Twice a month, a young girl from my church comes over and watches my little one while I run around like a crazy woman and clean as fast as I possibly can. Yesterday she was coming over so I decided to sew as fast as I possibly could while she was here. All was going well, and then the lights flickered and the electricity went out. I got in a grand total of 15 minutes of sewing time!
Harumph. I decided to clean instead.
When you're used to something like electricity, you forget just how much you rely on it! I went to switch on lights, tried to use the garbage disposer, and had to call my husband so he could tell me where to find the key for the garage, and how to open the garage door!
So anyhow. Yesterday didn't really work for sewing. But today did!
I finished this apron, for my sister's wedding shower. Well, her wedding shower(s) have already passed, but I still wanted to give her a gift.
Ten years ago when I was preparing to set up house, I made this same apron for myself. Ten years was long enough to make me forget how painful a process it was to encase seams and ric rac in 1/4" double fold bias tape! But I'm glad I forgot because I wouldn't have made this pattern again, and I really love how it turned out.
