Yes, I have not posted for almost a year. I just needed to take a step back and re-adjust my life. I retired from the Quilt Walk after 14 years. It was a big step for me as it was my "baby". But guess what..it was like the weight of the world was off my shoulders.

This last year I have just relaxed more, had lots of company, traveled, worked my day job and enjoyed my life! No deadlines! No pressure! Pretty awesome!

I came home from work early today to drink all the stuff you have to drink to prepare for a colonscopy tomorrow. While I was waiting for it all to take effect I was reading blogs and came across Rae Ann's She had made this darling apron out of a man's shirt. So I went to Leon's closet and found an old shirt and went to work. There were stains on it though and so I thought "why not spray it with bleach and see what happens". Rae Ann has a great tutorial and pictures so it made up really fast and easy.I sprayed it and it turned out great. I had some wonderful crocheted trim with rickrack and buttons to add to the pockets and then it was done!
Then I took the back of the shirt, added a facing at the neck , a pocket and ties and then there were two aprons. A fun way to spend the afternoon while drinking all that stuff for my test tommorrow! Thanks Rae Ann for the great ideas!

Wish me luck on my test tomorrow!


  1. You have been missed!
    Rae Ann will be so happy to see you have made up her apron pattern so quickly. Did Leon really have a bright pink shirt in his closet? The apron turned out great!
    In my opinion the day before a colonoscopy is much worse than the actual procedure!Best of luck.

  2. So nice to hear from you! Welcome back. And good luck with the colonscopy! :)
