I've been busy sewing gifts for family members. My husband's mom's birthday was in August. In fact, it was the day we moved. She was so sweet to come and help on her birthday. I had bought stuff to make her an apron before we moved, but didn't get to it until today. Here's a picture.

I couldn't find my pattern instructions, but I did find the pieces. Add that to the growing list of the lost. I also can't find my turners for the apron strings which is a HUGE pain to turn those narrow things without it. I cant' find at least two other patterns either. I hope they turn up soon as everything I know is missing I haven't even used yet.
My sister-in-law is having a baby girl in October. Her shower is tomorrow night and I decided to make these for her. The first is a reversable smock. The plain side is the front and the criss cross is the back. The second is matching booties for one of the sides. FrontBackFront

BackBooties. Now I am really wanting a girl!

The smocks and especially the booties are sooooo cute! Very nice job! I hope you find your things. I hope they didn't fly to Neverland with all the missing socks out of the dryer.
