Starting and Finishing

My friend is so close to finishing the Sew Liberated Apron that I've been helping her with. She'll finish up the bias binding at home. Look how nice it turned out!! The other side is a nice rich brown color. (I didn't get her permission to put her face on my blog, I hope it's alright that I put her body on it.)

Seeing her apron makes me want to make another one exactly like hers!

The gift group I'm starting will start with b-day crowns. I've never made one, so I played around with felt while my friend was working on her apron. Super J's birthday is next month so I started with his crown. Not sure I really like it. It's a good thing I started a couple of weeks before teaching the class!

Super J started and finished his pin project. I'm always finding myself saying things I never thought I'd say. Like today when I told him to put on his shoes and he could come back and play with the pins. You should know this was a lot less dangerous than what he wanted to do which was sticking the pins into the crown as I was sewing it in a super strong machine.

Super L also started and finished a project. I'm not exactly sure what it is, but she worked on it for 3 1/2 hours. I think it maybe a castle of some sort? She says I can take a picture of it when she's done. (She took the pic. herself, it is her creation after all :) )

I remember finding pins in the weirdest places as a kid... the floor (always), the table, and worst of all, the couch. Mom would stick them there and forget about them. Usually I "found" them when I was trying to take a nap or something.

At least you had Super J put his shoes on! :o)

Thank you so much for helping me create the apron. I love it and wear it all the time cooking!!
