Today's fun project: retro apron, home-made gingham bias tape. This particular pattern was hands down THE MOST FUN for me to make.

Aside from making the binding, there's really no ironing and folding of hems etc. This one has no pockets, but I don't mind as I don't use them in my aprons. There is alot of pinning, trimming back of the seam allowance after your sew, too. There will be more of these, for sure.

I also made some bread today. When it rose, I added cinnamon sugar to the top and then baked it after the 2nd rise. Yum. here's another view =)

such fun things you your blog too!!

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
