:: sometimes I get a hankering to sew something... this urge had been growing for while now.
:: I'm so thankful for the friends the kids have across the street... "can you play?" and "YES" were the best words I heard all day yesterday.
:: back and forth, from our house to theirs
:: between the quiet moments, I started a sketch...
:: oh how I love my beautiful stash of fabric. I hoard it and love it and save it for just the right project. With this, I'll be able to see my most favorite one so much more often.
:: if you have ever taken a class with me, you'll know how bad I am about keeping track of my tools... long deep pockets aught to remedy that.

Fabric is a mix of those by Anna Maria Horner.
I used the waist band pattern from the book Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross,
but the skirting of the apron is my own design.

Oh I love fabric stashes. I have a little one that is slowly growing. The fabrics you have here are LOVELY. And I love that apron. Pockets make everything better, in my opinion.

Were you using the newspaper to make patterns?

Cats have no respect for sleeping humans... I miss having a cat. :P
