With sewing off of the agenda, I have just been following my husband around for the past week. I'm pretty sure he is sick of me by now.
Lucky for him, a new machine is on the way.
In the meantime, I gained enough strength to enter back into my sewing room today. The dead machine still just sitting there on the table. I considered covering it in a shroud and creating a shrine to it. I can't bear the thought of just throwing it away.
I can't believe what a nerd I've become. I am moping around because my sewing machine broke. If I were cool, I would be moping around because my Corvette broke down. But I'm not cool. And I don't own a Corvette.
I am starting to get Carpal Tunnel from all of this thumb twiddling. So today, I decided to get out a few of my favorite creations and take pictures to share them with everyone.
This is the apron that took first place at the county fair. I love it because it's so June Cleaver. Though according to one of our farm workers, it looks like something Betty Ruble (of Flinstones fame) would wear. I can't say I disagree.
The cherry ruffle apron. My mom picked out the fabric for this. Fun and retro.
This is one of the aprons I made in Colorado this summer.
I love this one because it is made purely from scraps my mom had left over from a baby quilt she made for a charity auction a few years back.
The Moo Moo Tutu! That's a towel on the bottom layer. Perfect for wiping off your hands while cooking or it can double as a hot pad to take things out of the oven.
