Aprons and Butterflys

A package arrived in the mail over the weekend from Sue at Country Pleasures.  I had won her recent giveaway which was this darling apron and a very cute card making kit.  I just love this apron pattern, so feminine yet practical, just as aprons should be!  Thank you, Sue!

During the sewing room redo, I found these butterflies that I had forgotten all about.  Quite awhile ago I had discovered them when I was out on of my treasure hunts.  If you click on the picture you will see that they still have pins in them.  The fabrics are wonderful old prints and deep colors, like the orange.  My favorite is the pieced butterfly at the bottom, this was a resourceful quilter for sure!  My plan is to combine them with some other old quilt blocks that I found and make a small quilt.  There is a sweet satisfaction in finishing the work a dear quilter started a long time ago.

With joy,


  1. Your model wears the lovely apron very well!

  2. Congratulations on your lovely apron! :o) And what a delight to find your butterflies and being able to finish what a dear lady started many years ago.
    Hoping you have a great week!
    Sincerely - Trish

  3. What a fun discovery! I have found a few things tucked away in my things that I had forgotten about. It is fun when that happens! I can not wait to see what you make with these pretties. I wonder how old they are? How fun! :)
