Do you keep a photo record of your quilts? I want to. I even printed all the quilts I finished last year. I have a book to enter it all in. But, no, I don't do that. I do have a record based on my notebook of fabric usage but finishes are only recorded by the month. Some day I'll do that, but not today.
I made these aprons for Sophie and Natalie for their birthdays. Sophie is a tomboy and LOVED her ninja apron. Natalie is all about princesses and purple and pink. I used a length of "Frozen" ribbon on her apron. I used a commercial pattern for the apron and was not happy about the sizing. It said one size fit all for kids. It is huge on Natalie but eventually she'll grow into it. I liked the fact that it had d-rings that we can tighten or loosen the top section. Of course, the ties are way too long for either girl.
Here they are showing off their aprons and being silly. I'm happy they liked their presents. Jenny lets them help her cook so the aprons will be used.
They were both willing to have their pictures taken which is not always the case. I think they had cell phones in their faces way too much when they were babies. I took advantage of it and got some cute ones of each girl.
|Sophia and Raggs. Notice her new Chewbacca t shirt from Univ. of Southern California. She likes Star Wars in particular Chewbacca. We're always happy to promote USC.|
|Natalie with her "Frozen" baseball cap with a sparkly bill. She'd outgrown her last cap so Mom was happy to get this along with Natalie.|
I don't have other photos to show but did make some progress on various quilting projects. Here's last week's goal list. Not 100% but not bad either.

I'm linking up with Monday Making, Main Crush Monday and Design Wall Monday.
Note: Monday Making isn't up yet so I'll check back later and update this. Done! Hum, as I linked up to Monday Making, I realized I didn't actually put my signature in like I usually do. What was I thinking? Most likely I wasn't thinking at all!
