what it felt like to sew cotton! I've been cranking out oilcloth stuff for so long, I needed a little break from it.
Over at http://apronista.ning.com/ there is a monthly project. April's was to use Recycled/repurposed/vintage fabrics.
I had the vintage table runner with pink crochet trim (maybe from my sister's MIL?) and I have been looking at it forever, knowing that it wanted to be something else. I just couldn't take scissors to it (I'm funny like that) and then it hit me... turn it sideways, gather it and it will be an apron!!! I added an embroidered hanky from my sister and Calamity Kim's shopping exursion in Sarasota last year. The waistband is new fabric.
It felt so good to run cotton through my sewing machine.
My little friend Hope is doing amazingly well. She had her surgery on Thursday and is recovering at a much better rate than anticipated. They are hoping to be back home in a few weeks. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, I really believe they work.
