It's Getting Crowded In Here

In my brain that is. I've got to unload some stuff or I think it's going to explode. Thoughts (and lists) of projects to be finished - started - deadlines (going away presents to be made and given ... before they move), and so much more. So what am I doing ... blogging .. what else to make really good use of your childrens nap time.

I can check one thing off my list ... actually two if you count the fact that one Emmeline Apron fulfilled two obligations - The Sassy Apron Swap and MFD & SS Sew Along.

The Sew Along theme was one side naughty and one side nice.

Naughty
(Sorry for the bad picture. I wasn't lugging Bernadette back out for another photo shoot)

You know these girls are up to no good ;-)

Nice


Sweet like apple pie. Mmmm Mmmm.

For the apron swap you are to include a dish towel as well.

Lucy, who coordinates the Apron Swap, is doing something really nice. She is looking for apron angels. Check it out. I'm sending one her way.

And since I started this post discussing overcrowding ... while making this apron I kept getting the feeling like someone was standing behind me ... like Henry maybe had woken up early and I didn't hear him come in the room ... nope. Every time I turned around I discovered that it's just Berdie and me. I'm still getting used to having her around.

I've got that apron pattern - I thought I'd be making it this week, but my daughter had other ideas. I hope it turns out as well as yours.

That apron rocks! I'm not an apron-wearer, but I think I've been converted!

Kudos Adriene! Love it! (and love Bert too - I want a dress form quite badly, but don't know where to put it!)
