Catching Up


Since Chris’s Parental leave, I’ve had some time to myself to work on the projects that have been put on the back-burner. I have a ways to go to catch up completely (due to my growing list of projects), but it feels SO good to check something off my list.

It was my sister’s birthday 3 months ago, and about 6 months ago I promised that I’d make her an apron as a gift. I bought the fabric a couple of days before Penelope arrived, and just haven’t made the time to start working on the project. I really like the pleated apron in Amy Butler’s book, In Stitches, but it wasn’t quite what I was looking for. Instead, I ended up taking my own apron, tracing the outline and making up my own pattern as I went. I’m really happy with how it all turned out. I really like how the Michael Miller fabric works with the blue cotton; it’s not super matchy-matchy.
