Once I decided to start blogging again, I asked myself ... "What direction do I want this blog to go?" I've decided that my intent with this blog is basically the same as a lot of the other blogs I read ... decorating, swapping recipes, pets, and life in general. Nothing special ... just life!
I told my daughter-in-law that I would make her apron with some really fun fabric. And like my typical self, I always have great aspirations of how I will go about doing this. And in my head, this is how it goes: I go to the local fabric store and pick out the material, I cut the pattern out right when I get home and have it all sewed up and ready to wear within a week. But in reality, this is how it goes:
get the pattern
three weeks later, go pick out the material
five weeks after that, cut out the material (with the help of Fletcher)
and now three weeks after that, I still have to sew it all together. I should interject right now that I really don't sew. I quilt but I don't sew clothes. But I have wanted to start sewing something different than quilts and this is what I decided to start with. And notice what the pattern says ... SO EASY! Yeah, well we'll just see about that!
Before I let you go, I have to show you this cool thing my aunt made me for Christmas last year. It's a pin cushion with a bag attached to throw all your scraps into. Isn't it fun???
And here is a close up of the flower pin cushion part ...
Have a great week!
