A little blue apron...

Before I post a photo of the little blue apron that I just made, I want to take a moment and say thank you to everyone. You all wrote such wonderful notes to me on this blog and so many sent lovely cards and mementos. Gosh, I feel so privileged to have so many persons who care enough to send a card, a loving thought and just kindness. We sometimes focus on the negative and forget that there are so many loving kind people out there. So thank you to each and every one of you!! I'm going to get on over to MJ's and try to thank everyone!!

Ya'll are the greatest!!

Hope you enjoy this little blue apron. It is a re-sew. I used one of my old dresses that I was going to donate, but loved the fabric so couldn't get rid of it. I was going to give this one away at MJ's, but my daughter saw it and fell in love with it. I joked that she really didn't have enough on the front topside, but she says, "Mom it's an apron, it is supposed to be big! LOL

This is the first thing that I have fully sewn on my old 1936 White Rotary. You can see it in the photos!!

I promise to do an apron give-away for July. I have some other sewing to do before I can even think of another apron. I did this one because I wanted to get to know the old machine. I love it, but my hubby just grinned and shook his head. He said it sounded like a tank, it rumbled the whole floor...he was in the basement. LOL....I swear when I get a new rubber roller/gasket thingey for it, it will sew through leather!!

Oh, the rick rack is vintage and the fabric was an old dress of mine. The pockets were thrifted from The Thrifty Quaker.

Oh, the apron giveaway will be from this blog perhaps and it will be a Christmas in July apron...I have some exquisite vintage fabric I'd like to use! Well, it is just a simple calico, but it is wonderful with a Christmas print on it!


Final thoughts...

Thank you for visiting today. Feel free to sit for a spell and wander through my archives of sewing projects, aprons, original poems and stories, musings and vintage treasures. I really love guests in my home....and if you wish, leave me a comment so I will know you were here! AG
