The Gypsy Rose
I haven't had much time to sew or be on the computer the past three days. Finished day three of new employee orientation. Another sleeper! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Did pass my pharmacology test today with flying colors...no problem. I guess I am safe to pass medications. (Gosh I hope so after twenty years of doing so!) Anyway, I had a wonderful package I love her tea! I drank the gypsy rose tea while sewing this apron tonight.sitting on my porch when I got home from work today. Kathy sent me a beautiful fabric remnant that is now the Gypsy Rose apron. It is made for a bigger waistline, so it wraps around my sewing figure, Andrea, a little more than usual so the pockets seem spaced a little wider apart, but on my abundantly blessed farmgirl body, it is just right. I might just have to keep this one for myself. I used the gorgeous rose chintz remnant as the main part of the apron, then a cotton homespun for the pockets and waist and ties and added a touch of the antique cotton lace on the pockets. Hope you enjoy it. Kathy also sent me some fabulous goodies.....TEA!! she knows Also a to die for tea cup, it is very old and delicate. It is in my china hutch right now, just waiting for me to use it. I used my super size mug tonight because I was working with the machinery. She also sent the cutest Whinnie-the-Pooh scarf...I love it...and her precious Rosebud teddy is visiting with my girls for a few days. Dani is sleeping with Rosebud tucked under her arm right now! Kathy you are a sweetheart. I hope you are dancing nikked under the moon or bathing in that moonlight pool right now and enjoying this beautiful summer solstice!! I thank you for the wonderful goodies and the fabric is being pretreated right now. It is gorgeous!!! I think the jumper is going to be wonderfully beautiful!
One more day of orientation this week, so off to bed with me for now. Love you all and thanks for reading my blog. Don't ya just love long ties on aprons? I do. They might not be practical, but I think they look so feminine. Sometimes I like to wrap my ties around and tie them in the front too.
Hugs and lots of love to everyone,
