~Christmas Fun and Aprons~

This past weekend we went to the Wickford Festival of Lights. We had a wonderful time as we went on a hayride with Santa and caroled through the village.

This display was in one of the shop windows. We went into the shop but it was tiny and crowded. They had the most adorable doggie gifts.

This is dh and kiddos at the gazebo near town square. The whole town was lit up beautifully. There were luminaries lighting our path and the shops were just heavenly. I love visiting with the people. I also found a wonderful little yarn shop which I plan to return to someday very soon. It was very crowded and tiny so I just couldn't spend enough time with the gorgeous yarns they had.

The antique shops in this little town are just to die for. I could spend a whole day just strolling through town and enjoying all the gorgeous little shops. I think that will definitely be on the list of things to do this spring.

This is the first apron I have sewn. I recieved this cute fabric and pattern in a swap on Mary Janes Farm. I just love it. Nothing could say farmgirl better than this little apron. I was thrilled when I finally completed it.
Isn't it just wonderful. I love the flounce at the bottom. It gives it an added farmgirl touch.

I received an adorable little apron from my secret pal at MaryJanes Farm. I am wearing it right now. I love the fabric and the large pockets.

Thank you Secret Pal!!!

I made this apron for the apron swap for the Sassy Apron Swap. I had so much fun working on this. This was my first swap and I really enjoyed it. I cannot wait until I receive my apron.

I added some little snowflakes I crocheted and a little snowflake notepad.

I wrapped up the little package with some snowflake ribbon. I sent this to Lisa and she really enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for your sweet comments! We are a home schooling family, too! You did an amazing job on your apron. I am impressed! Someday I would love to make one, but my sewing skills are less than basic- ha ha! What curriculum do you use? We just started The Mystery of History this week and we are loving it! I will blog about it tonight if I get a minute. Lori

Ruth- We use a mix of curriculum, too. We jst completed the second book in THe Story of the World (love that series,too!) and some Abeka curriculum. Now we are using LLATL (like you!), THe Mystery of History, Math U See, and we will be starting Apologia Science for the first time. I am planning on buying Rod and Staff for my kindergartner. Have you ever tried this? Lori
