Dummy.

Yes I am.  After so much fuss about my stinkin camera cord, as I was putting our video camera away today, I had a little looksee at one of the cords for it, and thought “hmmm, this looks kinda like the cord for my camera.”  What do ya know, it works!  Too bad I discovered it after going without a camera cord for two months, and even worse, discovering it only hours after I finally ordered a new cord.  I guess that’s how it goes.  If anyone is missing a cord, let me know, I apparently like to collect them!
Here’s some pics of the apron that I wrote about earlier today.  It’s made so that it can have a low waist, or it can be easily folded up to have a higher waist.  I sewed the band around the waistline so that if you fold it to make a higher waist you cannot tell.  I think I like the higher waist better.
Higher waist, tied in back.
Lower waist, tied in front.

Aprons…

I think I found my new project to be OCD about for a while.  Making aprons!  Today is my friend’s birthday and I wanted to make her something special.  She cooks a lot, and has at least several people over for dinner pretty much every day, so I thought a cute apron would be fun for her to have.  It was really fun to make and now I’m excited to make more.  My mother-in-law’s birthday is coming up soon, so I think I’ll make one for her, and also one for my mom too since her birthday was a couple of weeks ago and I will be seeing her in a couple of weeks.  Hopefully neither of them checks my blog in the next couple of weeks!  

The best part about aprons is there is so many different variations that can be done.  I basically just sketched out a few ideas, and although I would change a few things same next time, I’m really happen with how it turned out.
I just left this posting to order a camera cord, so there will definitely be pictures very soon.  I’m sure you are all very excited, I really like to build the suspense.  If you can’t tell, I also really like to toot my own horn!
p.s. I know I said this is not a personal blog (and it’s not), but here’s a picture of my cute little boy since I don’t have my other pictures to post yet.
