If this is your fist visit to Blue Monday, then you'll love what you find over at Smiling Sally's who is the host of this great event, so be sure to go by http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ & visit the other wonderful participants who are showing their blues today








A while back I had found beautiful vintage apron patterns that were being offered for download, my sister dressed them up with Picasa, they will go in my sewing room once the the revamping is over,there are about 10 I think but I'm showing the blue ones today

Hi Picket's little sister! How come have I not found your blog before? We've heard so much about you from Picket. And wish we could go on those shopping trips to Hobby Lobby with ya'll!
