76. Two more Aprons too Crossover: 1st (Plaid)

Double Sided

These are my latest fabric finds for two more crossover aprons. I’m finished with the plaid and have already cut out the linen. I’ll probably pick up more linen with a different pattern and make my one linen apron into two aprons by splitting up the different patterned fabric. This will give me a two sided apron with opposite patterns.

Pockets & Loops

With this apron I decided to add two pockets, one on each side for convenience. The loop was added because not everyone has a wooden, peg rack to hang all their beautiful aprons on, some of us just have a small hook in a utility cupboard. This time I placed the pockets to the sides of the apron and not out front.

This is a very roomy and comfortable apron, that is easy to cook and clean in. The convenience of the pockets to put nick-knacks in as you muck about the house is a benifit to any house keeper who will always run out of jean pocket room while vacuuming the house especially when they’re kids involved. I never knew what I’d find on a cleaning day, an apron like this would have been great when my children were young. When Lego and Hot Wheels were to be found everywhere in my house.

Question:

Would you sew an apron like this for yourself?

God Bless & Keep Sewing On

Until I sew again, thanks. Jennifer

P.S. I’ve checked out the linens at Fabricville and will be not picking out a different patterned linen to compliment the fabric I have now. I didn’t see anything that I thought would be a good match. I will start sewing the linen apron today.

74. The 2nd Irish Dancing Wall Quilt, done!

The long Journey home

 Now, when did I start this journey? I believe it was Spring 2017 that a friend asked me to design two Irish dancing wall quilts for her little dancing girls. It is now Spring 2019 and both girls are happy with their wall quilts, and this makes me happy as well. A  project of this magnitude took me a long way from where I was. Many life events have happened along the way; some of them being quite sad while others have embarked my family right across the country for a new start.  My family has come so far since starting these wall quilts. My first boy is finishing his first year of High School and survived while my second son is finishing his second year of home schooling and I’ve survived. Now I just have to get the move under my belt and its smooth sailing, at least through the summer. Then a new school year begins.

Down memory lane

I’ve had to put my sewing blog on hold just to get some things finished and there is still a long list of things I have to do for the move. So this post shall be short and sweat!

God Bless to you all & Sew On

Thanks Jennifer
