A is for Apron, B is for Back-to-School

Dear readers, after months of recuperation I am slowly climbing back in the saddle, so to speak, in terms of blogging and the pursuit of craftiness.

If you read my post in July you know that I've been suffering from inflammation in my hands since the spring and it has interfered mightily with blog, shop, and crafting endeavors.  I want to thank you all again for your patience and understanding.  I still have to take it easy or suffer the consequences, so I'm not going to ramp up the number of blog posts just yet because I really want to do more crafting and shop maintenance as we move into the holidays.  Also, I am back-to-school:  my sewing class began last week, and this time I plan to work on my own projects and not allow myself to be distracted by the fun in-class projects my sewing instructor dreams up.

My latest creation:

Baker's Apron

I made this Baker's Apron, designed by Martha Stewart, as a birthday present for a friend using a really darling Alexander Henry fabric that I can't remember the name of (sorry!).  She loved it, I am proud to say.  By the way, the front panel is wide and the waist ties are a very generous length, making this a great apron pattern for women of all sizes.  I love the deep pockets in front and hope to make one of these for myself one day.

And yes, I am still working on the purse I showed you eons ago.  Perhaps I'll have that finished by next spring!

That's it for this week -- stay tuned for next week as I've got a fun giveaway to announce!


  1. Glad to here you're on the mend and back to doing the things you love, have missed your postings.

  2. Wonderful to hear Collette! The apron looks great, love it! xo
