Monday's Musings...

Today I worked on an apron
for our church's nursery.
I had hoped to make two
but the pattern took longer
than I had, originally, expected. ;o)
And I was thrilled I had
bought the 'optional' bias tape
or it would've taken longer
to make my own.
But I was glad to get it finished
so that we could use it
in the nursery this evening. ;o)

The finished product...

I used the Edwardian Apron pattern
from Sense and Sensibility Patterns.

The children enjoyed playing our "Some Body" game...

I could over-hear them talking about
the function of kidneys. How cute!

After supper, we headed to church.
Ally, the girls, and I were in the nursery
and Will sat in the revival service
with our assitant pastor and his wife.
Ally stayed in the service during the special music
to capture it on our camcorder.
After the service, Will played a game
with a Marine that has been visiting regularly...

The lil' girls giggled and played...

And Ally enjoyed trying to play

a classical piece on the organ...

When we arrived home, I tucked the children into bed

and enjoyed downloading the videos from the service
and watching them (I'll share one in my next post).

I hope y'all are enjoying your week. ;o)

Oh, how beautiful! I still haven't gotten around to the apron, yet. What with all the coming and going of visitors around here... :-D Well, winter is coming and I will be doing more of that stuff.

I LOVE the apron!! So cute!
Your revival services look like fun!!

Ginny ~ Thank you. This was my first time making an apron. It wasn't as easy as I had hoped but I think the more I do it, the easier it will become. ;o)
I'm sure you are enjoying all of your visitors, though. ;o)
And, yes, you'll very likely have more 'free time' to sew when winter settles in. ;o)

Bren ~ Thank you. Overall, I liked the outcome of it, though it is generously flawed. lol
Our revival services have been fun but more importantly they have been filled with great preaching of God's powerful Word. ;o)

That apron is awesome and just something I have been looking for. I will have to check out the link, thanks!
What a blessing it must be to have an evangelist that is so gifted! I'm sure God has been moving in your church!

Looks like a lovely time of fellowship. The apron is lovely and it was cute to see momma and daughter modeling it.

I wonder if my brother would be interested in attending your church once he is back. It would be great for him.

Thank you for sharing your days, they have been an encouragement.

Christina I really like the fact that this apron is LONG! Most nursery aprons I've used only covered to mid hip. This is much more practical for dresses. Your material is very cheery too. You did a nice job on it. Thanks for the link to the pattern. ;0)

You did a GREAT job on the apron. It is so pretty.

What fun you all are having this week in revival.

Have a great day

What a beautiful apron! I am so glad I can access your site now..I seemed to have trouble in the past when rerouting to your page. Just beautifu. And, you have such a lovely home :)

Megan (MarineMama) ~ Thank you. We really like the look of the apron.
Yes, it has been a great blessing having this evangelist here.
Thank you, also, for the award. It was a blessing to know you thought of me and it made me smile. ;o)

Mrs. S ~ We sure are thankful for the fellowship. Thank you... We were thrilled at making our first apron. ;o)
We would love to have your brother at our church. If you'd like, you could email me and I can send you a link to our church's website so he would know more about it, where it is, and can pray about visiting. ;o)

Karen ~ We love that the apron is long, too. That is why I decided to purchase the pattern. WE hope to make more of these sometime soon for home/daily wearing.
Ally picked the material. I was glad she found it. ;o)
You're very welcome for the link.

Amy ~ Thank you. Thankfully, the flaws can't be seen in the photos. lol

Heather ~ Thank you. I'm so glad to hear from you. I'm glad you were able to load our site. I think about you often and check in at your blog to see how you're doing. ;o) Praying for you.
