Ready For Ruffles?

LOOK AT THIS!
Sweet Cheeks and Sisters needed some
RUFFLED APRONS
for their BIZNESS
(as Sweet Cheeks calls it).
Their BIZNESS is 
You can read about it here and here.

Their Mom, my daughter, and I 
spent about 3 hours finding materials that
"matched".
Look how cute these fabrics are.
While the girls were stirring and baking....
.I started to cut and sew.
By the end of the day I had cut and sewn
EIGHT APRONS-
6 for the little girls and one for Mom 
and one for Dad.
I think Mom would look cute in a pink hat
like that, don't you?

All the apron ties have two coordinated fabrics
for the ties and three or four for
the aprons themselves.
Guess what kind of ruffles
SweetCheeks likes!
That's  my girl!!!!
I'd rather eat my Ruffles than wear them myself!

Pictures of them at work
in their aprons
in a day or so!

  50. Thank you to all of Nana Diana Followers out there! You all have embraced our girls as you have read their stories, laughed at the antics and pulled the tissues out when they are sad. And now, you have shown them support by "liking" their facebook page and encouraging them with sweet notes and words of praise! All of this, and they have never met you face to face.
    Thank you for the joy you have continued to spread. I am glad Nana takes the time to write down all of these things and share these tales with you.
