For A Special Friend

A friend is going through some rough times lately with her hubby being unemployed for several months so I made her something special. It's been hard for them but they have faith that things will be alright and perhaps turn around soon. But she's been so wonderful to me with her generosity, kindness and faith and wanted a french country apron so I made this as a special gift for her. Maybe someone you know is going through rough times and you could make their days brighter by doing something wonderful. Isn't that what this life is all about? Hmmmmm....


  1. What a sweet thing to do for your friend!! Sometimes all it takes is a little gift or a hug to let someone know they are not alone.

  2. Absolutely lovely...bound to cheer up anyone going through bad times.

  3. OH, Connieness! You are the most wonderful one! How very sweet of you to think of your friend and gift her with this precious apron. That will certainly put a smile on her face and hope in her heart! You're very good at making aprons, my friend. This is so darling!
    Thanks for popping in to see me. I always love it when you visit.
    You are a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
