I made this apron from the Great British Sewing Bee Series one book. It is in preparation for my next run of sewing classes. The fabric is from a generous stash of happy post donated to me by Christina from A Colourful Life.
I can afford a moment of larking about in the garden with the pegs this morning as it is my first Monday at home without the children or work since the beginning of the long holidays. My to-do list is bulging and my apron is ready for some action.
My first job has been to clean out the greenhouse which has sort of turned into a see-through shed of dumped rubbish covered in spiders webs which were all in my hair.
Then I am sashaying to the kitchen to make carrot soup and carrot cake because I accidentally clicked twice online for the one bag of carrots I wanted! ho hum...
Then I am going to do a bit of sewing with the added bonus of no interruptions. There are washing loads to put on too but I can sew in between.
My final apron story is a little sad. In July 2104 I made this apron for my friend. She is a home help carer and asked me to make an apron for one of her clients as she couldn't find a waist tie apron in the shops. I did so and blogged about it way back then. Sadly the wearer passed away last week but my friend told me that she had been buried in it as she loved the apron so much. Isn't that an incredible thing? I don't know the lady but I feel happy that something that seemed insignificant to me has given someone else so much joy.
Keep making stuff everyone because it is really important you know.
