Busy, busy, busy. That is what my life has been this last month.  My last post showed some Christmas gifts my hubby and I were making.  I thought I would share the aprons I have made recently.  One of my co-workers saw the aprons I made for Christmas for the Grandbabies and asked me to make one for her niece.  I wanted to try a new pattern.  I love how it turned out, very girly!!  Of course I had to take it to Peighton to model it for me.  She is such a cute little model!!


Don't you love this gorgeous fabric?  It is a drapery fabric, so very heavy.  Here is another apron I made for a co-worker for Christmas, had to wrap it around Peighton!!  The base is a vintage valance that I added a ruffle and some gorgeous lace and a wasteband to make a shabby chic apron. 

 Now to show you some of the aprons I made for the kiddo's for Christmas.  I made this apron in 3 different sizes.  This is Peighton and Nova.

Here is Jemma.

And Kiah.

Now you know Gunner needed an apron as well.  We have to teach those boys that they need to learn to cook as well.  I thought I was pretty brilliant when these pockets lined up perfectly on Gunner's apron!! 

You can't really see it, but I made Ralphie one as well.

Now, to show you some of the pictures of the kiddo's with their doll beds we made from my last post:

I wish Nova's face wasn't blurry, but you can see how excited she was.  Of course the first thing she did was crawl in herself!!

The girls loved their doll beds as well.

Kiah thought she should get in the bed as well!!  It is a good thing these plans from Ana White are strong!!

Papa Gene built Gunner a Gun Rack for Christmas.  I cut the title out in brown vinyl on my Cricut Expression.

And now to leave you with a picture of the newest Grandbaby.  This is Bryar. He was born on Dec 16th. I was given the most amazing gift of being one of her coaches during delivery. So amazing.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Bren, these beds and aprons are fantastic. I love them. What great, heartfelt gifts, and it's obvious the kids love them. Congrats on a new grandson, too. Wow, girl, your family has grown by leaps and bounds since we "met". LUG!

And you know I don't cook, but your aprons make me want one. They really are fabulous.

Nice to hear from you Bren, I can see how busy your family has been keeping you :-) Congratulations on the safe arrival of Bryar, what a privilege to be involved (my sister coached her daughter AND her daughters-in-law and rates it as among the most moving experiences of her life) Hope to see you around the traps, Donna xx (had an issue with "another" Dee in blogland, suffice to say I am now NOT known as Dee in the land of blog!!)
