Right before I went doggy sitting I spent a happy Saturday at the sewing machine. I have no idea how those stars aligned but they did and I have something to show for it.
Ta dah.....my newest apron. It's a new pattern I downloaded from Connecting Threads. It was a brilliantly simple pattern that lines itself and then folds up to give you giant pockets. I am all about the pockets. By the end of the day they are full of junk. I can't be without my aprons.
I also cut up and sashed one of the panels I bought for practice with the leftover apron material in high hopes of doing some free motion quilting on the new Juki.
That other big box of sewing things showed up mercifully while The Mister was at the store. I just can't explain getting one more thing.
In my defense, Connecting Threads was having a batting sale and I love this fusible stuff for machine quilting. I bought four crib sized batts because for the rest of my life I am only going to make little ones. I am so over wrestling big heaps of material.
And of course there was material. I found this on clearance and thought it would make a very nice deep pocketed apron for the fall holidays. With this last box I am hoping the poor mail guy will get a break...uh, oh. I just remembered there is more soap stuff on the way. Christmas soap needs to be made the first of October. I also haven't forgotten about the Fall Soap Giveaway. I am wrapping and labeling all week so I can offer it up.....Sunday!!! Stay tuned.
