Crafty Creation Challenge and Stuff. . .

This week at CCC the challenge is Spots and Dots Our fabulous sponsor this week is Lexi`s Creations.
The winner will get 3 images. Thanks so much Lexi!!!

I oppted for a non-paper craft this week. I have not sewn anything since my laptop bag a year ago or the misc. card here and there. I found the apron as a cut out kit. I of course did not follow directions as I am a Robertson and hate doing so. I love how it turned out, I just wish I would have had chocolate brown thread for the fancy stitching, but cream complemented it okay as well.

Yes I used it last night to make cookies with my boys. So I had Jason snap a picture of his dear mom in it. Sorry not the best picture of me, but the apron looks wonderful! Hehe. (Dad did you expect anything but John Deere at this point)

I did buy some patterns and some fabric to make some more as I do love wearing aprons and forgot how much till last night. (as I am one of the dirtiest cooks I know) hehe.

Jason Update: Jason had ear tubes put in and his adnoids removed on Monday. He was a sleepy little bugger for the last two days and he is actually up and making a card at the moment. Hopefully he will be ready for school on Monday. He isn't eating at all and drinking is forced by his mother relentlessly. (Jason go take a drink) I understand it hurts I was there 16 years ago. Above that he seems to have a cough and fever, so if it doesn't get better in the next 2 days then they will end up seeing him back or giving him antibotics. He says he can hear lots better already and he talks different. ( I think it sounds kinda cute right now-- a bit nasally and higher, but that should go away after the swelling goes down) Now I just need to motivate him to do all his homework!

The rest of us are doing fine and Jake is loving Preschool and so excited to get to go to Kindergarden next year. My babes are growing so fast.
