Aprons...

I love to entertain and why not look cute while entertaining? Borrowing a line from Mindi... I am going to engage in "shameless self promotion"... I wanted to share my latest little project- Aprons! My sister, Jody, wears an apron every night when she makes dinner. She loves them! I went to a store in Highland, "Dear Lizzie", and saw that they had the cutest aprons ever! My mom is a subscriber to St. George Magazine ( which I admit I love to read when I am at her house) and there was a darling article on aprons... how they aren't just for grandmas anymore and told how they are making a bold comeback. So... since last summer and fall aprons have been on my brain. I made one for my friend, Tonia, for her birthday in August ( granted I started the night before the birthday party, without knowing how I was going to do it or even really knowing how to do a ruffle... it was the hardest thing I have ever done!) and it was a huge success- she loved it! My sister was hosting "bunko" at her house and decided to make 12 aprons...one for everyone that came. She struggled, and figured, and streamlined the process and then I stepped in and gleaned her knowledge. I made several for friends for Christmas and have decided to make them for birthdays. I have only made 8 or so, but Jody's last count was like 24! YIKES...l guess it pays to know her. Anyway... these are the latest that I have made. I just wanted to throw them out into the blogging universe. I am happy the way they turned out!

I love these, I have seen your work in person and they are amazing you should really go into business with your sister-work really close, spend a lot of time together, make millions!(or kill yourself!)

It is probably a good thing Jody and I live far apart so we can't work together... still like each other. As for the apron, you will just have to watch the mail and see!
