ISN'T THIS ADORABLE?



I just love this, the colors, the style but most of all because it was made by a very dear friend of mine and she made it for me....for me....for me.... did I say how much I love it? She doesn't sew much but while she was off island she got with a group of ladies at church and made this and I think she made herself one too. She said she wanted to show me that she could sew too...and she can, I knew she could....she is awesome. Gave me this lovely soap too..smells oohhhh so nice. What would life be without friends????

Just today my friend that made this apron told me that she made it from an old muumu.....how impressive is that? She was saying that her cousin goes to second hand stores and buys dresses and makes aprons out of them....talk about going green. Then she gets a booth at several places and sales them.

On another note of interest Fabric mom is having a 400th giveaway....

She is giving away a mini quilt, pin cushion and some charm squares... Wonderful blog as well.....

ANOTHER GIVEAWAY over at Quilt n things She has alot of prizes and one of them is a quilt....and she too has an awesome blog....so please, check both out, you won't be sorry.

Either you all are going to love me or hate me for such a long post...but there are some wonderful giveaways out there and one of them is at

Green Fairy quilts.....hop on over there and take a look....and then hop on over to her store to some really wonderful bargains.

ANOTHER WONDERFUL GIVEAWAY OVER AT Sew Fantastic. she is giving away a book and some coveted material.....yepeeeee
