Once again I have been missing from blogland because of life and because I just felt like I had nothing to blog about.
My flowers are florishing. Weeds have taken much of my time and sewing has taken a back seat.
I did finish an apron for one of my nieces, who specifically asked for an apron with a kitchen towel in the body of the apron so she could wipe her hands while cooking, plus she wanted fabric with chili peppers on it.
Now I’m working on an order for 8 utility aprons, which need to be done by the 15th of June.
The aprons are made from recycled jeans which means I get to use those jeans that I have saved for years. It’s so satisfying to finally make use of them.
Hopefully I’ll have more time for my blog now that it’s summer.
Just recently my niece/dear friend asked if I was interested in being one of the vendors at her tea luncheon.
Of course I said yes because first of all, I have never been to a tea luncheon and I also needed to put my crafts out there for people to see.
Knowing that I would need help I recruited my granddaughter to assist me.
This was a dressy event with the option of wearing a hat and many women did wear lovely hats, but because my head is just not made for that a particular accessory I didn’t wear one.
This is my dear friend wearing her hat, pictured with her lovely daughter.
The theme was Around the World in 80 Days, so the tables were decorated with different country themes.
I loved this table setting because the colors were so bright and cheerful which is what Italy is all about for me. This was done by another niece of ours.
The red, white and blue American setting was another favorite of mine and my granddaughter and I were invited to sit and enjoy our tea by my niece/dear friend. who decorated the table.
A little extra pizzazz was added to the back of the chairs.
Another visual treat was the napkin shaped into a rose.
Not only were we treated to a lovely luncheon, but we also enjoyed a fashion show with some great outfits modeled by the ladies of the Sunnyside Ministry.
I can’t believe they do this event every year because it involves a lot of planning and hard work. I watched my dear friend being pulled from all sides for help during the luncheon.
Thank you Gloria, you did such a wonderful job along with the other Sunnyside Ministry Ladies.💜❤️❤️💜
PS I was quite pleased with the sale of my crafts.
Truthfully my garden is being overrun with weeds. They are having quite a party in my special place.
But my flowers are doing a good job of showing off their colors.
My Pincushion flower is lovely. I like the way it posed for me.
The Gerbera Daisy is bright red-orange and quite big.
I planted Alyssum and Candy Tuft in my water fountain.
Hubby decided he wanted a garden again. He planted (too) many tomato plants with a few cucumbers. He loves home grown tomatoes and will have (too) many to eat and will end up having to share.
And then I have a crazy Blue Jay that is always stalking me and doesn’t even bother to get spooked when I’m walking in my garden.
Spring is really here! ❤️💜❤️💜
Every year our family goes to San Francisco to watch a Giants game. This year everyone was able to make it which made this trip extra special.
Willie McCovey is always there to greet us.
The company my husband retired from has a special game day where they provide a tailgate lunch which we get to enjoy so we don’t go into the ballpark hungry.
This picture is from last year, but this is the beautiful view that you can see from the ballpark.
This year the game was extra exciting taking 14 innings to get a winner, which was the Giants. But unfortunately I missed the home run that won the game. I did get to hear the roar of the crowd
Our youngest grandchild loves to watch all the ships that cross our view, like this tugboat Annie pulling this ship out to sea.
And of course we always take a family group picture for memories sake. 💜❤️💜❤️
