February is a fun month for family birthdays.  In addition to mine, we also celebrated sister Jill's, and niece (and my god-daughter) Michelle's birthdays last Sunday.  We had a family gathering...there are 6 of us here, now...ate some good food (grilled hamburgers and bratwursts...yum!) and opened lots of gifts.  

I made Michelle a lap quilt.  She loves blue.  So, I used the blues that I had received from Brenis, who had received them from a woman's aunt (or something like that).  Old fabric. Ohmygosh...once quilted and is the softest quilt ever. EVER!

I made two linen bread bags and a linen face cloth for Jill.  I did not get photos of them.

And, I made this for artisan apron.  I used a mixed natural colored linen with a Kona cotton solid in Snow for the lining.  I plan to wear it mostly when I am working in my sewing room...hoping that it will help keep stray threads from attaching to my clothes.  The pattern is by Janet Clare.  Yes, the same Janet Clare of the fabric collection mentioned in my previous post.  
I will be embellishing it with embroidery and other stuff as time goes by.

Lots of other sewing and other projects being worked on.  As always.

Have a great weekend!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11
