Hi Honey, I'm Home!

Another busy weekend has passed. Overall it was a very good weekend. Jeff and I decided to put a bid on a house we saw (cross your fingers!), I hung out with Jean a bit on Saturday, I spent time with my sister, Jan, today as we went to the cemetary and then to lunch and I took a little time today to work on a new apron!

Thanks to Jean, it is displayed above on my new dress form. Jean emailed me a link last week to a Craigslist posting for a dress form and I immediately emailed the seller. Jeff and I picked it up yesterday and it's perfect! It's not the antique one that I was hoping for, but it's clean and will fit perfectly in my new studio when/if we move.

Anyway, how cute is this apron?!? It's called "Hi Honey, I'm Home!" and I found the pattern for free on Robert Kaufman's website - it was so easy to make! Jean's last podcast was all about aprons and I've been itching to make a new one. I still have to add the ties onto the apron, but that shouldn't take too long. I have some other ideas for a similar apron that I want to make for my future Etsy shop and hope to work on that next weekend.

Hope everyone had an awesome weekend!

  1. Toooo cute! Can't wait to check out that pattern. Look at you with all the fancy pointy-points action. Fancy! The MAN-equin looks great. Betty wants his number. :P
