My friend and colleague lost her battle with cancer and has gone home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sue was one of the strongest people I have ever known. She persevered through many difficult days with this dreaded disease. Please pray for her family.

Size 4 Apron

This apron is the smaller version of the other apron that I made yesterday. The pattern is Cindy Taylor Oates "Little Retro Aprons for Kids". There are several different styles that you can make. It was easy to make and went together fairly quickly. The fabric was from "The Painted Pony Quilt Shop" in LaPorte Texas. It's called "Lily Ponds". Take care.

Another Apron

I made a new apron for my daughters friend, Abby. This pattern was really simple and I enjoyed making it. The fabric was from a quilt store in Austin "The Honey Bee". The fabric is a pretty a turquoise with pink roses. My next apron will be a size 4! I am headed to the store to get thread to match the green rick-rack. You would think, I would have a green that matched, I have tons of thread. But no, I have to go buy more! Does that ever happen to you? We live in a rural area where the nearest place to get thread is Walmart and it's about 20 miles away. This week has went by so fast. I hope your week is going good and you are getting alot accomplished!

Take care....

I'm back

Haley and I headed to Dallas with Fisher aboard to visit Linsi and Matt. We were almost to our destination when I had a flat on the car. We were detained for about an hour and half but a very nice man stopped and changed the tire for me. We played in a softball game that night with Linsi's team. They needed a few extra players to fill in and Haley and I did just that. We shopped at several stores and I went to a few garage sales and quilt stores while there. We are back home now and I have several projects I need to finish this week. Haley will be moving into her new place next week so I will post pictures later. Have a marvelous Monday!

Getting an early start on Christmas

I have not been blogging lately but I've been busy sewing more projects and trying to get a head start on Christmas goodies! I'm still making aprons and burp pads.We have a new quilt shop in Jasper. The shops name is Ms. Sammie's Quilt Shop located on Hwy. 96 South. She specializes in some really cute dish towels. She does a dish towel a month with cute appliques stitched on them. I bought the December applique towel and it turned out nice. That is pretty much what I've been doing in the sewing room.
Haley is home for a few weeks and we are planning a few short trips while she's home. My summer seems to be flying by so quickly. I have several friends who have been diagnosed with cancer and are taking treatments. Please remember these special people in your prayers, Sue Brooks, Taurus Hornsby, and Kathy Wilkerson. I hope you are having a great summer! Take care.
