Rain, Fabric, China

It has been raining here, a lot, over 6 inches in the last few days. My chicken run is muddy. The yard is mushy. The garden is mucky! The weeds are growing, well, like weeds! The mosquitoes are back in droves. Last summer, we were in a drought!
Since, I won't be getting much yardwork done, thanks to the company of the hoards of mosquitoes, I should have no problem getting some sewing projects completed. This is especially so, since the MOUNTAIN of ironing has been conquered. All of these fabrics have been chosen for aprons. Except the red stripe, it is for cloth napkins.

I also received some wonderful treasures from a dear friend that passed away. It is nice to be entrusted with things I know were dear to her. The assorted pieces of china belonged to her grandmother. I think they are absolutely lovely.
They blend beautifully.

Simple and detailed.

All blues and gold.

Cups that are even pretty on the inside! I miss you "Mum".
If you are looking for me, I SHOULD be in my sewing room.
Y'all come back,


  1. Hi Lorilee,
    It's good to be back in blogland! Doesn't it seem like we never have "normal weather" anymore? It's either a drought or flooding, very cold temps or extreme heat. Maybe I'm just getting older and notice it more!
    Your dishes are beautiful and their sentimental value is priceless. How wonderful of your friend to have left them to you.
    What beautiful fabrics. I love the sunflower pattern. It makes me think "fall"! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hugs, Loretta

  2. one of my best sets of china was given to me by a dear friend who later passed away. your china is beautiful (as i'm sure your friendship must have been).

    sew on, sistah!

  3. Beautiful dishes. Extra special because of the history. Try not to float away. Mimi

  4. I could use some of that rain. It is hot here. Beautiful fabrics... lovely colors. And I do love the china. Be sure and not store it away. I'm sure she would want you to enjoy using it every day.

  5. It's raining again today in OK. Will it ever stop? But we shouldn't complain because God is giving us lovely green to look at! I love, love, love the china. What a wonderful gift. You were blessed. Take care.

  6. I am looking forward to seeing your aprons. I want to make a few myself. They make nice gifts.

  7. Good luck w/ your sewing and I LOVE that china.

  8. How lovely that you were able to get your friends china. I know each time you use it you will remember all the wonderful memories you two shared together.



Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
