Could this be the end of the drought?
We had our carpet cleaned yesterday, and the result was, I cleared out the pig's nest which is/was my sewing/computer room.
The sight of the clean spaces inspired me to make this promised apron, for the son of wonderful friends. He is such a bright young lad, full of interest in everything, and cooking is one of his interests.
I had promised to make an apron, so today turned out the be the day! I am very pleased with the result- what do you think?
I used a nice heavy Drill, a blue stripe, which should be protective of clothing. He has made some lovely slices for his parents' recent Birthdays. He is very interested in all types of cooking, & happy to experiment. We currently have a lot of Television shows with male and female cooks, and I think it is a great idea to stimulate children to be interested in nutrition, and cooking in general.
I really did enjoy making this, and will make another with some fabric his mother provided. As a prototype, I was quite pleased with this one.
I am hoping that I can get back into some sewing to help me feel productive. I hate that I have been feeling so lacklustre, and lazy. It is not so much a 'lazy' feeling, as a lack of motivation. I see lots of ideas for creativity, but find the small practical voice in my head saying. "Yes, but what use will it be?" While I realise Quilts never go astray, and are always welcome, I have lost the excitement I once held for the craft.
However I still love the thought of sewing, so hopefully I will get moving shortly! Over the years I have had 'off' patches with knitting, sewing, crochet, embroidery. The good hope is, I usually eventually return to them, so here is the hope I have broken the drought.
My Beloved Brother's Grandson, has recently turned 2!
Here he is with is cake, at his Grandparents' house. I love the starfish hands!!
Blogger is giving me the irrits! I keep trying to align my type to the left, but it keeps telling me I can't, although occasionally it does work. WTH??
I hope this is the left alignment. I love this Mark Knopfler Local Hero piece of music. It can reduce me to tears, on occasion. I hope you enjoy it too.
