Girlfriends :)

the "toe point" seal of approval :)

the undercover "Ho"
Oh...if you could smell this!

Yeah baby...that IS Mr. T :)

can you see those little race car buttons????

Well I'm not gonna lie, I've not been feeling well lately. This crazy weather has really taken it's toll on me with my Fibro. I was particularly "whiny" last week and I hate that! My dear friends put together two separate packages to surprise me and they both arrived today! The apron swap we were all involved in is ending right about now and the theme was Spring Fling. You were to make an apron and then include 3 tuck-ins that represent the recipient's initials. Well they put together an
amazing extra swap package for me! Regena made me this fabulous apron with 2 embroidered "Ho"s (which goes back to our Christmas swap :) Denise made these "oh-so-wonderul-smelling" Lilly of the Field Sachets (L for my middle initial) and the darling matching Kleenex case. Amy sent me Mr. T and an embroidery pattern T and flower quilt templates for my last name initial. She also sent an embroidery pattern K and a fantastic quilt book by Kaffe Fassett for my first initial. She included wonderful rick rack and trim and fabric to make cute girly things for my grand daughters and darling little race car buttons! After opening these 2 packages of love and friendship I cried like a big mush bucket (as Regena calls me). I seriously can't believe that they put so much time and care into this for me. I love love love it and I am so blessed by their friendship!


  1. TOE POINT! and you found the other undercover HO! yeah :) awesome Apron Regena and Denise - where did you find that fabric? love it

  2. That's how friends roll Karen! And to think that we've never even met in person - yet!
    the fabric was in a package of fat quarters that I bought in January when I started my sewing adventure again and I had no idea what I was going to do with them. There were 5 coordinating prints and I love them!
    and I adore my new friends too!

  3. Blessed is good.....just no hugging!!
    Good Job Ames!!!

  4. Ahem - I should clarify the scrap from the FAS apron I guess - I just thought that seer sucker was awesome and would make some great little grandbaby girls some bloomers for the summer!

  5. I totally agree :) Maybe even a cute sun hat?

  6. Aren't friends the greatest?! lovely goodies :)

  7. Your girlfriends are very sweet but you totally deserve it!!!!! i hope you're feeling better! Happy Mother's Day!
