Thankful not to be Cooking Apron

That's right. I am not cooking one thing for Thanksgiving. I made a pecan pie earlier in the week and will make a pumpkin pie with J later, but tomorrow, nothing. Our dear friends in Tahlequah invited us out to their family's feast. I made this apron for Joan, who is hosting, with that same Indygo Junction pattern (or rather inspiration from the pattern, as I still haven't BOUGHT it) I used for Marlene's fall apron. It is reversible. One side is made from Moda charms (can't remember the name) and on the other side we made hand turkeys with the kids' hands. I think it turned out pretty cute.

It's About Time!!!

I found this pretty apron pattern at my fabric shop last week. It is the Lilly Apron from Busy Bee Quilt Designs. I used fabrics that I found from the 50% off room. It really took no time at all and I love it enough to post a picture of my backside to show you just how cute the back is. My 4 year old helped me take pictures of it today.

My partner Becky from the We the People Swap II sent me these wonderful fabric organizers. She sent her first and second "attempts", but honestly I love them both and couldn't tell you which was the first. The striped one has the cutest applique on the side. I've already put them to use and had to empty them out to take this picture. Becky also included a lovely, matching pin cushion (also in use) and this pattern for car organizers...which I really need to get made and in my car. Thank you, Becky!
For those of you who asked what pattern I used for the chair organizer that I made for my partner (see post below): McCall's Crafts #4274.

Holy Smokes

I am so behind on this blog. I do have some cool things to post like the way cute package I received from my latest swap...We The People II, and other projects I've been working on. I finished the Halloween costumes in the nick of time you can see photos of the kids in their digs on my family blog. I promise to get up some pictures soon.
