Mother's Day Finishes


I finished up a couple Mother's Day gifts this week.


I found this rick rack 
 (the narrowest rick rack ever) 
 in my grandmother's sewing cabinet and wanted to incorporate it into
the apron I made for my mom.

I wish you could buy notions for 15 cents now.

I chose a watermelon fabric because my Mom grew up on a farm and my grandfather raised watermelon.
My grandfather was known for his wonderful watermelon and was called the
Watermelon King of Sumner County.


She asked me to make her an apron that crisscrossed in the back and buttoned at the shoulders
a few years ago.

I put the rick rack on the front of the pocket to give it a little of my grandma's love.

The apron is on it's way to make my momma smile for Mother's Day.


There is another special lady who will have an apron for Mother's Day.


My MIL loves to quilt, so I made her a reversible apron adorned with a few quilt blocks.


This is the reverse.  
 The fabric is by Quilting Treasures and the main fabric is called Just a Pinch
with herbs and spices all over it - perfect for an apron.

It's been an apron week, but I do have a couple quilts to show you soon...


I even have a picnic to share with you next month.


Happy Mother's Day weekend,

I think I have some of that tiny rick rack! I also remember the back side of the paper on the package said you could write to the company and receive free trim scraps for crafting. Or maybe that was on the bias tape package. I don't think they do that anymore!
