Spring and Prom (picutre heavy post!)

Well, spring has sprung around here, trees are budded and blooming and of course that means Prom.
Our daughter is a senior, as had her prom this past Saturday.
Here are a few shots of her and her friends. She has more friends, but these kids have grown up together. THey had a beautifully sunny day. Although a little windy, still beautiful. Ashleigh is the one in yellow (duh!).
Another thing with spring is the fact that Alex will miss it this year. I think I will send him some pictures. He says all he sees is sand. :) The dishcloths you see are crocheted, and are for our churches mission trip to Brazil in June. I have a couple more weeks,( I'm making twelve of them to take to the 12 pastors wives), but this is such an easy, and nice pattern.
Easy to memorize and makes a really nice thick, nubby fabric. Also, is the nice swap package I got from Diana.
I still won't show hers, yet, as I'm not sure she's gotten it yet. I had all the stuff, almost the entire month, just didn't get it mailed out. She made me a beautiful butterfly dishcloth
and a very cool sunflower. Looks hard to me.
She sent me a lot of other goodies. Very fun. I am taking a couple months off of the swap, due to all the busyness around here. Oh yes, how could I forget, look what I got from my mother and father-in-law for mothers day... a beautiful vintage apron. I see many aprons on lots of your blogs (lovely by the way) and I have several already, but this one matches my living room, which is visible from my kitchen.
I wore it today in fact, had to take it off for the pictures. Fun, Fun! If I ever get real adventurous, I might actually make my own. Sewn, not knit. I have added the fourth color(red) on Alex and Anna afghan, when I get a little more done, I will show you. It does look real pretty, still think its a huge project. Maybe wedding, maybe 1st anniversary, we'll see!! LOL :) Anyway, I know I rambled a bit, but thanks as always for visiting, and come back soon!!
