And here's something else that I am thankful for
This is an apron that I started working on for Christmas 2006 and yesterday, it became a completed project! WooHoo! I used a pattern for the apron, but I improvised on the pocket by doing a red work poinsettia.
Isn't it cool to finish things that got started and just sat around for the longest time, wondering if they would ever get done? Let me tell you what caused the StallOut on this project...It was a little bit of gathering in the waist line and I couldn't figure out how to do and get a straight seam. Well yesterday when I picked it up and looked at the fact that the gathering was in very specific spots (via the pattern) and that I could easily sew up to those spots and then sew the gather after everything else was tacked down, it became quite simple. I think it's going to be a lovely addition to our Christmas season.
