Aprons 7 and 8 and a MIL On The Mend

First I want to thank everyone for all their prayers and and kind words.  Believe it our not my MIL has finally turned a corner.  For the last 2 days she as started to get up each day and eat something and sit in the living room with us.  She even took a ride with us today.  She did mention her back hurting a couple of times.  One day she says it's the rib and the next it's the back, she's having a trouble explaining exactly where she hurts.  But it was very scary for a while.  I really wasn't sure that she was going to be okay but just like being sick with any thing else she woke one day and seemed much better.  What a relief for us and her.  It's so hard to see someone you care about in pain.  I'm so grateful to have all of you to ease my fears and just comfort me in general.

I have just about caught ya'll up on the aprons that are already made.  I have 2 to show you today and I'll post another one tomorrow.  I have some other things to show you for the rest of the week.  Hopefully I'll have more time to visit and can concentrate enough to put a whole sentence together.

Is anyone tired of seeing my aprons displayed on my grape arbor enough to donate a dress form?  LOL.

This one is made from a handmade crib quilt.  See the little heart stitches throughout.  The quilt is such a soft faded greenish blue and yellow.

I've used some vintage doilies for trim and a double pocket lined with some muslin.

I even used a doily for a handmade flower accent.

Another Scottie Apron in half  apron style.

Yellow Ric-Rac to brighten it up just a bit.

And a heart pocket to tuck something into.

That's all for today Sweetpea's.  Comeback and visit tomorrow.  And please if you can spare the time leave a comment, I love reading each and everyone so much.  Thank you to those who have left so many kind words already.

Hugs....Tracy :)
