WIP Wednesday

I know I am late but I am linking up to the Needle and Thread Network for WIP wednesdays. I really do not have a lot to report , been busy with Christmas preparations and finishing up Christophers quilt , so is it finished you ask , well not quite , on the last side to sew that binding down . But I did make this apron for my Mom , the last time I was home for a visit she was wearing a very threadbare apron that was similar in style to this one and she said I sure wish I could find another apron like this one, I think I should give this to you so you can make a pattern and make me one. She did not give up the apron but this is actually a vintage pattern that belonged to my Aunt Mammie and I think is close enough to make her happy and if not then I will just have to nab that apron from her ;-) .I made this one another time a while back and kind of forgot just how much work there is in this , all that binding to sew on , I think she will like it as it has two large pockets is plenty big and is the softest most beautiful fabric , it may not look beautiful but it really is lovely quality. I have had this fabric for a long time and my plan was always to make an apron and I think this pattern is perfect for it as the fabric also has a vintage look , not sure if it is a reproduction print but I suspect it is. You may not be able to see it but the fabric has small red flowers , maybe if you click the picture to enlarge it you can see it better .
I think I will take a little blogging break so you may not see me post for a while as I have things to do for the big day and then I want to spend as much time with family as possible ,so let me take this time to thank each of you for your visits and comments over this past year , I really appreciate each and every one of you and wish to send you many blessings for a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
hugs Sheila
