I feel like Kristyne feels over at Pretty by Hand. Defeated. So I decided to take a little break to ensure my sanity and quilting future (I did take a 4 1/2 year hiatus from quilting once before). I am going to make this wall hanging
My mom picked this kit up for me at Norsk Hostfest in Minot. It will be a welcome break from my NYB.
We had a small guild get-together yesterday and Colleen and Jane helped me make my Funked Out apron. Thanks, Girls. This was my first attempt at sewing something other than a quilt. It was hard for me sometimes to grasp the inside out concept...Sorry for arguing with you, Jane...You were right....every time......I'm sorry for firing you......
Here is my finished apron...all gathered and ruffled up! I need a model, but the boys are at school and Emma is still sleeping. It is really nice. The ties are great because they are the kind that wrap all around you and tie in the front. I followed the pattern for the most part, except I cheated on where the skirt meets the midriff. The pattern said to stitch the front by machine and then hand stitch the back. I pinned the skirt inside the midriff and sewed it altogether by machine. This is my second change
Its a pin. Sewn in between the apron and the lining. I hope that I don't get stuck by it at Thanksgiving!
