So Far. So Good.

Not too shabby for a fabric remnant that was less than half a yard and an old tattered table cloth.  
This is coming along nicely.

Just Watch Me

   Earlier this evening I was sitting at the dining room table with a pile of fabric set in front of me.  My daughter, on her way to the kitchen for a snack, stopped in front of the table and reached for a piece of fabric that lay amongst  the various remnants.  As she held it up for a better view, she commented that it was super cute and would make a really cute apron and that it was too bad that I didn't have enough to actually make an apron.  Indeed there was less than half a yard of the fun sugar skull fabric and most people would agree that it was not enough to make a full apron.  But I do not fall into the category of "most people" when it comes to creating an apron. never uses a pattern.  Patterns are for wimps!  HA!  I informed my daughter  that I could  and would make a full on hostess apron with that small piece of fabric.  Just watch me.

On this gorgeous gloomy overcast day, I enjoyed a relaxing afternoon of sewing . I'm hoping to finish up with these sexxxy and sassy aprons, along with their coordinating dish washing gloves, by the end of the week.

Valentine's Day 2012:

Love is in the air and we are less than a month away from Valentine's Day. Yay! I'm so looking forward to getting all dolled up and spending a long overdue evening out with my husband. I'm currently working on a few sexy and sassy Valentine's Day aprons, along with a project entitled "Love Cats" which will help benefit the furry residents of a local animal shelter.
Here are a few other goodies I've whipped up for
Valentine's Day 2012.
