This, that and the other....

Quite a few things crossed off my to do list today. Also received some new fabrics for my stash in the mail. Don't they look yummy???  Wonder if the recipes work?

I was able to complete two out of three of my swap aprons. And the third may be completed before the day ends. Now I just need to get the goodies packed to ship.

For the Tea for Two apron swap I had originally planned on using this fabric but changed my mind as my partner likes green and yellow. If you thought  I would show you what it looks like you'll have to wait because my swap partner reads my blog sometimes.

For the Fiesta Apron Swap I had a really hard time. My swap partner does not like orange. All the fiesta fabrics I found had a large amount of orange in them. This was my first choice.



See what I mean? I went another whole direction with it and hope she likes it anyway. It is bright and cheery with much less orange.

The last one to make is the vintage apron swap. I have the fabric and like I said....maybe I will get it cut out tonight. While going through my vintage linens I found a bunch of heavy napkins with a button hole in one corner. Were these made to button on to shirt buttons? Does anyone know?

Now on to sewing quilt squares together.
