My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Show and Tell

Show and Tell

I have finished more projects!!!

First off, I made two of these aprons. One for myself and one for a friend who wanted to do an apron swap with me.

They are backed in bottom weight denim. They are almost identical...only I know the 2 differences between them! heeheehee. The fabric for the fronts came from "my stash" and was left over fabric from a quilt I made my brother when he graduated from the Culinary Institute of America 3 years ago. The denim for the backs was fabric I inherited from my grandmother. As usual for me, I "made it up as I went along" don't ask me about the pattern or how I did it. :-)

Once Subvet saw the finished aprons he asked if I could make him one...he wanted it to say "Shut Up and Eat!"

Well, we had to negotiate the saying as there are children in the house who will learn to read sooner or later......

I was able to finish it just in time for Monday's cookout! I used a "one size fits all" pattern from Simplicity....but I had to add 10 inches (yes, ten) to the length so it would be more than a bib for my hubby. Interesting fact, Subvet and I have the same inseam. 32". He is 6'3, I am 5'5. Just goes to show that one size does NOT fit all!! (or any in this house). The fabric was more of that denim from my grandmother (I have no idea what she'd planned for all that heavy denim, it's 60" wide and I think she had 6 yards or so of it!) The black felt for the letters was left over from last Halloween

So there you have it!

I went to the quilt store Saturday :-) and bought the fabric to make Sugars' baby quilt so that will be the next thing for me to start....oh and my mom requested an apron/bib when she saw the one I made for myself Sunday so that's added to the list...along with the pattern I bought to make each hooligan a Yoyo-bear for Christmas...and the Christmas ornaments that we're going to start on in Aug....and.........

Nice! I need to make me a bibbed apron so I can eat with it on, since there is a hole in my chin and everything lands on my "shelf". That would be a sneaky substitute for actually wearing a bib.

Only I can't see what Subvet's says as my computer screen is so dark. (It's dying and I'm trying to keep it on life support until no-tax weekend in Aug.)

You know, I was just thinking last night I need to get started on Christmas stuff! Great minds, etc.

I like both those aprons and when your kids get over 18 and there are no grandkids yet I think you should make Subvet the "Shut up and eat" version!!

Oh I love the patchwork apron. Did you use a pattern? I have thinking of doing one with patriotic fabric scraps I have.
I love yours!
Haven't seen you post a Show and Tell lately or have I missed you?
Good to see you again.

oops....I musta erred on the security word...okay, try try again.

I said before, I love the colors of the apron...almost like a patchwork quilt.

I also pointed out that I love your opening line about your life/blog just below the photo.

There is an open invitation to stop by and view my show n tell project this week. Hope to see you there if you haven't dropped by already.
