Say It With Flowers Blog Hop!


  If you are new here, welcome!! If you follow my blog,
it is no surprise to you that flowers are my summer passion. 
I love any and every type. 
My yard is full of a huge variety. 
I lean towards red and purple, because they attract the butterflies. 
Here are just a few from my favorite garden area.



Columbine


Poppies




I would love to show you some more in bloom, but with the late snow we had in May, the garden is a little behind and I have to show you my little blog project.   Well, since I love to garden, I thought I would make a little something to be used in the garden this summer.
A handy gardening apron.  It has nice deep pockets, so I can slip my pruners in.  (I am always setting them down somewhere and can't find them.)

 It is made from canvas and duck cloth, so it should be good and heavy duty for all my gardening needs.  And I appliqued the flower on the pockets for a little added detail.  Well, I just couldn't stop there. 


But first a little back detail, My dad made me the most awesome little early birthday present.  It is my very own sewing cabinet.  And, of course, I love it.  Nice big drawers and a spot to set my serger and if you want, you can fold it all up. 




  Isn't just gorgeous?  A lot better than me using the dining room table.  (We were all getting very tired of that.)  My hubby had an office chair out in his garage waiting for a new home, but


It was a bit boring.  SO, how about some flowers on it.



Oh, so much better.  A little slip cover!!



  And don't forget to stop by these Say It With Flower bloggers and check out their great projects......

  9. I'm fond of little half-aprons like that, especially when they are as pretty as yours. They are attractive, functional and don't make you feel like you're wearing another layer of clothing...very important here in the southwest! You did a lovely job of covering your chair, too. I'm tempted to make my sewing chair pretty, as well.

    p.s. Be careful...your Dad may find himself taking orders for more sewing tables!

  43. OMG I am so jealous of your new sewing center. Does you dad want to adopt another daughter (who would love one too)? LOL!! Seriously though, I absolutely love what you have done with your chair. I can so see one in my room with moose all over it! Have you considered writing a pattern? I'd be first on your list to purchase one!

  48. Cute apron! Gorgeous chair, my you are creative! You have a super dad, what a awesom desk he made for you!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Talented Daddy! Wonderful cabinet. I love the idea of a garden apron. I too always lay down small tools or sees packets and misplace them. An apron would be a perfect solution.
    The chair is awesome! Is that a pattern? I need to make one for my ugly office chair.

    Congrats on being one of the chosen.

  51. What a wonderful dad! I love your sewing table. Your apron is fabulous. And is there any chance of a little tutorial on your chair cover. My chair is very uncomfortable when I'm wearing shorts. Right now it just has an old pillowcase on it.

  73. Hey, those are the main three flowers in the beds around this house. :) I'd never seen Columbine before, so they've surprised me this week as they started opening. All the poppies look ready to burst open any time - I was sadly afraid this fire might wipe them out before they get the chance. Hopefully they'll start opening this afternoon. Love your chair cover - awesome back!
