Framing day today

This morning I finished making the apron and tea towel from remaining fabric. I made the apron from these instructions for a butcher style apron  http://etherwork.net/ejmtph/sew/apron.html  .
Okay, nothing amazing here. I want to make a more exciting apron, maybe patchwork. That is for another day.

I picked up our Guild's latest community quilt from Ann, and will start the machine quilting on it this afternoon.

I went over to Marilyn's and she helped me with the exhibition standard for framing of my few pieces for our May 22 show.
