Carla from Creatin’ In The Sticks came up with The Challenge:
“Create something to do with food. It could be anything from a quilt with a food fabric, to a tea cozy. A mug rug for coffee to an apron. A Corn and Beans Quilt Block to a drying rack for the kitchen. Maybe you are trying to raise money for a charity that supplies food. You decide! The theme is really your own interpretation, surprise us!”
I had decided that it was time to make a fun new apron for my grandson’s wife. She is always creating something fun in her kitchen and Clarke used to always help her Mommy. I pulled some bright, happy fabrics from my stash and just made a simple apron with two layers of pockets in the front. April is like me in one way. She always has her phone nearby in case a photo op occurs. With 8 pockets to choose from she should be able to keep it handy and safe while she is cooking! It was fun to play with some decorative stitching to finish the apron off.
My decision for a second project was finalized when I was in Grand Prairie. our little Grace has now decided that she needs to be in the kitchen helping her Mom. She sits on the counter and tries to stir things and loves to dump ingredients in the bowl. It’s fun to watch her “helping”. I become obvious that a little bibbed apron might be handy, so I found some more prints (sweet peppers for our girl) and more yellow and after a bit of thinking created a reversible apron with crossover shoulder straps so it wouldn’t need to be tied.
This is today’s list of participants. I’m really looking forward to seeing what they have created for our enjoyment.

I do have to thank Carla from Creatin’ in the Sticks for such a perfect theme to get me back in my sewing corner and having some fabric fun.
Thank you for sharing some of your time with me today. Now I’m off to see what everyone else has made and leave some nice comments on their posts. 😉 Carol
