Quilt Top Progress!

Happy to see so many pieces sewn together.  Taking a break while my hands spring back to life! I might finish this quilt top for Sully after all! I am still in love with the colors and plan to get the top made and then have it quilted at a local quilt shop.  My old arthritic fingers won’t allow me to hand quilt, I’m afraid.  I’m enjoying a bit of uninterrupted sewing time while my husband is in school and I am hold-up in a hotel during the day. It’s nice to spend our evenings together, eating out and lots of good conversations.  

Until next time, I am

my favorite apron pattern

I have made several aprons in this style. Some for me. Some for sale. Back in the day, in another life I had a fairly brisk business of making soaps, aprons and other cool things.This is by far my favorite apron to wear (and sew). I would love to get back into some sort of similar business venture (sans soap) if the future allows. This pattern can be purchased from Friends Patterns.

This latest one is made from a medium weight 100% cotton duck. The care instructions say dry clean but please…I washed it and dried it and it’s soft and lovely! The only real change I made in the pattern was putting only one pocket. I contemplated putting a “hammer loop” to hang a dish rag from but then forgot about it. Still may add it. It seems like a good idea.

Until next time, I am
