Apron Inspiration

If you haven't already, run to the newstand and pick this up. I saw it last night at the grocery store and bought it. I came home, sat down and read it cover to cover. There are apron tales and ideas and 5 free apron patterns. That's right 5 FREE patterns.

It's part magazine and part catalog. The stories are wonderful and inspiring for life simplification and caring for your home and family.

Add to the apron patterns a topsy turvey doll pattern of little red riding hood. That was a very pleasant surprise for me to find. I cannot wait to get started on that. And I have too much going to start anything else. So I will add it to the list of inspiration ideas.

I am over halfway finished with the quilting of the red and white quilt. then just the binding and finishing to go. There is a pile of pink and brown goodness in the center of the dining room table to be wrapped and mailed. There's a box of goodies on a stool in the kitchen being tagged and confirmed for Leslie who won my 100 post contest. The angel is awaiting the remainder of her stocking. ATC are getting ready to travel to new homes. AND the appraiser is coming early next week to look at the house. I am not sure how to get it all done. The studio takes a back burner status this week.

The weather here in the south is absolutely wonderful. Cool mornings, low humidity, warm afternoons. Perfect. This is my favorite time of the year.

I am having a wonderful day and I hope you all are too.

I too have never heard of this magazine. I'll be willing to bet I won't be able to find one in this town. Think I'll see if I can find it on the Internet. I love magazines.

I'm pretty new to the blogging world and have been enjoying your blog. I just did a post on aprons that I recieved as an e-mail.

Oh! I didn't know Mary Jane had a magazine. I have her fantastic book--I can't believe I found it in a used bookstore this summer. I love it. Can't wait to find the magazine.
