It is so much fun to check out this thread and see what everyone is working on it keeps the creative juices running just have to find the time to do some of the projects. Just got another order for a wedding pillow which I will have to start. Makes me put projects aside because of time lines. Guess that is what I will be starting on today.

Maybe it's just the fact that it is Spring and I am thinking of gardening - but I've got a bad case of the gnomes!

Hi Everyone,
Thank you! I was startled to find that I had won. The judges comments were very nice too. They reaffirmed my commitment to my craft and the gift I will leave to those who come after me.
I hope they will make this year's entries online. They put last year's up.
I will let you know what I find out.
Smiles!
Carla

Pegg~ The first one is actually a fleece blanket. I have to put an updated photo up because it has a big red mushroom gnome home in the middle now - complete with curling smoke coming out of its chimney!

Thank you for the compliments on the Superman Kindle case. My SIL loved it (it's red, though it looked PINK in the photo!). Congratulations to Carla on your award and publication! Elaine, love the gnome fleece--too cute! Dianne

Ok, so I love all the beautiful aprons I have seen, and the fabrics, and the memories of my childhood ones, and mom's and grandma's. But, honestly, when would this jeans and t-shirt gal need one. I'm proud of the dirt I get on me..I earned it. Easter dinner prep made a believer of me. At the last minute, I decided to add a cheesecake to the menu. The old mind drifted for a minute, and I was wearing cheesecake spatters in hair, glasses, face, new shirt. (sigh). I'm looking at patterns now. I ended up wearing a tea towel tucked into the neck of my shirt until just before the guests came. Its just lucky I remembered to pull it off.

I had to laugh over the apron event with Judith....i used to wear those 1/2 aprons that just covered the front lower half of you & found that when I wiped my hands it was always across my rump...now tell me that apron worked???!!!!Apron stayed nice & clean but if I turned around you saw floured hand prints...so I just got a 1950's pattern for the aprons that cover that area as well so now maybe after 52 yrs my apron will actually get dirty....Michele'
