It's very early in the morning, and I have been checking out the blogs, I was looking Shawnee's very, very cool blog, and discover that there is going to be a Easter basket swap, so of course I signed up, I just love the Easter Holiday! I have went to Coastal Bend Quilt and Needlework Guild Quilt Jubilee, it was wonderful to see all the beautiful quilts and needlework, I will be posting pictures of what I saw, there was also good shopping. I found some more fabric that I used at the last apron swap, so I will be making me a apron, in that pretty pink, red and turquoise fabric, my trim will be a little different, can't wait to see how this apron turns out. I have been doing some community service through the Sew Guild, which, I am a member, we made some turtle pillows, I will be posting some pictures shortly.

Its Here, Its Here, I finally got my apron, this afternoon, I was so happy to open the box, and, see such a cute apron, I was drawn to the shabby chic heart shape with eyelet trim, soooooooooooooooo pretty, I love the colors pink and green, My tuck ins were wonderful, I got lovely potholder, a heart shape cookie cutter, recipe to some delicious chocolate chip cookies and a cutie pie clipboard, very nice. My swap partner Amy did a fabulous job and I thank her very much, I had fun doing this swap, I will do it again soon!

Well! we are having a very cold winter for South Texas, temps in the 20ies, so what's a girl to do. I began to work on a fabric cuff, its sewn and now I am beading it, I am finding that working with beading needles is very tedious, they don't last very long, so I need to build up my stash, any way I am done and I will post of pic very soon.

I am almost done with my swap apron, I finished my shift at work, last night came home had a quick meal and then I went to work on the apron, I had purchase some beautiful fabric from this quilt shop called Creations in Kerrville Texas, they had a lot apron's made in many fabrics, which was so inspiring, what's funny is that I just purchase the fabric, and then I happen to get n email about the swap so I decide why not, go for it, as I was working through the night to get most of this apron done, I will be finished tonight, what I am liking on this project is that is it making me sew and finish a project, I am down last steps, and I have spotted a few tuck-ins the that will be fun to get!

What a great adventure I had today, went on a road trip to Kerrville Texas and went to a wonderful quilt shop called Creations! When we first walked in to the shop we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the fabrics and the Quilts. Amazing colors and textures of cotton and silk fabrics. I am proud member of the American Sewing Guild, so the chapter that I am in planned this trip, the Guild has ladies with all type of experience in sewing, quilting knitting and many from of crafting, some of the members along with me are working on a mystery quilt, so going to Creations was the best today.
