Melting Kat and Hollyhocks...

1 comment:
It is soooo hot today,,, my poor cat is melting... lol!
poor 'mamamoo'... she is slowly melting on the chair,,, we are now in the 100's degree weather.. oh joy!

Last year a friend let me dig up a couple of Hollyhock seedlings,,, one survived the winter and this is what it did,,, mind you, it was only 2ft tall when I transplanted it.

as for the Flamingo,,, it loves it's location.... it scares the quail away... lol!

And More Aprons....

No comments:
I had some down time,, while the new flooring was being installed,,, so I stitched up 3 more aprons..
 unfortunately the true colors are a bit washed out,,,
 this one is more of a teal/purple and rust color... the floral part is a giant pocket, stitched down the middles and a small hankie pocket  is on the one side...
this one is a combination or rose and burgundy,,, again, washed out photo.... I trimmed the little pocket with pink ball fringe...
and as always, yoyos to trim the waist band...
I love using up scraps  of fabric...

Aprons are popping up everywhere in my sewing room..
I was able to get 3 more completed yesterday...
Sewing is great therapy...
 got to use up some fabric scraps from the cobbler aprons that I stitched up...
 I make really long ties and embellish with yoyos....
 I love being able to use up fabric bits...
I used 3 different fabrics to make this full/wide pocketed apron...with a hankie pocket on the large pocket...
I also finished up another cobbler apron and 2 repurposed aprons last week...
 my cobbler apron,,, luv the full pockets...
 I made this sweet hostess apron from a pair of sheer cafe' curtains...
and this fun one use to be a pillow case...
Gotta love repurposing....
