Apron For Aspen




Apron for Morgen

100_0602This Christmas I made an aprons for the girls and we got together and baked cookies.

Apron For Sammi

I made this apron for my granddaughter Samantha’s 19th birthday.

Apron for Amelia

I thought for christmas this year I would make the girls Aprons. Amelia who is 5 years old now and in kindergarten loves to paint and I found the cutest paint splattered material. I think the apron along with a set of paints, brushes and art paper will make a fun gift.


Well, I finally finished hand quilting my daughters quilt. With a little help from my mom’s cat squeaky. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. She loves it, and can’t wait to curl up in it and read a good book.


I wanted to make a little apron that my step mom could use to gather vegetables from their garden. I knew what I had in mind and looked for a pattern. I found one exactly like I wanted by Simplicity. It said Sew Simple – One easy project. I am not a pattern reader, so the directions were not real clear to me. I am sure they are to those who sew clothes. I did use the pattern pieces I doubled my material for the main part of the apron and the pocket to make it sturdy. I cut the pieces out and put it together the way it made sense to me. I really do want to learn to read a pattern. But I think the Apron turned out very cute and I think it is up to daily use. She really loved it!


Getting Started

I am finally getting started on the toiletry bags. I swear every year I am going to work on them throughout the year , but inevitably I wait untill the last-minute and try to make a marathon of it. The ladies from church gather shampoo & conditioner, combs, tooth brushes, hand lotions, moisturizer, soap, tooth paste, wash cloths. They fill each bag with the toiletries and deliver them. These women are very dedicated in all they put their hands to and I feel blessed to be a part of it.
The Gathering Place is Denver’s only daytime drop-in center for women, their children, and transgender individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty.
