featuring Gem Stones Bright Rosettes by Gerri Robinson (Planted Seeds Designs)

Kitchen Stitchin' Blog Hop

When Carla @ Creatin' in the Sticks put out the word for her next Blog Hop, I knew I wanted to play!  

I had been eyeing the upcoming Sew Kewpie® fabric from Riley Blake Designs, with adorable little Kewpie dolls playing amongst ladles, rolling pins, cupcakes and jars of jam, and already had plans to feature a pair of Mommy & Me Aprons.  You can see the aprons and the accompanying soft book in my previous post.  So cute!
