and...done!

i finished the halloween aprons that i made for our grandmas restaurant. i think they turned out cute. i cant decide if i want to add ric rac to a few more or not?? i usually love ric rac but wonder if it is just going to get snagged on stuff and tear off?? anyway...here are a few pictures sorry they are so dark but there is no sunshine today. What do you think??





p.s i still need to press them. love *h

i heart camp!

i had a great time at quilt camp of course! it was so nice to visit with everyone and do lots of catching up. i got a few things accomplished....not everything that i would have liked but thats ok! i did get the borders and sashing on my halloween embroidery quilt...........so cute! it is kind
of hard to see it in this picture but i love how the border looks like vintage halloween fabric! i also finished a quilt using cotton blossom, (far left) learned how to make table runners using border fabrics and a triangle ruler super fun.........thanks Dawn! you can check out her blog here-----------------------> at dquilts.blogspot.com and i also made a cute little turkey wall hanging. (far right) and then i think i was starting to get a bit lazy so i took scraps and found some green fabric and made a cute wall hanging that kind of has a shabby chic/cottage vibe! i also got a little bit of binding sewn down on a quilt! all in all it was a great time with friends old and new! i will try and put up better pictures later. xoxo heather
