An Unique Gift Wrapping For House Warming, Birthday, Etc.

Well....I had a gift to give our daughter-in-law, but no wrapping paper. I made her a vintage style apron (sorry no picture) using this cute fabric, but didn't have any wrapping paper. I remembered our son telling me that our daughter-in-law likes lighthouses, so I embroidered this cute lighthouse towel. I used the towel to wrap her apron and tied a cute and simple bow.

Not only is it practical, it saves our trees, and creates an unique way to wrap a small package.

Country N' More Making Pattern From Old Favorite Apron

One of my customers had an apron that she really liked wearing but it was just worn out. The customer sent us her old apron and chose the fabric that she wanted for her new apron. A pattern was made from the apron and we were on our way to creating that new apron for this customer. By the way, this apron was reversible. When we received the apron, we were not sure how we were going to make another apron, since it had armholes and was reversible. After much thought, we just came up with our own method for stitching the apron together.

Roger Red Grape Juice

Well....I came back from a short trip to find two large bowls of grapes waiting for me. My son noticed that the grapes were ready to be picked. Knowing that we like our grapes, our son just didn't want to see the birds fly off with any more of the grapes. The birds were landing on the bushes and flying away with branches filled with grapes.

I normally would make jelly, but since my husband liked the fresh juice last year, I decided to juice them again this year. This year's crop is about 30-60 percent less than previous years.

It always amazes me that there is so much juice left after running the grapes through the juice extractor. I think it is because there are so many small seeds in these blueberry size grapes.
