went to see my Mama today. she liked my apron. actually, i WORE it over there, and first words she said were 'oh that's really cute!' but when i tried to give it to her she said:

'no no, i already have way too much stuff.'

may the lord strike me dead on the spot if i ever refuse a handmade gift from one of my children. EVER.

i guess i'm just foolish for being suprised or hurt. i mean, it's just an apron. she isn't herself. and.. that means i can either keep it or give it to my Cara Mia.

Maybe it was her version of "That's too nice to wear!" and she knows how much work you put into it?

It's a gorgeous apron if that's any consolation!

Oh my gosh, I am so seriously going to go out and get that pattern!!
Great job! Love the fabric you chose!
If I was your Mom, I would have nabbed it in a New York minute!
Oh, and about your machine... I have a real old Kenmore that I LOVE!! I bought it in 1978!!! Well, when mine starts running like a Mac Truck, I have to oil the machine. Just follow the instructions in the manual... very simple... or take it to a repair place and have them oil and clean it. SOOO worth it, cuz it will purr like a kitten after that!!! I do it once a year.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
