How about this classy apron made by Pam Adkins? I love the turned down pocket and the daisy trim. I think this apron has a “retro-now” feel, don’t you? Well, time to think and brainstorm my new fabric collections. Have a great day!
When developing my All Things Good collection, I was sparked by the cleanliness of Blue & White. I started thinking about white roosters and Delft ceramics and all things white in the kitchen. Thinking of sugar, cream, eggs, daisies and the fresh, content feelings of morning. My mind began to wander and wonder about what meals, time spent with family and friends around the kitchen symbolized? Hence the collection name, All Things Good came to be. Other phrases sprung up as I painted the icons for this group: Good Blessings, Good Health, Good talks, Good Times, Good Cook…. Here is one of the first patterns I developed in creating this collection.
While my little ones run around playing in the sprinkler, I take a moment to plant and photograph some of the flowers in our garden. When thinking of my newest collections, I find nature to be one place I go to for inspiration…the beauty of the petals and the contrast of colors against the background make the flowers pop. I look forward to the evolution of ever-changing gardens.

It is fun exploring the amazing possibilities with my All Things Good fabric. In this particular placemat, I thought it would be fun to add a brown accent loop stitch to the frame. The motif’s quote says, “A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent.” Just a little reminder to cherish those moments.
