Is May almost over already? That means summer is right around the corner . . . So, these bright summer colors might inspire your creativity this week:
Fabric and not paper, you may ask? It's my first fabric purchase in over 10 years! Let me explain . . . I'm not a sewing girl! Sad, but true. However, my sister recently sent me a vintage apron that my grandmother had made for my mother. Somehow it has remained in one piece and the design is quite unique. Well, I can't bring myself to wear the original, but I thought it would be great to find some fabric and with the help of my sister, to make 2 other aprons for me to actually use! So, when I was with my girlfriends in Ohio (they are both quilters) we ended up in some fabric stores and I made the above choices for the aprons. The first photo shows the section in the fabric store that attracted my attention and the next two photos were the actual combinations I chose. I will post the photos when the aprons are complete. In the meantime, use those gorgeous colors for inspiration!
Onto another blog I go to for inspiration: Left Handed Crafter by Sue Laufer. Sue is a Close to my Heart Consultant and along with calling her a close friend, I have spent many days with her crafting and taking her inspiring classes. Enjoy the inspiration on her blog! You can find Sue here:
