Poka-Dot Apron

Today is my one day off from work,Until Sunday... So I decided after doing all the stuff that was a must to do, Then I sat down and sewed..Oh it is just so relaxing.And the bestest of all I made jus ole me a apron,Actually it is only the second apron ever I made just for ole me!
Of course I made it to wear for work..I have to use a head set phone and the phone will fit really nice in the deep pockets.. and the bib of the apron keeps all the hair from cutting peoples hair and all the perm solutions and hair color off my clothes.
The best part of all it is cheerful and bright!
My hubby said it looks like a clown clothes.I wasn't going to wear the poka-dot side then. But the more I thought about it I don't care and am going to wear the poka-dot side tomorrow
This is the reverse side of my poka-dot apron and am going to sit done now and sew lady bug buttons on the pockets..and on the Poka-Dot side of my apron I am sewing big black buttons on the pockets!!

heads up thingy

Hello Every one..Just wanted to do a heads up thingy
I won't be on line next week....
A friend Of mine who is a hair dresser (so am I) fell and tore a muscle in her groin called me , asked me to come and work her shop because... she is in so much pain..She has to take several weeks off and stay off her feet in order for the groin muscle to heal..so I am working full time in her place for her...I am not use to working full time, and need to give my full attention to work..It is hard because these are not my customers and their use to having Carol their own hairdresser do their hair not some one new..WHEW!! ...So I'd sure appreciate your prayers for me that all goes well. ..I do feel a bit intimated by doing some Else's customers
Plus it's been a while since I have behind a chair professionally,,All this week I have done a crash course in the chemical process of the new products she uses ..Colors and perms etc.. Wowzer come home kinda brain numb..So far the customers have been so under standing...I am trying to really help Carol out..It's my prayer I do a excellent job for her. I know this groin injury will take time to heal ..please say a pray for her because it is all she can do to walk and pain is sever. Poor thing can hardly walk and they say the only thing that can heal a torn groin muscle is to stay completely off it..Like I said please say a prayer for her it is really appreciated so very much.
I will talk to you all week after next!!
Lot's of Hugs
