and here is the apron I made for myself
the original pattern was shorter, but I decided a bit longer was better
this print is so busy that you can't even tell it has a pocket, much less that said pocket runs all the way across the front and even wraps around the sides a bit
and its divided into three sections so there's definitely a place for me the stash the cell phone with its headset in one corner and other important items in the other two sections
and I made this big enough that it even works over a heavy sweatshirt -- which is standard "in the house" wear at this time of the year
now let's see how much "dirty work" I can do in this before you can even tell anything is on it!
I know, these look just like the last pair I posted here
trust me, they are not
these, in fact, are the next size up -- same yarn though
so now I have two pair done -- only eight to go!
there is probably enough of this yarn left to make one more of the smaller size, but right now I'm sort of tired of looking at this color, so the next pair will be something different
and under the category "like I need another new project"
at our quilt guild meeting the other night, the Block of the Quarter pattern was introduced
I wasn't going to go there
after all, I have lots of projects in the que
but it kept calling out to me
how could I resist something called "Heart Song"
especially when I had all of the necessary fabric (black, red and a black and white print) in my stash
and the print is music -- like it was just MADE for this block
and it isn't like I have to do a whole quilt's worth of blocks -- just one or two (and I might end up with a bunch of them if I win the drawing)
ok, I washed them, now I have to see if I can actually DO the block and have it come out the size that is required -- if so, great -- if not, well I'll have a start on another piece to donate to the Alzheimer Project!
just a couple of quick errands to run today then it's back to the projects!
