Packing - Again!

Well, I am packing to take a trip to the UP next week. We plan on leaving on Sun. after church and returning Thurs. morning. My dad is up at the farm so it will work out quite well to stay with him. The only problem is that we won't have a car. It's not such a huge deal but I'd like to visit some friends that live about an hour from my dads and probably won't get the chance to. That part is a bummer but we will get to spend plenty of time with my dad and grandparents and my aunt and uncle and that is really the whole point of going.

This trip comes at a pretty good time actually. I started making an apron for Jozie for her birthday and got the whole thing cut out yesterday only to get my sewing machine out today and I can't figure out step one of sewing it together. So, I will be taking it with me to have grandma help me, shes been sewing for YEARS so we should get it done in no time. I thought I'd be able to do it myself because I picked out the easiest pattern I could find for a child's apron but I guess I was wrong. Hopefully I can learn a lot and do the next project on my own!

I. Am. So. Jealous. Can I come and visit my mom and Papa too??? I'm glad you found a pattern! Have a GREAT trip!!!

You're better than me. I can't even sew buttons. ;) Works out well for me. Brian's mom is an excellent sewer, so we save anything that needs mending for her to do. That's really bad I know...

Have fun on your trip!
