Heart Strings to Apron Strings

Shout out to my sister Natalie who after one of my pregnancy bad days and a blubbering phone call bought a plane ticket and planned a trip to see me. Pregnancy bad day (at least that one) over, crying ceasing (at least temporarily) and trip here and gone. To Natalie, you rock. Thanks for brightening my days, hanging out with us awhile and pulling on my heart strings.


I Heart You
With Natters here we decided to take on the making of an apron. We were supposed to do it together, but in my excitement at figuring out how to make my first apron, I pretty much took over and let her iron...what a nerd I am. We picked out some cute fabric, asked a few questions to some of my sewing friends, and then relied on my "winging" it skills to finish this very cute if slightly imperfect...don't look too closely apron. I can only imagine what I will be able to do with some skill and training under my belt.

Guess what I'm wearing right now? Yup... you nailed it. The apron. I came home and that was the first thing I did. Not take a shower, or unpack... I still haven't done either of those. I sure love you and I was so happy to come and see you! Thanks for being such a great big sister.
