Latest Project ...

Hello Everyone!

Hope this finds you all doing healthy, happy & smiling! With the holidays quickly approaching, I have had to put aside all of my cross stitching until after in order to complete projects that we will be giving as gifts to family & friends. I have several blankets that I am & will be making. Also my Mom's birthday is coming up. She has been asking for a couple of years for a handmade apron for when she's cooking & baking & such. So this year I decided to make not one but two for her! I've made one that is a festive Christmas theme. And the second one is going to be in her favorite color orange/peach for her to use on an everyday basis. I have finished the Christmas one, and posted pictures here for you all to see. The second apron I am still working on, and should be finished with either tonite or tomorrow. I will post pictures of the second one as soon as I finish it. It has been so much fun making the aprons. And I can't wait to hear how my Mom likes them. She lives in TX and I am in AZ, so as soon as they are finished I will mail them priority to her. I have already told her that once she receives the box in the mail, she is not allowed to open it until she has me on the phone so that I can hear her first impressions of them! I'm so excited!!! These are the first aprons that I have ever made, and I really feel the Christmas one turned out great! And the second one will be really nice also! Let me know what you think! :~)

Hope you are having an excellent Friday nite!

Happy Stitching/Sewing/Crafting!!!

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥

that is something that I need to learn to make. when I bake I am covered in whatever I am using. Yesteday it was flour and powered sugar.
