King of the Coals {Burlap Style}

And now for all you Dads out there who love to show off your skills at the barbecue grill
{wearing your Hot Potato Mitts} 

This is a very hilarious clip you Dads will really appreciate.

{I apologize, but you will have to scroll down to the very bottom of the page and pause the music on Play-list before you can hear this clip properly.....}

Note the wording
It is so funny!!!!
"...Then it's back to the house
Preppin' for the BBQ
Brats, Dogs, Rackaroos, Whatever
Get me on the Wieber, man
Nobody does it betta
Call me Lord of the Grill
I'm King of the Coals
Nanna's Secret Recipe
You know how I roll...." 

Good times!!!

Good Morning Friends!!
I can't get over how beautiful this month is.  The weather is mild and gorgeous.
No wind.  The sun is shining {but not tooooo hot....}

Oh, how I love September!
If only if t could be September all year around... 
My husband informed me that it is September only about 1/12 of the year....
Thanks Hon....!!!
 I have to keep positive and soak it up as long as I can!
Here is a custom order I sewed for Megan 
She wanted a Melissa burlap handbag, but without potato sack print.

She has great taste, because it turned out fun.
Update, July 24, 2012:
This pattern is now a free download.  Just follow this link for the Melissa Handbag
