It is a 2 sided apron for when you are working hard in the house and the door bell rings. You can just whip off your dirty apron and turn it over and you have on a nice clean apron for company. (That is unless you’ve already turned it over once.)

This is what his dad said about it…
”We just discovered that Ike is blind as a bat. The eye doctor kept saying, "whoa" every time he made an adjustment. He made a point to let us know that Isaac has more than your average bad eyesight. He's unique. “
And I miss him much.
Ikie Grammy Loves You!

So I’ll show you a few fun things I have been doing.
First off here is the apron I made for the Fall round of the
1- A full apron for good coverage for all that holiday baking.
2- Include a hot pad to use in all that holiday baking.
3- A pie recipe to be used in holiday baking
Well as you can see I did homage to the pie.
You can check out all the taste pie recipes I included at my food blog.
I am finding that this is quite a challenge to work off of someone else’s idea, make it your own and still leave it possible for someone else to add onto it also.
Last of all. Last Saturday my husband and I went to the Walnut Valley Guitar Festival. Man was it great. National music competitions etc.
I just wanted to show off what I picked up at one of the craft booths. All I can say is that I wished I had a pair of knitting needles the rest of the day. Noting better then listening to great music and knitting. OH yeah we did snarf a funnel cake with powdered sugar. I guess I did blow the diet for that day.

Gwen has fussy cut little pictures bordered them with blue and yellow. Then she cut them askew and sashed them with red. Look at the detail on the mitterd boarder. Such attention to detail. Great work!
All these great sea scapes.
This woman just looks sad to me. I wonder if she is missing her homeland. I can tell you I am sure enjoying a little bit of Brittany via Germany.

Srcap Fabric Swap

A close up of one of the treasures.
It was really fun to get these fabrics. I love fabrics! With several of my daughters at home the last 2 weeks I had to really guard them well.
My mind keeps thinking of tots and little clutches and other girly things to make with these wounderful pieces. May be an accent on an Apron or 2.
Thank you all for Playing so nicely with me and being patient while I played with my Grandchildren.

I'm for that
Got my rubber sandals,
Got my Straw Hat.
It's my favorite time of the year
and I'm glad that it's here.
Just a little song by James Taylor that has been going through my head that last few days.
Well here is my summer SASSY APRON for someone special. But I won't say who.
My sister told me that this was an apron that my Mother's Mother would always make for the Church bazaars when my mother was frowing up. Well I am alwasy up for a chaneges when it comes to sewing so I came up with a pattern using my quilting tools. It was time consuming and I know of alot of ways to make it faster now that I have finished it. But that is for next time.
Clsoe up of the waist band. The one rule for summer was that you must..."The apron has to have some sort of embellishment this time like Ric-rack, fancy trims, decorative stitching, BUT must be washable so NO GLUE.) " Well I used NO GLUE!!! I sewed every thing.
Here is the close up of the hem detail.
I did end up making it revesable. I was just going to line it but if you go to the work of linning it you might as well make it pretty and sassy on both sides.

I just want to thank her.
Thanks Mom for taking the time to teach me to cook. I have fed my family for years now.
Here we all are right after my Father's funeral. What a crown of jewels.
Mother went back to school when I was in Jr. High. It took her several years of summer school and night classes but she graduated from collage in August of 1974. I was so proud of my mother for that. She became a kindergarten teacher after me parents moved to rural Missouri. She taught in the public schools until she was 72.
She was well loved but her teaching influence started way before that. I remember Mom reading to us every night when I was growing up. We didn't have a TV in the home for most of my life and this was a great way to keep us quiet for a while. But because of this we are all avid readers. We have had many family discussions on books we have read all the way from Harry Potter to Lord of the Rings. The interesting thing is that Mom rarely read a novel for herself. She said that she felt that her time was too precious so she needed to use it wisely. Mom always read the news paper, Church magazines, Educational journals and all of the National Geographic(not just the pictures).
Thanks Mom for reading to me.
Because my Mother made parenting look so easy and installed in her children the importance of family she now has close to 1oo descendants. Every year she makes a handmade Christmas ornament for her grand children and great grand children.
I now am contunuing the tradition with my own grand children.Here is a wonderful 4 generation picture with me, Mom, Madi, and Rachel.
Thanks again Mom for being such a good example to me.
