It is sooooo nice to have Summer here. while I'm typing right now it's very gray and rainy, but in the 70's...I am not gonna complain...it could be windy and stormy.
I have been able to put thread to needle lately and here's what I've been working on...................................................
There was a Baby Shower recently and I created a little Momma apron using a vintage embroidery pattern and flour sack material. I'll embroider the baby's name on it and in the future more names can be added to make this a sweet family heirloom. A new baby bib and pacifier was included to complete the set. 'm also gonna add the baby's name to the bib.
I found this vintage crocheted apron and a very faded vintage towel, which I embroidered and embellished with beads. the embroidered piece will make a pocket for the apron. I was thinking of adding another coordinating fabric to make it a bibbed apron, but it's still in the design state.
I also found a pretty leaf and flower hand-tatted piece and immediately thought it would make a great apron, so, I found this perfect
Hydrangea fabric..I love the color combo of pinks and browns.
This is a future project I can't wait to start.
This is my keeper apron. I was born in California so I collect things with this theme. It's a 1950-60 souvenir apron. I embroidered the California to make is pop.
Naw, I didn't get this stitchy...hehe
This is my Wal-mart quilt for my porch swing. I love to sit out here at night with candles burning and night sounds. So relaxing.
Well, I gotta get goin. I'm goin out to trim some gardens..well help Jim do it.
