Mad about Plaid .... and some really cute aprons.


I love plaid.

I fell in love with my husband because he wore a red plaid shirt.  Seriously.

I am totally hooked on plaid.  It has become a joke that every shirt I buy Honey is plaid.  Specifically, red plaid.

I am convinced it all stems from my irrational crush on Norm Abrams.  Love a man with power tools!

But back to the plaid........







New linen garden skirt.

No ... it is not red.  It is magenta and peach.  And I love it.  Even though it will always be wrinkled.  Really wrinkled.  Matches my skin. 

Welcome to AARP membership!

And then -- I have been trying to find an easy shirt to make and wear in the garden.....



This shirt is super comfortable -- easy to make.  I love the poly linen for its easy care.

But I am not quite pleased with its fit .......

I swear this is why women quilt...... you don't worry about fit!




But the sewing turned out nicely .... and I really like the overcast stitch on my machine for finishing seams.

So those are two new projects for the 52 projects in 52 weeks.



These are for the Summer Kitchen!

The Church lady aprons have been growing wings and finding new homes!!!!! 

So get them while I have them .... I may not have the time to sew in the summer so if you see them ... buy them. 

I will no longer hold merchandise more than 24 hours or until the next day we are open.

But you have to look at these cute fabric combos......

Yea ....



It is in the Summer Kitchen now.  It may not be for long. 

Really.

Green.

Pink.

Cute.  :)

I'm just sayin' ..........


Equally cute.

The Summer Kitchen will be open Friday and Saturday from 10-3.

I'll be the dirty one.
