Crazy about Crazy Quilting

I discovered crazy quilting from my love of antique bed spreads and crafts. So a couple of years ago I gave it a try. Very time consuming but very enjoyable. All stockings custom made.

nooGirl Tops

This top is made with organic lining and thread. For a lighter feel I recommend just the patchwork with no lining.

All tops custom made.

 

nooGirl Skirts

I started making patchwork skirts a couple of years ago. Store bought skirts are such a drag and oh so boring. Handmade is always more fun! If you are interested in a skirt let me know and we’ll see what we can do : ) All skirts custom made.

Flannel Burp Cloth/Lightweight Cover w/ Ric Rac

After feeling the burp cloths sold in stores I couldn’t bare to put that next to my baby’s skin. So I took each of my kids in to pick out their own fabric and let them each help me make their own burp cloth/cover to hold their new baby brother in. To this day, they (and their baby brother) love their special baby blankets!

nooGirl Aprons

I began sewing aprons 2 years ago. I began in November, making them for my family…. I didn’t quit until long into the new year! There is something so wholesome and inspiring about sewing aprons. Such a simple piece of cloth, yet so much love, time and attention taken by the wearer through years of cooking and baking for family and friends. I once read a poem about a Grandma’s apron strings. I’m reprinting below for your enjoyment.
Oh yes, I almost forgot. If you’d like to order an apron just let me know! All aprons custom made!

The Old Fashioned
Grandma’s Apron
by Tina Trivett
The strings were tied, It was freshly washed, and maybe even pressed.
For Grandma, it was everyday to choose one when she dressed.
The simple apron that it was, you would never think about;
the things she used it for, that made it look worn out.

She may have used it to hold, some wildflowers that she’d found.
Or to hide a crying child’s face, when a stranger came around.
Imagine all the little tears that were wiped with just that cloth.
Or it became a potholder to serve some chicken broth.

She probably carried kindling to stoke the kitchen fire.
To hold a load of laundry, or to wipe the clothesline wire.
When canning all her vegetables, it was used to wipe her brow.
You never know, she might have used it to shoo flies from the cow.

She might have carried eggs in from the chicken coop outside.
Whatever chore she used it for, she did them all with pride.
When Grandma went to heaven, God said she now could rest.
I’m sure the apron that she chose, was her Sunday best.

 

Aprons are for today just as much as yesterday. Let’s not miss out on what are grandmother’s once knew… the joy and usefulness of Aprons. They’re the ” new black”!   : )
