I feel like the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland–late, late, late for a very important date. Quilting seemed to interfere with my plans to have a totally unrushed and calm holiday season. Part of the problem is that I just couldn’t say no when people asked me to help them finish their quilts. However, as of yesterday, the packages are shipped, and I can settle down to things like baking cookies and decorating the tree.
Tomorrow–Monday–we’re going to have a great Blog Tour with lots of recipes. SewCalGal has organized this group of stitching cooks, and I think you’ll find some fun recipes. Here’s a list of all the participants. To celebrate, I did a little stitching to accessorize my daughter who always does a lot of baking.

The recipient of this apron has three boys and is expecting a fourth any day now. She keeps the boys in line and runs a tight ship. She definitely is a Super Mom. And since those boys are into Superheroes, I thought they should know that Mom fits into that category too.
I digitized this embroidery myself using Art and Stitch software. It was a great experience for me as I learned to manipulate the letters using the various handles that allow one to reshape and respace letters in a lot of different ways. This was the first time I felt that I really could create text the way I wanted it.
