1st day of School

Today was the first day of school for our girls
in their new school.
Pretty excititing!
Well at least for me.
They are wearing their new skirts.

Then I baked some banana bread.
This is the Kellogs Banana Bran Bread recipe
that I got off the cereal box many years ago.
And it's a good one. 
It has All Bran in it and that gives it a nice texture.

I had to go to the store to get the All Bran this morning
and I also found this.
Chockcherry jelly!!
I haven't had it in years so I had to buy some.
Next year I will have to find some chockcherries to pick,
(now that we are living in chockcherry country) 
soI can make my own.
This small jar was $5.00!!

I'm back!!

I am trying to get in the swing of things here.
Getting organized in a new house is not fun.
I can't find anything.
Ok.  So I sewed on 2 appliques.
I guess you could call that a start.

And these 2 little critters needed some surgery.
They are ready to go back to their owners now.

So, is that a start?
I hope so.
I said to self, "when you get your sewing room set up you need to make
yourself an apron."
All my t-shirts are grease stained from cooking and baking.
But now I think the girls need some stuff for school
so I think the apron is on hold.
