Snow Day!

Just like a kid, I was happy to see that I got my wish for snow... Even if it was in the form of sleet. It started last night around 10pm and continued most of the day. Right now, as I am typing this it is still coming down. Woo Hoo! Another snow day tomorrow???

I should of spent the day packing and doing something for our move but we had run out of boxes so I had to find something else to occupy my time. I had been wanting to sew for the past month but something kept popping up. Well this afternoon, I pulled out one of the many patterns for aprons that I have and got to work.

Being a culinary student, I figured it would be nice to have a few aprons to show off while serving the Wednesday buffet. Wendell actually found this italian themed, pasta print at Hobby Lobby. Lucky for me I had a 40% off coupon. Hobby Lobby is one of the only two places left around Cape Girardeau, to purchase material and with the 40% off coupons that come in the Sunday paper, it allows me to treat myself to some material when I have the extra cash.

Since it looks like school will be cancelled again tomorrow, I think I will work on another apron. Dare I try for two? I remember my grandmother wearing them when I was small. How I wish now, I had kept a few when she passed away. Gotta love hindsight!

Take care and stay warm,



  1. Your apron looks quite cute in the picture. Seeing it and reading about your sewing adventure makes me want to pull out some fabric and find a patern to make one myself. I have a couple that were gifts that make me feel good in the kitchen while cooking. Good luck on your schooling and enjoy the snow. I am envious as we are looking at 5o's around here and no prediction of snow this winter. BLAH!

  2. the apron turned out great! i would go for two if it were me :)
