Apron Swap!

May 8, 2010

Hello Buttercups,

What a week this was, started out with a ruined apron, on the day after I was supposed to mail it and ended with a new car…

I joined another apron swap last month, my first swap in over a year. It was great to be creating again and was I excited about the apron I had planned.  It took a while for me to make my apron this time. The theme was polka dots and my partner liked pink and black.

I decided I was going to make my polka dots with my embroidery machine. It was not hard to do but it was time-consuming. I was done with this little bugger and when I took it out of the washing machine there were little bleached spots all down the front of it…. My heart sunk and it was back to the old Bernina.

I didn’t have to go to the fabric store, my stash had everything I needed.

I was told my apron was for a 11-year-old lady, who loved to cook and was a little bit punk. So here’s what I made

I made it reversible so if she doesn’t feel punky one day, she doesn’t need to show it. She can just be polka dotty!

I really hopes she loves it and wears it often.

I, in turn received a fabulous apron in beautiful rich fabrics that’s fun and flirty.

It was Debbie, Miss Fabulous’ first swap and she scored an A++++.

I’m sure she’ll be a swapper for life now….

Don’t ya just love it!!!!

Well as I said in the beginning my week ended with a new car,  yep Momma’s got a new ride…

Now, how sexy is that!!!!

Well until next time,,,, sew on girl, sew on…..

I’ve signed up for a swap, my first in over a year.  This swap is organized by the famous Shawnee, she has had many, many apron swaps which are always fun and filled with surprises.

The swap theme is Polka Dots, so I took some time out today to go shopping and found this beautiful piece of fabric…


But where the heck are the polka dots………


I guess I will find them here…….

 Better get started……..

I Think I Just Solved The Problem….

November 10, 2009


In my last post I talked about how I’m a sewer who just happens to quilt. I think I’ve solved that problem now,


Come to MaMa!!!!!!

I was going to ask for this for Christmas, but a girl’s got to do, what a girl’s got to do.   The Accuquilt, a die cut machine for fabric. Boy, is my quilting group going to love me……. 

I just happen to be a sewer who quilts.

Well, I’ve been a busy bee since yesterdays Sunday Stash. I’ve measured. I’ve cut. I’ve sewed, and I’ve recut again and again.


 In all the craziness I’ve come to the conclusion your either a quilter, or a sewer who quilts. Guess what, I’m a sewer you just happens to quilt.

Now don’t get me wrong they’re both amazing talents, but a quilter can make fabulous quilts with all the points perfect and when it says “you’ll end up with a 5 1/4″ square,” they always do.

A sewer who quilts also can make fabulous quilts, but somehow they don’t measure up. When it says “you’ll end up with a 5 1/4″ square,” you really end up with a 5″ square.

I’ll keep trying…..

Have a Fabulous Day


Sunday Stash

I think I’m finding more things to do, instead of getting things done!

I bought this fabric to match a jelly roll I purchased from Missouri Quilt Company. Love the web store. If you’ve never heard about this place go check it out. I have to say I’ve taken advantage of their daily deals, and their costumer service is the bomb!

I will be making a quilt for my friend Susan. I  met Susan on a Yahoo Group message board about 2 1/2 years ago. She has been a great support to me these last few months and I want to make her something in return.

My plan is to get it done before Thanksgiving, so keep your fingers crossed.

Have a Fabulous Day

I did not want to love these beauties as much as I do…… They take me back to my high school days.  Are they not fabulous?

I’m in the middle of making a quilt, just for me. The quilt will be mostly white and spiced up with these beauties!

Have a Fabulous Day Cupcakes,
