remember this apron?

This apron started it all.
I wrote about this apron a while back.
THEN, a friend admired it.
so-o-o...
I made another and gave this away.
This weekend, my daughter mentioned she needed a gift for
a college friend who loves to cook.
I said, how about an apron?
I can whip one up today?


She chose the fabric and I did the work!
Love that pocket!

Here is the apron I made for myself when I gave that
first one away.
(Thanks to another daughter who modeled them for me.)


Then, my husband asked if I had any finished baby quilts for two co-workers.
He knows that I'm sewing ALL the time.
Yes! I did have two baby quilt tops
ready to be quilted.
This fabric is what I call hand-me-down fabric.
When people know you like to sew, they like to
give you fabric!
I rarely say NO!
These little pink and white squares came to me
ALREADY CUT!
Can't beat that!



Love the backing on this one.



Trying out a closeup of my so-so quilting. :)

some more quilting!



I also had this quilt top made from the scraps from my last
baby quilts.
I used flannel for the pieced front
and
Cotton for the back.
Can you see the nursery rhyme fabric on the back?
Too cute!
