It seems like I haven't seen my sewing room for weeks.
The holiday weekend I was out of town and
this weekend we had our grand daughter Evie for a sleep over!
Did you know it was Grandparents Day?
Well, that works for me just fine!
I was able to get escape into my sewing room yesterday afternoon...
And I had a great time in there!
I made up a couple dish towels that will be samples
for something I am teaching next month.
I also made this mug rug that I had seen on Pinterest.
The tree is 3-D so you can slip in a couple of cookies or a
recipe card maybe.
This is another mini project that I will be teaching next month.
In fact, all of my attention is focused on the retreat I host in
October at Bass Lake (California).
My theme and decorations this year is
and that's why
I had to include
those sweet little bottle aprons...
Lori Holt has a great tutorial for making these and I decided that
everyone will get one, along with the other goodies...
A friend gave me vintage binding to finish off the
little aprons... did I mention there is 50 of them to
(photo borrowed from Lori Holt you can click here for the tutorial)
One of the other items I am putting together is also a Lori Holt
inspired gift idea.
Apron kit in a mason jar.

Bee in my Bonnet blogged about these apron kits exactly 3 years ago and
how they were perfect gifts for a retreat... I have kept that in mind ever since.
Time is drawing near... so although I have a good start on
my projects, there is still a lot of decorations to make etc.
It's like putting on a wedding every year!
It's always worth the work you put into it!
My other little weekend project...
I made a couple blocks for my Bees Knees sewing bee group.
Fun novelty fabric and a simple nine patch and friendship star...
