The class of 1981 met for their3oth class reunion on Saturday,August 27, 2011.I brought our Senior yearbook alongto look at. Three of us gals were partof the yearbook staff our senior year.We used the yearbook to try to figureout who people were as they walked by.Yes, they had name tags on but whocould see them from a distance?A photographer attempted to takea "class photo" of us and this is what Ken was able to get withour camera. It was a little bitlike getting Kindergarteners to pose for a photo! :)Here are the three "Amigas."My friend Missy, who I haveknown since Kindergartenis in the middle and our friend Gale is on the end. We are the threesome that was on the year-book staff. Oh, what fun we had!!A really cute guy--I should ofasked him out!!!

Back in July we went to some garage sales in a friend's neighborhood.I found these tea towels at my friend's sale. Not really knowing what I wanted to do with them, Ibrought them home. Put them in my sewing room and left them.Well in my wanderings I decided to make another tea towel apron.Some of you will remember that I made a set of these for a bridal shower at school a couple of yearsago.I ironed one of the aprons and then using Heat Bond, ironed the ribbon I found in my stash on the apron.I wanted a pocket on this apronso using part of the other tea towel I figured and measured for the pocket. Since the fabricis striped, I wanted the pocketstripes to go vertical as opposedto horizontal.I folded the raw edges under beforesewing the pocket onto the apron.The side edges were already sewn.After I sewed the pocket on I seweda line down the middle of the pocketsew it was two pockets instead of one big one.Voila! Here is the completed apron.
I am hoping my bloggingfriends can help.What would one wear to a place called Brew Top Pub and Patiofor a high school reunion?There will be a DJ, dancing,cash bar and hors d' oeuvres.The main menu will also beavailable.This is on Saturday evening at 7:00in the evening. It is supposed to be sunny and 87 that day.I'm thinking one would lean onthe "business" casual side of clothing choices????? Don't youthink that would work?~Keep on Dreaming~

My job takes me back to elementary school where I work with students who have special needs and in the summer I play! During my playtime, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, crafting, cooking, reading, gardening and blogging to name a few. I also enjoy watching football both pro and college. Go TIGERS!
