January Apron

Last year, Teddy and I had a different doll quilt for each month of the year.  My quilting is at a standstill right now; just can't seem to get into it, although I do have a big quilt in the frames.  This doesn't mean I've lost all interest in quilting, but taking a rest from it. 

I've always liked to sew, and this year I think I will try "an apron a month" project, beginning with this ripply apron made from an online pattern.

I ordered this book from Connecting Threads for Christmas.  It has pull-out patterns for five full-length aprons, six half aprons, and four kitchen accessories (pot holders, place mats, table runner).  With the patterns I already have in my collection, I believe I can have a different apron for each month.

  4. Very Cute! I love aprons, can't wait to see the ones you make. Sometimes I get sick of one thing or another and it's nice to switch things up a bit every once in a while.

  5. I think that apron is so cute! I really should wear an apron when I'm in the kitchen...I make such a mess out of everything! Maybe when I move into the new kitchen I will start using one! LOL I look forward to seeing the others you make this year!

  6. Thought I'd pop back over and thank you for your sweet words on mine.. Yes I'm feeling better, thank goodness.. Sometimes I think it's the winter blues but there has been a lot of sickness, flu and other stuff going around.. Once one gets it they can't get rid of it.. Thank you for asking about me and I hope you are well and all of your family.. You take care and stay warm while doing those chores.

    We do need to take a break occasionally from even the hobbies that we enjoy.
