Yesterday Isabel and Joy came over to work on projects and have a little lunch. Joy and I decided to make an apron while Isabel ironed some of her vintage linens. The aprons we worked on were from a pattern Joy brought with her that I absolutely loved. It took me all day to finish my apron, but I loved how it turned out.
Joy has some pictures on her camera that I'm sure she will show on her blog. Her apron was adorable made from the cutest vintage ballerina drapery fabric.
Today after dropping off the kids at school, I decided to do a little thrifting and headed down the road to Goodwill. I was so disappointed when I got there and found out that they have changed their hours and now open at 9am (instead of 8am) so I just turned around and went home. Since I still had all my sewing stuff out, I decided to go ahead and make this.
This one is a little different than the one I made yesterday. No pockets and the fabric is lighter weight. I'm going to just wear this one like a smock over a white t-shirt and jeans. This one only took me a couple hours to make instead of the whole day. Now I want to make a bunch more. They are so fun and easy to put together when you finally figure it out.
Finally, here is a little something I want to show you. To thank me for inviting her to Thanksgiving dinner, Isabel gave me the sweetest little card with a hand painted rose on it. I dug through my stash of vintage frames and found a perfect one to hold the little painting and now it sits proudly on my little shelf in my bedroom with my other mini rose paintings. I just love it!
Wishing you all a very happy Thursday and a great weekend!
