Ok, so I love all the beautiful aprons I have seen, and the fabrics, and the memories of my childhood ones, and mom's and grandma's. But, honestly, when would this jeans and t-shirt gal need one. I'm proud of the dirt I get on me..I earned it. Easter dinner prep made a believer of me. At the last minute, I decided to add a cheesecake to the menu. The old mind drifted for a minute, and I was wearing cheesecake spatters in hair, glasses, face, new shirt. (sigh). I'm looking at patterns now. I ended up wearing a tea towel tucked into the neck of my shirt until just before the guests came. Its just lucky I remembered to pull it off.

I had to laugh over the apron event with Judith....i used to wear those 1/2 aprons that just covered the front lower half of you & found that when I wiped my hands it was always across my rump...now tell me that apron worked???!!!!Apron stayed nice & clean but if I turned around you saw floured hand prints...so I just got a 1950's pattern for the aprons that cover that area as well so now maybe after 52 yrs my apron will actually get dirty....Michele'

I have been busy using my embroidery machine. Working on quilt squares that can be used for anything. Here are a couple of pictures:


I love my machine and all the projects I can do with it.

Today I'm working on finishing my vintage dress. This is the first time I have tried using a vintage pattern. The directions weren't especially good and pieces didn't match up right.

Since I finished helping my daughter with her skirt, I am going to start a little project I call, "Cover all those wire hangers with yarn" project. I have a plethora of wire hangers and I am tired of things falling off of them. So I will try to do one per week and it should take me the rest of my life to finish this one. LOL


I'll post pics when I get one done.

The dress is using a 1930's pattern & made a belt with an antique metal button on beaded wide lace
The shirt/jacket has different laces & doilies on it plus a cross stitch rooster iron on from the 1940's on the front....2 round doilies are used as button holes for the old brown buttons....dyed with Curry powder & a bit of yellow dye...back has a unusual long doily plus the back is longer than the front & the bottom lace you see is actually from an antique bedspread....Michele'

I'm working on knitting some new washcloths (using 100% cotton yarn) my other ones are getting old & I'll use them for cleaning the house & so forth. The pattern I'm using calls for making cables,so this is a good new way to stretch my needle know-how. I just finished another pair of knitted slippers that MJF printed the instructions for a year or so ago. Michele-good work on the clothing!

I am making pot holder sets, along with one crocheted throw, and one crocheted blanket. I am also cutting up more old sheets and pillow cases for another future rag rug.

I just started a quilt for a grandbaby due in July as well.....I was stuck for several days, thinking and thinking about how I wanted to do this one! The mom is using sage green and browns and wants to go with a jungle theme....I found the perfect material a few weeks ago...2 different prints....but had no idea how I wanted to do it! Finally I thought of using a 12" X 12" scrapebook page as a pattern.....cut the squares out....then decided to cut those squares into triangles...then cut again....NOW....I have them all cut and will mix and match the triangles into squares again, alternating the prints, and sew together...I plan to tack it with matching yarn...Hope it turns out good!!

Hello All!

I just finished working on custom ordered pillow covers for a sweet Etsy customer. Made from vintage fabrics and laces. She picked out these fabrics from my stash, and I love what she choose.


Thanks for letting me share.
