Prairie Apron and a Blue Mason Jar

My working hands are now creating aprons for your primitive home! I started out with this wonderful mustard, black and tan checkered homespun fabric. It hangs a little over 29" with 26" ties. I hand stitched a pocket in place which is made from osnaburg. On the pocket I appliqued a wool sunflower which I created from a beautiful piece of hand dyed wool. You can purchase them from my Etsy shop or just send me a message.
I also wanted to share a really nice piece for your kitchen that my mom created! She sent some of these along to my show last month and they were the first sale of the day! That is always a fun thing for my sister and I to see who has the first sale! Love it!

A Day at Brickhouse Crafts

Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the day with some good friends!!! Michele BriarPatchPrimitives arrived at my house around 8:30am and we headed up to Patti's Brickhouse Crafts for a craft day and drop off some new things for her shop! What a perfect day to spend with friends! Nice humid free day and a beautiful breeze! Just look at Patti's flowers and her shop porch! So relaxing and inviting!
Also to arrive was Tarrah from The Pottery Shed! I don't know how I did it but I failed to take a picture of Tarrah stirring her sugar cakes............which was a hard job for her because she was suffering with a stiff neck! Hope you are feeling better today Tarrah!!! Not sure what Patti thought of us dropping by to mess up her kitchen! Yikes! After making 2 batches of Sugar Cakes we took a break for lunch! Patti prepared the most beautiful salad........I forget what she called it because when I found out it was TUNA I was freaking out in my mind! You see.... I really don't care for tuna so I was trying to figure out how I was going to eat it! Not only that..... when I looked at her homemade dressing it had some lumps in it and I was so afraid it may be bleu cheese and I can't eat that at all! I prayed real hard as I took my first bite that I would like it!!! Guess what?!?!? It was rather tasty!!! I did not confess until we were half way through our meal that I was a little frightened when I found out it was TUNA! Thank goodness the dressing was not bleu cheese and it was delicious!!! I'm happy to say I cleaned my plate! Thank you so much Patti for the lovely lunch!
After lunch we whipped up two more batches of Sugar Cakes! It's funny how all 4 batches turned out a little bit different in texture! Here is Michele stirring her pot!
After lots of good laughs and chatting we each went home with some new Sugar Cakes and left Patti's house smelling like brown sugar and cinnamon!
