A gift for a friend

Hello everyone!

These past few days I have been little by little finishing up this project for a friends birthday. I was quite suprised and please how it turned out. I thought the fabric might be a little boring on its own and then I found the perfect cranberry bias tape for the pockets on this lovely apron. The fabric was a donation from my sisters stash of fabric and the bias tape and thread were both free from friends. So this project did not cost me much except my time. I am planning on sewing up another one of this pattern for myself! But I sadly need some fabric. I just don't have any fabric that will suit, all my 20 peices I own are destined for a certain project. So I want to go and see what I can find online or at Joann. The pattern is Simplicity 4692 view A. It also has a matching childs size option. How fun! maybe someday I can sew that up for someone too.

My sister and I and our parents are leaving for West VA tomorrow, so I may not be posting until August. Unless I have some time while I am on vacation to post! I might suprise you all! :) See you all soon and have a lovely thursday!
God bless,

Rebecca

Hey Rebecca!

I saw you were back from West VA on your FB, and thought I would stop by on your blog, since I haven't been in awhile. Life is getting so busy, and the Lord has really been working in me and my family. We have been and still are going through some trials, but the Lord has been faithful and is doing a work in us. :)

I wanted to say that I am very impressed by all your projects that you are doing/have done. This apron is wonderful! I love the design on the apron. And I have to say I love your civil war dress. The fabric is so pretty and victorian and the fact that you sewed it all yourself, despite having to ask your sister for help, is very impressive indeed! All your hard work puts me to shame. Hehe! True, I have some excuse for the delay, but I really need to get cracking on my dress. I intend to start up on it again this weekend. If I get something substantial done, then I will take a picture of it so far and share with you, if you like.

Anyway,good job on all of your projects! You are truely exhibiting qualities of a Proverbs 31 woman! :)
