A curtain, some trim and a headache...


Well, finally I've finished my first apron.(whew!) It took me a very, very long time. I'm not really a seamstress and hate patterns.. so this is my first attempt at an apron using no pattern, some trim and a lot of concentration and thinking. Not bad for a first attempt and I like the trim on the pocket very much. I used an old curtain, $1.00 trim and some seam binding. Thank heaven for Lady Caroline as my model, (had to put a bra on her to keep her modesty in tact). So here it is for all the world to see...

oh, and for those of you following my dilemma with my job, I've decided to leave sometime in May.. either May 1st or the 15th. It's time to move on and find something that suits me more and time for my family.

I'm happy that you came to a decision about your job. It's good to know that you have found peace in what you want to do. I'm excited for you in what your future holds in this regard.

Two thumbs up in regards to your apron! I'd be LOST if I had to make my own pattern/sew from scratch. It looks cute.

NO PATTERN!! My kind of woman!! And look how great it turned out. Oh good heavens, I laughed when I saw her snazzy top. Funny:)

Your apron looks divine. I still don't know how you could do it without a pattern. Amen on your decision regarding your job. You have given enough of your time and sweat there. Spring...time for renewal, new beginnings. LL is still home...I think he will be home for my surgery. Thanks again for a great day on Saturday! XO Kath

Congrats on making a decision about your job, I know that is a load off your mind. I'm curious about that pretty pitcher behind Lady Caroline on that shelf...is it old?

I have to say.. it was my sister Kathleens.. we seem to have a lot of things that use to each others.. it's been around for a while and I think she bought it at a flea market back in the early 1980's.. I'll have to ask..

I love your apron, Tracey! I commend you for even making one without a pattern too. It's adorable. Oh and good luck on your job. I totally understand how you feel. :)
