the beauty of numbers...

"Numbers are intellectual witnesses that belong only to mankind" Honore de Balzac...France I needed to first grab a pencil,then the ruler, the numbers were there,in this book...waiting. I measured... I marked... I cut... I sewed... I folded,pleated and pressed.... pocketed,tagged and top stitched... the numbers kept me intrigued as I went along.. the numbers well arranged and easy to apply... and soon, I had not only one... but two aprons... ready for the giving... pink and green... two colors of Spring bold prints on wonderful cotton... two fabrics for each.... two gifts... for two women... and one beautiful bleeding heart for you all. Happy Mother's Day to you all this weekend... Hoping your numbers add up to a perfectly wonderful day!!

Is this the apron in the Amy Butler book. If so, I'm in the midst of making one also. What great gifts! And great choice on the fabric!
