happy valentine's day

Some sewing from a couple of years ago.

I saw a gingham version of this in Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion. The ruffler attachment for my sewing machine got used a lot for this.

The leftover fabric from that project was turned into a valance for the kitchen window. Clearly, I should have bought more fabric. It's not exactly a full gather. The stripes are done in a mini ric rac. The edging is medium ric rac set into the seams.

Another pattern from the same line of fabric. More ric rac. Another apron. Not a shocker around here.

Pocket detail - Look, a dark haired little girl. Wonder why I picked her...

Oh my...that curtain is wayy too lovely. I am such a ricrac junkie! The Apron is adorable too. Thanks for stopping by the Apronista!

I love that apron! And the curtains too. Great job!

I covet ALL these things! Does that mean I'm going to hell?
