Good News and Unfinished Projects!

It's amazing how much sewing one can get done when they take a big blogging break! :)

I told you I had a ton of unfinished projects that needed to be done... and I wasn't kidding..

First up? Two Spring aprons made using my Auntie Dot's Apron pattern!
LinkSpring Aprons

For the first apron, I cut a piece of white fabric for the pocket and used the pattern found HERE to embroidery these cute little birds on the front... So pleased with the way it turned out!

A little pink ric rac was the perfect way to finish it off...

I used the same pattern but added a little ruffle to the bottom of the 2nd apron.

And instead of the large pocket on the front, I made small little rounded bottom pocket. I found the adorable Easter Rabbit pattern on-line and had fun embroidering him...

I love the buttons on the egg!

Finished just in time for Easter Sunday too!

The Good News??? I'll be re-opening my Etsy Shop soon!

I have 2 finished quilts to show you! And another apron! And I'll have templates and the Auntie Dot's pattern for sale. So be watching for an announcement here.

Happy Sewing !

I like the aprons. When I cook, I don't use one but I'm thinking I need to make a cute apron.

I know you've been taking a break from blogging but just want to let you know that you are missed!

Those are some of the cutest aprons I have seen!! Glad to hear you are reopening your shop. I made a quilt for friends with some snowman fabric I bought from you and they just love it.

May you and your family have a glorious Easter.

Love these! So cute. I'd love to make them! I'm going to keep trying, but I can't get the search to work on the site where you obtained the embroidery pattern. I'll keep trying tho! These really are lovely, look forward to your pattern. Bg
