What an absolutely wonderful weekend. I hope that you enjoyed yours as much. On Saturday I took a 2 hour nap! An amazing feat because the rest of my family was awake. I went to my bedroom to read and before I knew it...I was asleep and NO ONE came in to wake me up. It was fabulous. Most of the day Sunday I was downstairs doing laundry. I didn't really mind it...I watched this 4 hour part one of Jane Eyre. Embarassing enough, I wasn't familar with the story. I really do need to upgrade my Netflix membership so that I can get 2 movies at once. Waiting a few days for the second half of that show is going to be excrutiating! (remember I said that I was going to cancel my membership...so much for that!)
We have finally arrived at the last week of school. I am so glad. Three days to go. Three busy days. I sewed up a few gardening aprons for the girl's teachers. We (the parents) are putting together little gardening baskets for them complete with seeds, shovels, gloves, hand lotion, and these aprons.
I didn't have a pattern, but a just a general idea of how I wanted them to look. How hard can sewing a rectangle be? I made a sample apron just to make sure that I worked out all the kinks first. Sewing for other people is always fussy like that. Then, I cranked out the others assembly line style. Cut them all out, and made all the little bias trims, then put them each together. They are made from canvas and cotton prints. I lined the pockets with muslin just so they would be a similar thickness as the canvas.
I have more sewing to show for...come back tomorrow! I give up on the spacing issue #$%@&**!!
