Hello! Thank you for stopping in for a visit today. I'm excited because I actually have a cute quilt to show for a change. With the winter days being so short here in the northern hemisphere, it often seems like I'm not getting much accomplished in the way of creative stitching. Before I know it the day is over.
So, I've been pulling out my unfinished projects and -- instant gratification! I just put the finishing touches on this vintage baby quilt for my grand-daughter Olivia, which was started last summer. I'd tucked it away as the days got busy toward year's end. Actually, it's not vintage, but the designs are. They're from this old pattern with the sweetest little animals -- all wearing aprons. 17 motifs in all, but I only used 7 here. Very easy and fun. Above, Miss Bear attempting to raid the honey hive.

The quilt. It's dark on this cold January day and impossible to get a good picture. I should've taken some yesterday when the sun made a lovely showing, but as I was out of the house all day I missed the opportunity. Anyway, before I putter off to dig up more UFO's that need finishing, I'd love to give away a free Animals in Aprons PDF, which I can send anywhere via email. You will have to print out the pattern and trace the design in reverse to use it. Visit my website for tracing tips. If you want to be entered into the drawing, just leave a comment and include the word 'apron'. I'll announce a winner sometime in the next few days.
