Tomorrow afternoon, J17 is having some friends over for a game afternoon (RPG, not video games) and she gave me a list of requested snacks for the party.
And what's a role playing game without some brain food:
Jell-0, evaporated milk and just the right blend of food coloring
Then, in addition to other cleaning and party planning (I14 is being confirmed this weekend and we'll host a family lunch on Sunday) I spent some time thinking about an apron.
Susan at e-i-e-i-omg! is hosting an "Apron Sew-off"!! How much fun is that! I seem to have misplaced my apron during the kitchen remodel and had to can tomatoes this year with a towel pinned around my neck- efficient but definitely NOT stylish.
So, first I pulled out the apron patterns that we have. Not much to choose from... we've got historical:
I've got a fabric in mind- one that I picked up with an apron in mind a while ago:
But I"m thinking... The apron in the middle takes 1.5 yards. I don't have enough
I've got about half a yard of the dark fabric in an odd shape - it's a charcoal gray with orange pinstripes and green viney bits. I was thinking of doing the center bodice panel, waistband and ruffle out of the dark. I think it's a plan- it may not work but- it's an apron. I can't wait to get started. I've got a November 21 deadline! What a great project to jump start me into sewing again!!
