2014 in review

Hello dear friends I hope that your Christmas was joyous and full of family and friends. I am taking down Christmas and getting ready for the new year when my yearly report from WordPress came in and I want to share it with you. These are the results of my first 9 months of blogging results. Kind of like having a baby. LOL Thank you dear readers!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

I love it when you leave comments, let me know what you would like to see more of.

Have a very warm New Year! Jo

Thanx to all my dear friends that have helped me along the way!

Making Vintage Aprons

So sorry that I have not posted for a few days, the flu bug has attacked out home. I took it easy during the weekend so I am trying to muddle through today. Onward and upward right?

Welcome! I am so happy that you have come to visit. I have been very busy sewing and getting ready for Fall. Some times I think that Fall is busier than Spring. I remember being a young mother of 4, getting the kids ready to start school, I sewed a lot of their clothes until they became to picky, gardening, canning, getting the house ready for Fall, PTA, church callings, and on and on. Does this sound familiar? I may have an empty nest, but life has not slowed down. I seem to always be adding something to my list of names, see my post on To many projects.

One of my many projects is making homemade vintage products for boutiques. The biggest seller is my Vintage Aprons. They are easy to sew and I can produce them in large quantities without much problem.

I have a beautiful daughter-in-law to help model the aprons. Thanx Jordie! Mother of the 4 children I tend.

I use vintage tea towels and table cloths with embroidery on them. They are sewn to the front of the apron, between the band and the apron parts. It’s like having a dish towel attached to your apron. Many times I can find vintage calico fabric for the aprons. Look at the lovely stitching on this lovely towel.

This towel has beautiful crocheting around it, I almost don’t want to use these lovely aprons because of the vintage stitching. Love, love it. The time that has gone into the stitching I so appreciate, I sure wish I knew who made these pieces.

Life is LOVERLY!
