Quite a Sewing Time.

Over the last 3 days I have spent more time with my sewing machine than I have for ages. On Friday we had regular Patchwork & Quilting where I sat and hand stitched the binding down on my little quilt. On Saturday and Sunday we had our rooms for UFO days. ( unfinished objects completion. )
I made this little reversible apron for a gift I will be giving shortly to the big sister of a new baby.

 Each side has a pocket with ric rac inserted across the top.
 I also started the next little baby quilt  I am making.

 Here are some of my busy companions. It is also a very social time with many ladies bringing home baking to share and long chatty tea breaks being had.
 We had an audience as well. J makes these and likes to take them on outings with her.

 Today it is cleaning up leaves time for me. So many still to do after last week's storm.

Any little girl would love that apron, I'm sure - the fabrics are wonderful! Looks like you all have a fun day sewing.

Yes, my little GD would love to get a beautiful apron like this. Love your audience too!
Hope you have a nice week. No more storm.
