Lunch with Ashley

Our nice waitress took this picture, it's a little blurry.

Ohhh my! I just got home from Young Women's. I had the grand idea to sew aprons! Why I had this idea, I am still wondering! I don't sew! I gathered all of the supplies that the girls would need, for tonight. I lined up 3 sewing machines, and had plenty of helpers. To make a l-o-n-g short short...2 of the 3 machines where broken! Yikes! One was the wards machine, and the other was a sister in the wards machine. Thank goodness for the one, and only running machine! I was thinking that for the next sewing project, I volunteer for I need to remember to check the machines before hand. That thought lasted about 3 seconds. I came to the conclusion, I am not volunteering anytime soon, to teach 11 girls to sew! :) Anyhow we did get every one's aprons done.

Today I was able to meet up with Ashley, and her sweet little guy. He is the cutest! It was such a treat. It was so nice to sit, and visit with my cousin. I was sitting there chatting when I realized how much we have in common. I know that Heavenly Father puts certain people in our lives for a reason. I feel blessed to have Ashley in mine.

You are so cute! I can just see you with the two broken machines. Something tells me, they really enjoyed you teaching them though! Ashley looks like a sweet person and I know what you mean about Heavenly Father putting certain people in our lives. :)

I want to see those aprons! That's incredibly nice of you to volunteer for such an involved project. I hate the frustration of sewing machines. I always have issues when I attempt any sewing projects...which is why my curtain material still sits in the closet untouched. I definitely need to tackle that soon!

Ashley sounds like a neat friend, Michelle. I agree...certain people ARE put into our lives for a reason. I have friends like that too.

I'm impressed with your apron efforts. I wouldn't even know how to set the darn sewing machines up...
