Days Fly By!

The days seem to be passing faster and faster. I can hardly keep up with all that is going around. Ds is enjoying his art class and having fun. I am glad that last week as our last gym class. Now we are able to stay at home and get more accomplished.

I finished my apron for the apron swap at MJF. I am new to sewing and had to make a couple of corrections along the way but was happy with how it came out. I loved the fabric.


I added some lace I had bought at the antique store before it closed. I thought it added a nice special touch.
The St. Patrick's Crafts were also finished and mailed off in time. I kept trying to come up with a good idea and this is what came of it. I have received an adorable St. Pat's craft from a girl who is close by and a filet crochet shamrock. Both are adorable and I need to take pictures of them.
My tea cozy from our swap also came in. I'm behind on pictures but hope to catch up this week.

Last week was the first week I did not have a package to mail at the post office. I have enjoyed the swaps and all the new people and great ideas. More inspiration!

Below is the wonderful apron and many other goodies I received from my partner. The apron is just beautiful. I love the fabric and the pattern. She did such a great job. I also received many extra treats from her. The towels are hanging in my kitchen and I have used the pot holders and dishcloth many times already. I really needed new potholders and these are just great.

Ruth- You did an amazing job, Sweetie! You are becoming quite accomplished at making aprons! Have you ever heard of the Bluebird of Happiness? The park that we visited is where they create these little works of blown glass art. I'm so glad you enjoyed my pictures! It truly is a wonderful park! Lori

That apron you made was so gorgeous. What talent you have. Sounds like you have a full plate like I do. Mine gets a little less full as of April 3!! Cannot wait for more home time.

Love all of the crafts you make.
