Guys away. Girls play.

Over the weekend, our guys (plus many of John's friends) headed north to open up the cabin for the summer. Meaning there was no way we wished to join them. Anne and I (we missed you, Kari...next year?) stayed in our city nest and took in a movie, a play, ate out and window shopped. It was a lot of fun!

What really made me get excited is that while out window shopping, Anne and I spotted an adorable apron and she mentioned she would like a little project! Project? I love projects! We headed back to our other place where the sewing machine, fabrics and such make their home.

It was fun to "shop" the shelves of my fabric stash. I enjoyed watching Anne selecting her choices that matched her gentle disposition with rosy tones and a sweet little print. My choices were, well, shouting with color and print.

This project took a little longer than Anne thought it would...and our guys were soon to arrive home. She and I made a deal that I would take the few last stitches on her project and she would clean up the mess we made: a win/win propositon.
We both finished our aprons just in the stitch of time...and though dinner wasn't made, or laundry done, or other chores one would think an apron-wearer would complete weren't done, we could model our finery for the guys. What do you think? Do we look like the perfect housewives? Ha!!

Thanks for the post of the weekend. We really did have a great time together, didn't we? I loved our meals, adventures, and of course our projects! Thanks for everything!

It was my pleasure, Anne! Thanks for commenting. (I like comments, you know.) It was a lot of fun for me, too!

What cute aprons and you are both fabulous models! I noticed the dress in the background of one of the pictures. Did you make that too?
