More Simple Sewing
I made this apron last week and in spite of the blue shade it can only make me feel happy. Another project from the lovely Lotta Jansdotter book, I used fabrics from stash, the blue is one of those lovely fair trade cottons that seem to offer such lovely depth of colour. The apron is simple to sew and I think the shape is very flattering. I need to always have a number of aprons as I tend to wipe my hands on the a lot while cooking and there have been occasions when I have noticed a shadow cross the face of a guest when looking at my apron. No more, because the beauty of this apron is....
It's reversible! What a splendid idea and now you see why I chose embellish the other side with a pear, not so random after all. I have been meaning to use this fabric for ages and am very happy to have found a use for it. So now I can quickly turn my apron around as I hear my friends crunching up the drive, this suits me so well as I am also the sort of person to hide the mess behind the sofa rather than actually put it away, a sort of "fur coat no knickers" approach to life. (I assure you that I do not wear fur and mostly remember my knickers but you know what I mean, I hope.)
Thank you all so much for your comforting words on my last post, I am feeling so much better already, somehow just saying it, or rather writing it down, made it seem so much smaller and less overwhelming. At the moment good days out number bad and looking for things that make me happy every day really helps so I am feeling positive that I can banish these blues quickly.
A particular "hello" also to Astoria who was commenting for the first time and is a recent knitting addict, thank you for your very sweet comment and I am always very happy to hear of new knitting addict/convert, coincidently I am knitting a bamboo camisole myself at the moment, pictures soon.
