i'm in a bit of a conundrum. my work computer is blocked from blogs, ouch. ha. granted, the personal blog-world is in no way related to accounting, so i can understand. however, i have this little cable thing that connects my camera to my work computer and it does not work at my home computer. any ideas on what "cable thinger" i can use for my mac? i think i'm going to have to schedule a one on one training for this at apple i think. i can always go old-school and save my pics on my way computer, transfer them to my jump drive (that's what i call it, do people still call it that? i learned that term in like 03 or 04 so it could def be called something else by now), and then bring my jump drive home and save the pics on my mac. idea. i might do that today though, just for now, because i've been a sewing machine again and i have to show you these chaprons! lol, i mean aprons :)

i'll just keep you in suspense for now while you await some groovy apron pics...loves!

verda love

the phrase "verda love" is quite a play on words if i ever saw one...i do have love for the apron verda, but also my great grandmother's name was "Verda Love." what a sweet, sweet name. she wouldn't want me telling you all this either, but her middle name was Alree, Verda Alree Love. so pretty.

this apron is made of a crisp linen table runner, it was so hard to cut in half! i'd venture to say it's from the 60s and it's gorgeous!!
sweet little ribbons tie it around you, one thicker one and one thin one, pretty stinkin' feminine!
LOVE it!

did you miss me?

so...i greatly apologize for my lack of blogging, but a ton of stuff has been happening. bible study started on monday nights, choir started on wednesday nights, i'm in a book club with a book due this thursday and i bought it over the weekend (yikes), and a hurricane happened (my fam lives in houston so all weekend i was on the phone getting updates and damage reports)...and my camera decided to die on me. so while i have been a sewing machine, haha, i have no proof to show you on this blog. stay tuned...i borrowed a friend's camera and some should be up tonight or tomorrow :)

waltzing matilda

waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda, who'll come a waltzing matilda with me?
remember that song? haha love it.
well this is matilda. and ironically, she's very good at waltzing.
made of fabric circa 1970, she's groovy, baby.
but then a touch of lace adds the charm.
polka dot waistband with a wooden button.
a sweet gathered pocket, i love the contrast in fabrics here.
back...l-o-v-e it.


poppin' penelope

pop it like it's hot, penelope...
this one is funky, unique, and has some great color combos going on :)
close up of waistband and complimenting fabrics
pocket... the geometric shape of it vibes with the octagonal shape going on.
penelope's behind

lovin' loretta

this girl is simple, sweet, and soft
up close: hand-stitched and hand-crocheted doilie...
i found this at an antique store the other weekend.
sometimes you have to look long and hard but you can stumble upon that "perfect find."

my beautiful models...
this is my sister Chevonne and her 2 year old Lauren (she got a little half apron made of yellow tulle and then ribbon like her mommy's)...three week old Emily does not have an apron yet, but i'm sure one will be created shortly!

the Cady and Kimmy team!! these two gals are just plain crazy, however, they sure do model their matching aprons well! **thank you for sending pics, girls!**
it is really a special feeling when you see people enjoying your creations. that is cheesy, i know, but i work so hard on each of my aprons and then it's all worth it when people love them.
deep thoughts, by jack handy.

awestruck by Olive

it's hard to see olive's awesomeness through pictures, but i'll attempt.
the fabric is greens and grays with a floral print. it's a light cotton and because of all the gathers, she's a very full-bodied gal, if you know what i mean ;)

one rad pocket...stitched in contrast lime green thread, this has a very raw and vintage feel.
quite possibly my fav designed pocket yet waistband, a pretty sherbert green grosgrain
back side


jubilant josephine...

oh josephine, you're going to steal hearts looking that good!
this fabric is spunky, it's alternating yellow and organge apples, yum-o!
the waistband is a cream grosgrain with buttons every couple inches...
no worries, i didn't stay up all night sewing buttons, i bought the ribbon that way :)
coolest part of josie: this pocket is made from a hand-crocheted and hand-stitched doilie...
an amazing find at an antique store over the weekend!!
close up of the amazingness...each flower is made of tiny knots.
what meticulous work!

michelle my belle

Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble, tres bien ensemble
moment of truth: i did not know that french part of the song, i googled it. :)
this special apron was made for a bride (michelle) who happens to make cakes the fabric was all too perfect.

gathered pocket
wasitband, notice that beautifully matching seam!
side view, see the blue cake stitched in the corner?
