Mother's Day Bliss

I got to spend some quiet time Sunday morning taking in this delicious stack of fat quarters.

Coffee at the sewing machine--ahh!

First completed project of the day--a clothespin apron made from a thrifted shirt.

Then...some potholders were made from a vintage tablecloth.

A 'Lazy Days' skirt for Lily was made from vintage fabric from my grandma and is well loved by Lily already. Pattern here:

A thrifting trip yielded a stack of lovely cotton sheets, pillowcases, and a tablecloth. Some will be used as bags/bag linings, as pants (below) and of course, sheets.

This striped sheet is becoming 3 pairs of matching pants for my 3 boys this week.
Crafting aside, I also got 3 different heirloom tomato plants which I'm so excited about! One of them is called "Chocolate Stripe.' Sounds yummy, doesn't it?!
And of course...lots of special time with my lovelies and lots of yummy treats. A wonderful weekend.
