilt

I am Reading:  The Help

Around the House:  All Thanksgiving decorations have been taken down and stored.  Christmas Decorations are sitting in boxes in my foyer waiting to go up.

One of MY Favorite Things:  The following pictures show the combination of TWO of my favorite things, Embroidery and Children's Literature.  This illustrator and fabric designer has embroidered Book covers of 3 well loved Children's books.  Have you read these books?  It's my understanding you can now order these patterns from Penguin Threads at Amazon.com and I intend to purchase them as soon as payday rolls around this week.



 I HAVE to PUT MY ALMA MATER in here since they won Sat. and are now Bowl eligible.
GO HERD!!!  WE ARE...MARSHALL
A Simple Grace Note:  #1 Husband was able to fix Breakfast this morning ....all by himself!  If you've been following, you know what a Big Deal this is given we are a month out of major shoulder surgery!  Thank You Lord!

  6. Hi Jane, those aprons are so cute and would make fun gifts. I actually listen to the book "The Help" while I was sewing last month and really enjoyed it but was a little sad at the ending. Yeah Roger making breakfast is a great accomplishment, take care. I love all those little faces too. Blessings for them all. Sandra
