My Mother just celebrated her 82nd birthday and this is the gift I made for her. A Santa apron. I didn't get a photo of Mother with the apron on but before I gave it to her, I had Retired Hub put it on so I could get a photo. He is such a good sport. Mother loved her apron and promised me that she would wear it, but not when making pies because she would get it so messy.
From a pattern called "Santa's Helper" by Cotton Ginnys.
Finished two more blocks for my Soul Searching quilt.
I am going to call this "Searching for Scraps" I think. Believe it or not, after showing you all my scrap bins a few posts ago, I am having a hard time finding the variety I require in each colour family to make each block. I wanted to be able to not repeat a fabric, but that was not possible. A lot of my scraps are smaller in width than required. As I look back over the last several years, I have made a lot of scrap quilts. I still have a ton of scraps, but this project is a scrappy challenge for me. I will make it work though. I promise not to buy anything new or use my stash. Scraps only. That makes six blocks made now and I have decided to make the nine blocks. It will be what it will be.
