I realized I still hadn't put up any pictures of the cute etsy style apron I made this fall, then one of my sisters had the idea of all of us girls making cute aprons to premier on Thanksgiving. These can be seen on her cute little Thanksgiving apron video. The night before Thanksgiving one of my sisters and I had the idea of running the Thanksgiving morning 4 mile race in our new aprons. Our other sisters weren't on board for one reason or another (competitive about their running maybe?) But here you see a sister-in-law, three of my sisters, and me, two of us ready for the race in our apron finery. (I'm the one flashing the gang signs). And, to be fair, all of my sisters were faster than me- but I did have the ruffliest apron, so there!
After Thanksgiving I set about designing aprons for my daughters and my Mother-in-law. I like to make handmade gifts. Mixing and matching the fabrics was really fun. The challenge was that school kept getting cancelled, so finally I had to have the man of the house take the kids away so I could get some sewing done. That day, plus a very late night, up until 2 am. sewing, and Viola! My Christmas masterpieces. It's fun to know they could be using these aprons years on down the road!
I think I've got the sewing out of my system for a while!
