Spring projects

This weekend I made a table runner for Easter. I found some cute Easter fabric in the attic and then embroidered this cute little chick with flowers onto a pale lavender center.
Some adorable Easter fabric I used for a new apron. It is the cutest vintage fabric. I got some for me and some for an apron that was ordered from a friend. I will get hers done tomorrow so she can have it for Easter too.

This is the other side of the table runner. I just loved the little chicks!




This is my apron. I have a million different patterns for all styles of aprons, but this is my favorite. Something about it just reminds me of an old farm grandma who loves nothing better than to make cookies for all the grandkids! Maybe that will be me someday:)





You know how sometimes you just buy something because you "have to" have it? Well, this little trim is one of those things. I saw it when I was in the attic and knew it was perfect for the pockets of my apron.


If you don't hear from me again soon, it's because we have washed away here on Long Island. The rain is coming and coming and bringing fierce winds with it. The river across the street is creeping closer to the road every hour. It's probably already 20 feet onto the grass and we have two days of rain left.
Oh, about a month ago I decided I had gotten fat enough for one year and marched myself into the nearest Weight Watchers to start the program. It's not really hard at all and I don't feel deprived in the least. So far, I have gotten rid of 12 pounds!! YAY!! Maybe I will wear shorts this summer after all.

Oh my, don't wash away!!! I love that vintage Easter fabric...so cute. It has been a while...missing you, Sheryl. Hubbs and I are headed for Haiti on a medical mission trip, so I will be gone for part of April....life has a way of getting busy, doesn't it. Will catch up later, however.

Hugs to you!!! Keep sewing!!!
