Domestic Goodness

I've been home for about a week now, which means plenty of time for sewing, a bit of knitting, and even some needlework. I've also been making LOTS of peach jam - my parents have two peach trees, so for the last few weeks we have been drowning in peaches. It seems a waste to let them rot, so we've been preserving lots and lots.
Preserving peaches is messy work. The ripe peaches have to be skinned, and the juice gets all over the place. Ladling the jam into jars is a messy, sticky process as well. During the process, I discovered that my mother did not have a full apron - only half aprons, which just don't do the job. So, I made her one!

Rufio likes it.

This was really simple to make - I used an old pillowcase and a few kitchen-y scraps I had in my scrap basket. I used an apron I was given as a wedding gift as a template. 


What do you think of the finished product? 


  1. Hi! Your new apron is really beautiful! Great idea to use defferent fabrics!
    That 'cubes' in your latest post is exiting! I would love to try that!
    Thank you for your visit and comment!


I love to hear from you!
